Beat up case

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I got an old case from a friend.. It is made out of normal metal like you run of the mill case and it is pretty stable no buckles etc... But the case has a fair share of dents and scratches I want to know if anyone has some methods for getting the dents out. I will post pics tonight of the dents..

EDIT: Sorry for posting in wrong place mod or admin please move thread

lol yeah. however... theres a chance of bending awkwardly or breaking the metal, if its flimsy... how durable is the case? chances are you might be able to hammer it out. Guess i just took the technological approach... LOL. you could just hit it

no you would have to repaint the whole case after straightening it

I might have a rubber ended mallet laying around to get the warps out of it I got quite a few out already but there is a little but strong dent and its been being quite a bugger. The case is quite strong it was actually for some 800 MHz old PC but still looks quite nice..

In addition to the other suggestions:

How big are these dents?

If they aren't all that big, or if you can reduce them down to smaller dents you maybe able to hide most of them with Hammered Paint..

I use hammered paint for most of my case mods.. It's a thick paint that leaves a nice pelted look after it sets.. Perhaps using multiple colors and patterns would help hide them..

When you post some pics, we maybe able to help you more..

Good Luck
