but when i started building this computer the motherboard i have didnt exactly line up with the holes on the case. rather then forcing them to work i decided to get a new case, which i wanted to do anyway, but i wanted to buy it and have my computer already running so i could take the time and paint it. >.> that didnt work so now i gotta figure it out. i think i have decided to just oust my gemin2 and put a WC system in. something functional, quality, and on the budget what i think im going to do is get my watercooling parts, something to put the computer in while im painting the case, and the paint and do it all at once. about the door, i think im just gonna buy that one off the egg, if they still have it n stock when i get paidlol.

ya i know about the wires but like i said, this is pretty much temporary, i ddnt want to do all that, then un do it, then do it again. you know. the lazy factor
rust-o-leum primer
rust-o-leum professional flat black high performance enamel
rust-o-leum professional flat white high performance enamel

forgot what i used for clear coat but its by rust-o-leum too hehe

all bought from home depot.

as long as you spend the time to do it, the results will be great!

oh tip. do thin coats. if you put too much, it will start to run down the panels/case and when that happens.. ur gonna get dried paint running lol..

make sure you take out everything you can take off before painting (i.e. - the blue clips for cards, clips for drives, etc...) they are pretty easy to take off.. theres a pin that runs down thru the clips for the ones by the cards. use a small flat head to pop the top of the pin out and pull it straight up.. all the clips should fall out. same idea for the drive clips, use a small flat head and slowly pop each clip out. results should be satisfying if u spend the time. dont rush.

and dang it. my name is androo! not ian! *adds u to sig*
