First time case painting need help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well I've finally decided I'm going to paint the interior of my cm 590 black instead of going to buy another case (so that I can at least have a little fun with it lol). I will probably do this in a couple weeks when i get free time but I wanted to ask some questions since this is my first time trying anything like this.

1. Will I need to remove all the rivets in the case or would it be possible to paint the interior of the case without removing them?

2. I was also wondering which guide you guys would suggest for trying this?

3. I also plan on making some extra cable management holes as well so I would need help for that as well?

Thanks.

1. I dont see why you would need to remove any rivets just to paint.
2. what do you mean guide?
3. That sounds like a good idea and the easiest way to do those is either w a holepunch/hydrolic knockout or cheapest is getting a nice step-bit to drill your holes with. also, be sure to sand the holes down nice and smooth or put rubber grommits in there so you dont cut any of your cables
