I would give it some more time to cure properly but am not entirely sure why it may be peeling so easy

Couple Notes first:

1.) when you take this apart, keep in mind the pieces that will fall out if you are not careful. There are two springs that will drop out right away if you go too fast (not a big deal but annoying when they bounce away)

2.) Make sure the button/pins are disengaged (the out position like you are installing a drive)

OK...

The plastic pieces are actually fairly easy to remove once you know the trick. When you are looking into the side of the case directly at them, on the left side you'll see a little sheet metal bump protruding out from the drive bay at the very edge which is basically the catch used to keep the plastic pieces from sliding back towards the back of the case (locking them in position basically).

Lift up on the left side of the plastic (towards you away from the the drive bay) and then slowly slide the release assembly towards the back of the case (to the left). Once you go far enough, you will be able to pull it straight out but I recommend tipping it downwards slightly so you can see the springs and be able to grab them easily. Keep all the pieces together (Ziploc sandwich bags are your friend).

You don't need to force it, I found they were pretty easy to get out once you lift that left edge up and slide them towards the back of the case.

Also keep in mind, after you paint your case, you may scratch your paint on that little catch/bump putting them back in so try putting them in again now before painting just so you are familiar with doing it prior to starting the paint job. That way you are more comfortably putting it back in and can keep that left edge up sliding back in over that little sheet metal bump/catch.

I was going to head out and buy a new meter today (my old one is literally dead) but didn't get around to it. I'm hoping to pick up one tomorrow and I'll make a point of checking out that switch. I got distracted today with work and then with shopping at a local goody store after having a couple amazing idea neurons fire in my brain. (also known as - I had a new idea for my case modification and went and bought some material from a local metal shop)

Quick question: Will the 230mm fans fit in the 5.25" bays? How many bays will/does it occupy?

Also, I'm going to add a few 120mm fans to the case, and maybe replace the rear exhaust fan. Are these CM fans good enough replacements? Or should I stick to some fan namebrand like Scythe?
