post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Howdy all! Well to start off my old HP pc of 7 years old just died about 5 days ago and it was just sitting around till today when i striped it of all parts wiring,ect and began to paint it. Also i am tacking apart all of the parts of the pc so i can use them for my own usage . But my question is how much can a HP Paviliona1101n sell for when it is painted Black, Blue, some red. I will have Pics up tomorrow Also it is just the case striped of all parts.

Hi.

The resale value of a modded case is not much higher than stock; the craftsman ship and "name-association" plays a large part.

A case modded by Bill Owen, or CyberDruid will be able to net a higher sale-price (no offense, it's only that time has shown that Peeps like those 2 Gents create superlative work again and again.... and again... and again.

...but my intention is not to deter you. If your paint-job is stellar you might be able to get a little more scratch out of it.

I think a more exact answer would be easier to assess once the job is done and you post the results.
