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.
Lol, well Ill probably

Make sure that after you're done sanding that you use a tack cloth before painting

Good Luck

A good alternative to sanding is to use a scotch pad (green scrubby) to dull the surfaces.


Sorry to piss in anyone's cornflakes but what a bunch of slackers...no scuff means your paint is not going to have maximum adhesion. The squirt only takes a few seconds..getting the surface ready is where your effort counts...unless you just don't give a crap how it turns out ignore the slackers and prep the case properly just like in Spooked Junglist's guiide.

Also if you are actuall expecting good results that will alsat over time don't bother using Ruistoleum: it's absolute garbage and will wipe off with alcohol.

Go ahead and spray some on a piece of scrap metal to test. Let it dry. Then take a rag dipped in alcohol and wipe it and see what happens...color on the rag. Rub harder: paint comes off.

The only paint I can say will work like factory is Duplicolor. That stuff is HARD. Only Lacquer Thinner or high solvents will effect it once cured.

That's what I have found out the hard way.

I dicked around with Krylon and Rustoleum and just decided to save that crap for painting stuff that does not matter like my steel targets

The Metalcast from Duplicolor is tricky to use but WOW...candy Metallic out the yang...

Alright well since you do client builds, I am going to believe that you know just about everything.

I went and returned my $10 of Rust-oleum cans, and picked up DupliColor Equivelants at a nice pricey $22. I got the Black Metal Efex paint stuff too Damn it was expensive.

I have one of those green sponge things you speak of - I will go over most of what I can since it easier than sanding - I don't have the patient to sand all the circles from the HDD racks and whatnot

Guys I need some advice here

I oversprayed on a corner of one of the case's panels and now its got droops horribly, then I tried to wipe it off and now it is a mess

Should I sand the corner or the whole thing off? What grits of sand paper?

this is why you need to sand. you should sand the whole thing with a fairly high grit sandpaper and then once the whole things flat start your next layer you should probably also go read a faq on painting

Man you guys use strange language...

Yeah, and remember to use a tack cloth after you're done sanding, you don't want pieces of paint/metal/dirt, etc, to end up getting stuck on your case.
Also, paint 8+ inches away from the object you're painting, or you'll notice more of those "droops"
