I was considering painting but if I'm gonna paint the case I'll just do the whole thing in chrome, I think it would look sweet in chrome with the black meshes and red LEDs

I would assume it would perform better with the top as exhaust since heat rises, but I haven't tested this

“The louvered grills were inspired by an exotic sports car. They look aggressive without compromising airflow. They were cnc milled from 1/5″ thick 6061 aluminum. We re-sprayed the Phantom with a “White Pearl Flake” Automotive paint by House of Kolor brand. You can see the Pearl flakes sparkle in person. We took laborious steps to carefully dismantle the chassis, clean and prep and then start a long time-consuming process of sanding prep, applying 3 full coats of paint, more multiple grit sanding between each coat, followed by 4 separate clear coats. This is followed by ample proper dry times and then the finishing touches of buffing with heavy cut compound followed by a final buff with swirl remover.”
