Just wanted to post a few pics of my first paint job... nothing fancy yet, but a good start for a first timer I think.

The "Bumper Black" provides an very nice satin finish.
Looking good

There are a couple of drips, but otherwise it's a great overall job. Coverage is very uniform, and matt looks great.

Yea I'm not a painter at all... How would I get rid of the drips? Sand and reapply and hope for the best is the only thing I can think of...

The drips was mostly because of a can of Rust-Oleum is SUCKED hard core... It was spitting and I was slow enough to keep trying after I cleaned the head. Well of course it didn't work so I threw it away and went to the Home Depot and got a different brand and that went a lot smoother. Thanks for the comments.

Yeah, just sand it down with some low grit sand paper and reapply in thin coats. After that, you're ready to rock.

Thanks for the tip... I went looking for the drip you were talking about and OMG that's ugly lol I didn't even notice it. Going to get the dremel out now and just cut that piece out of the case.

Hehe I went dremel crazy last night... I got my new fans in, but I guess I didn't notice they were 38mm think so the one I was going to put in the front of my case wouldn't fit... so I got a bright idea to just cut a hole in the front of my case so it would fit lol... You can't see it because it's behind a closed front case door. So I guess it came out ok lol... poor sharky
