Wildfire, I know it's too late now, but for a learning experience - for that hair, the best option would have been to let the paint completely dry then lightly sand the hair down/out with some high grit paper. Then you can lightly coat the sanded part back with some color.

lol thanks for the info albeit a lil late, next time ill use tweezers. ive managed to get the panel nice and smooth again but i am going to wait until the next sets of mirage get here to finish painting it, i figure if i do another coat or two over it, it will look fine.

yea ive pretty much learned by today that with paint its better to finish let it dry then handle any issues(i swear every peice ive done gets like 1 cat hair directly in the center of it)

UPDATE: Their will be no pictures today, sorry.

All i did was clean up my room and garage enough that i can walk around again. After that i did some work on the top panel area that i screwed up. Managed to smooth it out, once i get more of the mirage paint im going to put a few coats over the problem area and it should look like it was never messed up in the first place(i hope). I washed down and repainted the mesh peices that came out bad back up to color coat and also fully painted the mobo tray.

Today i fully ran out of paint and will have to run to the auto store tomorow morning. Oh yea i also ordered all the remaining parts i need today. I bought the following list of crap.

Grocery List
1.)2 kits of mirage
2.)led 2 pin header
3.)70 rivets
4.)ac ryan blackfire blue led/uv green fan
5.)another dvd drive(i still cant beleive i broke the first one...)
6.)random free led keychain thingy that came free with my purchase from autobarn(lol)

My plan for the remaining days so you guys know where im at
Mon. paint 3 peices black
Tue. paint 3 peices black
Wed. paint 3 peices black
Thur-Tue. roadtrip to florida
Wed. rivet everything together, begin painting side panels with mirage
Thur. finish painting, begin fitting all the wiring
Fri. solder all the wiring that needs lengthening, dvd drive mod
sat. finish assembly
sun. rejoice!

Anyhow sorry i didnt have any pictures not much to show expect things to get intresting next wednesday.

Another small non visual update unfortunately, ill try to make it short and to the point.

Today i went out bought some more paint. Painted the bottom and back panels and finished the mesh peices.

Tomorow ill do the other half of the top panel and both of the bay panels.

On wednesday i may or not get it riveted depending on how fast i get this painting done and if my rivets arrive from performance-pcs.

Sorry for the crappy no picture updates today's should be the last one. I just dont see the point in taking pictures of painting everything black ill get up some pictures tomorow of all the finished peices.
