Update - Good news!
After a horrible week of trying to set up some paintwork with a few people, the guy over at Long Island Customs said the magic words "$150, 1 week"
I am trying to arrange to get the parts out there to him today (I have to call him later) so we'll see what happens.
I was all set to post here today saying that I have decided to paint it myself, due to the fact that I couldnt arrange any pro paint, then I checked my email this morning to find good news. Ironically I am still going to have to paint a couple of things myself, but they are small things that I can
do in my garage, things like the psu cage and a button or two, etc. Thats good tho since I'll get some practice.
Knowing that this is going to be taken care of by pros and look sweet (crosses fingers) is a huge weight off my back, and it was the only thing causing the hold up. I have been receiving packages here and there of finish parts etc and I was all crazy because I am looking at these cool things, envisioning the assembly, only to glance over at a bunch of unpainted case parts collecting dust - no more.
now, its on
@Manyak - $150-1 week
but lets see how this turns out first before you run your case over to him
