thanks though - was expecting this to be done by thursday Looks like Ill have to wait untill next vacation
keep in mind if the case and folding team is whats holding you back you can just run your computer out on your desk, its safe. a good paintjob makes your case really unique.

I merely wiped the entire interior down with rubbing alcohol and lint free cloth. Then painted with Rustoleum Professional Grade Semi-Gloss black. I held a halogen shoplight very closely to dry paint and allowed to air dry for 24hrs. It turned out really well, and I have had no issues with peeling or any blemishes either. You can see my paint job in my Re-Build Thread!

Edit: I also used one entire can of paint!

Well I do want a perfect job that will last years and I did some looking around and i guess paint flakes off of polished metal after a while.... I whipe down my case alot so that means the paint will get wear and tear, last thing I can bear is a chip in my art.

I will wait untill I have more time, and probably a modular PSU because I just finished wiring my beastly PSU before posting this, and I don't have much skin left on my knuckles!@

I just use Rustoleums engine paint, And that crap never scratches or flakes off. its also Bendable. So it won't crack

I don't even sand or primer i just clean the case and thats it.

i would use duplicolor sandable primer or self etching primer. and maybe some bumper black paint. here is what i used on my case:

you can check my thread in my sig on how it turned out.

alright I went and got me some Rustoleum (sp?) branded paint. all of it is the same brand, I got automotive grade primer which the dude at store said would stick to anything except galvanized steel so looks like im in the clear


Except the day I decide to paint, there is a massive and continuous dust storm brewing up so I cant even walk outside without turning 4 shades darker. (lol)

thanks guys, hope the sanding does not kick me in the ass later

Well, all that sanding and stuff is only necessary if you want like, a real high quality glossy finish.
If you just want to paint your case, and not have it flake off, I guess it would work if you don't sand much.

does that dust include sand? if so, quick, put your case parts outside - effort-free sanding ftw!
