Get a good self etching primer, frog tape and a fairly reasonable newspaper. Tape off all the surfaces you don't want painted. A self etching primer should require zero sanding. But if you must, get some ScotchBrite green pads and cut them into quarters. Take your time and bump the primer application trigger to dust the surface. Don't sweat coating the entire surface in one coat. That's how paint runs and drips when you go ham fisted during application of a coat.

Should you get runs and drips during the primer stage, the green pads will come in handy. Go over the surface lightly with a green pad til you're satisfied you have evened the surface. You will need a tack cloth to remove all the primer dust from the surface. Once you're satisfied with the results your surface should be ready for paint. Paint it the same way you primed it. Light coats until the primer is covered and let the surface dry for about an hour between coats. You should solid results at the end of this process. I have a toddler so I understand spending time with the kiddies. If you like you can stretch out the process as long as you want.

Seriously though, I would invest in a small air compressor and a High Volume Low Pressure Gravity fed paint gun. The paint cup will always be mounted at the top of the paint gun. Cans of paint are cheaper than aerosol canned paint by volume. You can get self etching primer by the can as well.

Take your time in the exterior surface prep process. Frog tape will do a solid job keeping freshly applied paint from seeping into seams and should not peel fresh paint when pulling it off the protected surface. smile.gif

Hello,
I own 922 and I'm thinking of removing a HDD rack to increase airflow to the gpu. I was wondering if it would be a good idea to install hard drives sideways in 5.25" bays, and cut holes on the side for power and sata cables. It barely fits, so I'm worried about vibration causing too much noise. I plan to add 3 hdds on top of the 5.25 bays and than add 2 x 120mm fans in front of them. Did anyone try doing this? Any help is appreciated.

I wouldn't do it like that. Vibration is a killer. But you can install it in a 5.25 bay with an adapter that will put it in parallel with the doors of the case and best of all flat for optimal spooling. thumb.gif
