Yea I'd like a closeup of the window myself (how you mounted it actually) it looks great though man! Is it mirrored? Or is that just the way the picture looks?

I took some big pics so u can see
i couldnt get a too much of a close up of the mounting coz it wouldnt focus
so i took large pic and converted the tifs into jpegs

the mounting is just 4 PCI screws through the acrylic to the frame of the case, in the 4 corrners

I didn't realise the plastic was bolted straight to the case, I thought it was just a BIG window at first.. I'm going to just have a smalish window only showing the top section not the PSU or anything.

I put a second coat of primer on today but I had ran out of the stuff I got from halfords so I got some more from a local hardware shop. Big mistake. The halfords primer went on perfect nice and smooth etc but the other stuff was terrible so I was forced to wet n dry it which I wasn't planning on doing. Oh well end up with a better finish anyway.

So then I got onto my first coat of black and it's gone on great, I was expecting it to look awful since I havn't painted anything before but it's even and smooth so i'm happy
I ran out of black though too... Getting some more in the morning, this was meant to be a cheap paint job but it's not working out that way ;[

Almost finished now, I hate wind. Wasted so much paint because of it. Just got the clear coat left to do but i'm waiting for the wind to die down a little. I don't want to mess up the final finish.

Anyway some pics ;D Camera phone+Sun=Bad!









It looks a bit better in person, i'm pleased with how it's turned out anyway. One thing thats going to annoy me though is the white foam things, I taped them up since I figured the paint would only crack on them, i'm going to replace it with some black if I can find some. I just hope the clear coat goes on ok now ;]

Na, I couldn't choose between Matt or Gloss so I went with Satin ;l Not bad for Halfords own paint eh. I just put on my first coat of clear, looks ok up to now except for a little patch.. You know when the can is almost empty and it splutters, well it spluttered with 1/4 of a can left >;l I dumped that can and moved onto the next i'm not risking more splutters.. Still real windy too, there is going to be some clear coated flowers in my garden

Not sure if this is what happened with your 'sputters' but usually it's a clogged nozzle (especially if you still have 1/4 of the can left). Whenever you are done using the can (for the day, or the afternoon in between coats) turn the can upside down and spray it until it sprays air. When upside down it won't feed the nozzle, this will air it out and make sure it's clean.
