Rebuilding: CM HAF 932 for first timers.

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Hello,
Do you own a HAF 932, and want to disassemble+paint it but you are scared you might not be able to rebuild it after?
Do you want to buy the HAF 932 but dont like the grey color inside the case, and your willing to disassemble+paint it but your scared you might not be able to rebuild it?

WELL

fear no more!
I have put together some guidelines+pictures onto how to rebuild your
HAF932

All you need to rebuild your case is:
Pack of 100, 1/8" Rivets
Rivet popper
Some positive attitude
Patience

AGAIN if you are experienced enough to rebuild your case then this isnt the place for you. I just wanted to make a guide to those who are scared/not sure/thinking, about painting+disassembling then rebuilding.
** YOU CAN paint your case without disassembling, but i always prefer to just go the extra way, just to make sure =]


**its 3:23 AM where I live, so if you find any typos or mistakes feel free to correct/criticize











DONE!
Good luck with yours =]

use 1/8" drill bit remove rivets, just use a normal power drill, the bit cost around 5$ popper 15 and rivets 7$
paint was a little expensive i got the automotive one, duplicolor =P 2 primer 2 matt black.

Good luck! and let me know if i can help with anything =]

You've helped with that post, although one question, think it's warm enough to paint the case outside?
this is the temps around here:

EDIT: I'll probably be doing it in the next week or two if I do end up painting

55° to 75° F is ideal; 40 to 60% relative humidity is recommended

hmm well I guess I'll have to hope for a warm day before my video card gets back, because my entire apartment building is carpeted, so no chance of doing it inside. Otherwise I'll end up waiting until my buddy saves up enough to pay for his build, and paint it while I'm getting his all set up. (which could take 2-4 months)

Good idea, wonder if they'll let me... On second thought, people might complain if I make the underground parking smell like spray paint... But we shall see.
