LOL

and TBH you don't need to bake the paint.

I was in a hurry

One extra step that I skipped which I would recomend is to strip the casing down to bare metal. Use a chemical stripper CAREFULLY and then use prepsol and lacquer thinner afterward to clean the metal. Then use a good primer. I would say elf etching. And then lay up the coats and let them dry normally. If you need to accelerate the process IR is the way to go with some heatlamps or those cheap halogens from Lowes.

Baking is not required

Getting the case to bare metal assures the best adhesion. The best grip is from self etching . the mor layers of sandable primer you feel like laying down before the top coat the better.

I went super fast and the truth is if you take your time and spend a week at ti you will get much better and loner lasting results than if you rushed it.

I've heard a lot about the risks of taking apart a PSU - however, there's a generic one which I would love to paint sitting in SFF, I just don't want to kill myself. Will I need to unscrew the PCB or anything to take off what you painted, or will it just unscrew and then slide off?
