Painting Case Interior

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
How do you paint the case interior? I want to paint a CM690 midnight or jet black from the inside. How do I do it? What kind of paint do I use? How long would it take to dry? Thanks for the help!

All cases are basically built the same, you have to derivet all the pieces, paint em all, then re-rivet back together.

I'm doing just that to my Thermaltake Armor Jr atm. Most would go with Krylon or Duplicolor paints, which are of higher quality, but any paint will do if you're on a budget, you'll just have to apply more coats and that finish won't be as good. Dry time is relative to the type of paint used. The Duplicolor textured I used was totally dry to touch in about 10 minutes .

use automotive paint, to get a good finish, sand the interior down with 800 grit paper then use alcohol wipes to get rid of any debris, do 3-4 light even coats of primer leaving about 30 minutes between each coat, leave it overnight to dry then sand the primer with 1200-1500 grit paper and do 4-5 light even coats of colour again leaving 30 minute between coats and after the final coat leave it overnight. if you need any pics just check the projects in my sig

You'll need a rivet gun

I wouldn't reapply rivets personally. I would just get some nuts, bolts, and washers

Those nuts and bolts would have to be quite small to replace rivets.
