I hope it helps.

Will help on the manufacturing side and give customers options to choose their own colors now that CL doesn't offer even primer.
Then again, maybe they'll change their mind on the primer options. My case was actually shipped raw to its first owner. Mind you Mountain Mods has had the option for bare aluminum and Jim has said they wanted to make a better case then MM. Just a thought Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
edit: removing the powder coat can get expensive. I'll have to ask my friend who had his Th10 top redone. I do recall he said blasting was not an option from what the shop recommended. I asked because I was thinking of redoing my case and he's done a few powder coated cases already.
Again, I'll wait for the CL employees to confirm or to at least take this into consideration to help not only their business, but give customers more options now that color is limited.
double edit: oh, and you read my post incorrectly, just like mega man. English (Muircah) grammar can get confusing sometimes. it says raw aluminum and you do primer/paint or powder coat on your own
(find a shop or diy). Never said raw + primer. It would have been just "primer" in the first place. But I clearly know this option is going away.Edited by wermad - 6/29/15 at 5:09pm
