It's really not that hard at all this is just my first build. All you need is a drill and a 1/8" drill bit, painters tape, 80 grit sandpaper, 220 or higher grit sandpaper, primer, spray paint, a rivet gun, and rivets with 1/8" diameter and 1/8" grip.

just drill out the rivets (first-timer here, it's as easy as it sounds). Once the rivets are out, sand the panels that are to be painted with the 80 grit, then the 220 grit sandpaper. put tape around the edges that you don't wanna get paint on, over the windows, and over the vents from the outside.
Paint 2 layers of primer on the areas to be painted. Then paint 2 or 3 layers. After letting it dry for 12-24 hours, re-rivet the case. I would attach the drive cages, bottom, and front panel together first. Then the rear panel, mobo tray, and top together (in that order).

It's just that easy
Hes right b-roca, it is very easy. Follow his build log, mine, and many others on here. We have all done painting. The rivet thing is definitely the best choice but if you cant take them off, you can still paint it, thats how I did mine. Just look at peoples build logs in their sig!


Plus rep for you Meeks for helping another HAFr out! Thats what I want this thread to be all about!

well thanks touge. I thought about just painting my case all black so I wouldn't have to de-rivet it. But I figured that i'm getting wet, I may as well go swimming lol.

and roca- I expect to see a paint log outta you just playin

oh, almost forgot to tell what my random injury was from. Ice. I went to load up some 10 lb bags from the storage cooler and one of the bags had some ice on the outside that stabbed/cut me

I for one would prefer to run my PSU like that, but the mounting holes only seem to accept it in the fan-down position.

yep I will probably paint when I get the parts for my next build because i'm loving all the black interiors around here and I fell left out lol

and if I just paint the interior black I don't have to drill out rivets and stuff right?
