That's up to you. if you have clearance problems with your fans and your heatsink, you may want to do that. I kept mine on and painted the honeycomb plastic for a cool looking effect.

2) How do i mount the 2 fans at the top between the metal and the plastic?
you will have to cut the honeycomb plastic to get them to fit, but they will fit if you get some low profile 120mm fans like the Yate Loons, but they arent LED's from what I've seen.

3) How do i prepare the metal and the plastic for spray painting?
It's definitely imperative that you prep the metal before painting. this metal flakes like crazy if you don't prep it first. trust me, i'm dealing with it. I've read other people scuff the surface with 600 or 800 grit sandpaper first, put primer on it, then paint it. Make sure your coats are light enough to prevent running. You may need up to two coats of primer and three of regular paint. if you have another old case to test your skills out on, do that first just so you get an idea of how to go about putting the layers on to make it look good.

4) What shade of Red paint should i get so that through the metal mesh it looks to be blood red?
I used Killz Candy Apple Red and it looks great.

5) Any hints/tricks to help with the above?
Take a look at my mod project HERE for ideas and tips. Lots of pics there too. Take lots of pics!

did you primer it first? if not, be careful when working inside the case. it will flake like crazy.

you take your rig apart to upgrade, and when you put it all back together... nothing!
I just took everyting out to silence my cm690. I got a couple Scythe Slipstream 1200's and some acoustipac ultimate. I cut the crappy fan grills out and applied the foam, put a new hsf in put everything back in and nothing works Now I have to go back and figure out what I did wrong.
In the end I'll probably just be but now it's frustrating as hell...

Heh... yeah that is always frustrating. Make sure this foam or whatever you're talking about isn't grounding out your board or something. Check all power connecters, usb connecters, power switch, reset switch etc. Good luck

nope, it was my RAM. running 4 sticks can be tricky and my mobo just wanted me to swap kits around. (mental note for next time) Then I booted it up and my mobo couldn't find my boot file... I swapped HDD cables as well... swapped them, made myself a snack and posted this on my desktop less than 15min later. Yep, one of those stupid oversights I can about
