Which paint should I use and which application method? I want to paint mine flat black for sure, but man... I'm both lazy and I also want to do it right and also perfectly the first time.

When I did mine it was actually easy. I did all the cutting first...I had everything planned already. That took like an hour or so.

Then I took it in the shower for a good cleaning Some hot water and let it sit for an hour out in the summer heat. The case was so hot I could hardly touch it.

After that I sprayed 2 coats of primer letting it dry for about 30 minutes between coats.

Then came 2 coats of Krylon Flat Black...same thing...30 minutes between coats.

That's it, I did not sand or anything. It looks great and dried very tough, only a few small scratches 6 months later.

Total time was about 6 hours from unplugging everything to starting it back up

****EDIT****

I had many people tell me that a jigsaw make better cuts and is more easy to use. I used a dremel and it slid right thorugh the metal with no issues. Nice clean cuts.

Here is a shot of the rear fan cut I did.



For paint it took about 1.5 cans of each...primer and paint.

Wow, that was an excellent description. Thank you! I think I can remember that for when I might be finally ready to take on this task which seems quite enormous to me. But I admit that I would enjoy it once I am finally doing it.

Yeah, I know: why not? I don't know why not. lol! And now would be the perfect time since the air is crisp and dry. Not only that, but I've had my rig in the CM 690 since the first week of April of 2008, so it needs a very thorough cleaning.

And y'know, I would probably enjoy the task since it would mean I would go caseless for those times when I would want to take a break and spend time using my system. I kinda miss having a caseless rig.

Edit: lol wow I still don't feel like doing it quite yet. But I do hate physical labor. lol

Keep us posted...I'll be waiting.

Me personally...as soon as I get a case I am thinking about how to tear it up I can never leave anything the way it is designed.

Maybe I should have been an engineer? That is one of my next goals, making a complete computer case from scratch...all aluminum...just the way i want it

I had to cut out the hard drive bay last month...I hated that thing there
