External rads can be awesome.

Super glad I didnt jump straight into painting with the parts I needed. Got my paint just a little too thick on the test dummies. Thanks again Soundworks for the guide, pretty happy with the way things are coming out minus my mistakes on thickness. Check out my log for the newest updates.

Picked up one of these today.
700
comes with 2 12"x24" sheets of adhesive vinyl. In blue of course. Starting with Covering the green letters on my 680 then maybe more things on the case. Any suggestions of what to cover?

What's the best way to get a flat black and flat blue trim finish on the Phantom?

I wanna make it cost effective I don't wanna spend money on paint I don't need.

So which kinda paint do I need and what's the best place to get em?

Some people said black primer but my friend said it's not necessary. Lowe's said they don't carry black primer.

I need to know what kinda paint to get and where to get it frown.gif

Unless your pc looks like that, external rads look terrible and the point of going from Phantom to Phantom 410 is the downgrade in size, which plays a vital roll in why i would be dropping in case size.

black primer can sometimes be hard to find. Alot of times Black Primer is only around the Automotive Section as it's used on cars alot. Rustoleum is the brand I've seen and It should be at most places that carry Rustoleum Paint and I have seen it at either Lowes or Home Depot.

Paint won't stick to the metal without primer. You can buy paint that sticks to plastic, just make sure you read the label. It'll say in big letters on the outside.

I find Home Depot has a much better selection of paint than Lowes.

I just realized your friend said it's not necessary, But to get a flat black look you might just wanna go with just black primer and no other paint. The legs on my Phantom are flat black and it's only Rustoleum Black Automotive Primer.
