hmm anodizing steel . ne one can jump in and correct me, but I dont think you can do so to steel, unless you add another metal to the surface that can be anondized, (aluminum spray, ???).

Isn't the 932 already aluminum? That's the reason I mentioned it.

EDIT: Looked it up on NewEgg, it is Steel. My bad, so just powder coating then.

no worries, reason why they say the haf looks and feels like a tank, lol

I was going to say if the 932 is made out of aluminum then the side panel must be a thick layer of it or something because that itself weighs a good 10lbs.

I might have exaggerated a bit but it's heavy for a side panel, maybe i am just used to mid tower side panels.

Well if you do it right you shouldn't need more than HAF a can of Spray.

Now mind you I did mine in the winter in 43 degree Fahrenheit temps or so. And it was slightly drizzly outside too. When you paint in hotter temps that affects how much paint is wasted.

Some people will use Primer(even though 932 comes pre-primed) and then spray with a couple top coats of color. Which to me is kind of overkill cause when I painted mine the black scraped off where my doors met the back of the case. Too thick and you can muck up the affect you're going for.

Ummm correct me if I'm wrong werm, but isn't the company of your system's neg diggs building that case out of steel? And don't they offer anodizing?

I think that if they are then the thickness of the steel may play a factor. But I'm pretty sure you can anodize any metal as long as it's properly grounded prior and during application. I can chrome Aluminum and Plastic, but Steel by far looks the best when chromed. Ask any automotive restoration guy and they'll all tell you the old chromies are the best chromies. Nothing comes close.

You are talking about the inside of the case that comes pre-primed right?

It's a lacquer on the inside not primer, otherwise you could paint directly onto it without keying it first.
