From what I can see on your order (in particular, the 'st' in the date), you and I ordered our S5s on the same day. Unfortunately, I had to request a 2-week delay in my shipping so that I could be back home to receive it. These new two weeks are going to be difficult.

Enjoy your S5!

Let's hope that your case doesn't get lost in the delay!!! (of coarse, I may end up with your case too!)

Have you received a Shipping Notice yet?

Nope. I expect that CL are just sitting on it at their end.

Hey guys,

I had a few questions to anyone whom has their case or part of their case painted after recieving it from the factory, as in with the stock powder coated finish on it.

ive been interested in painting for a while now and ive always wanted a custom painted case for a long time, however it has always left me divided in the sense that I could simply purchase a new case of my choosing with said paintjob, but then again Caselabs cases are perfect for this type of modfication in the sense that all the external panels can be removed easily..... However ive been at a loss for how the existing powder coat finish would potentially effect the proposal of a new paintjob....

Obviously prep is extremely important and the powder coat on the cases as they come shipped from the factory are extremely durable! I cant imagine trying to simply sand this all down, or using hard chemicals to try and remove them, or if they are simply painted over without much prep at all.... etc.

Just hoping someone could shed some light on this.... Ive seen Daniel at Singularity do some amazing paintjobs on Caselabs cases, however he hasn't really elaborated on the specifics of this topic unfortunately.

thanks

Take a look at this video by Daniel (Singularity):

At about 4:00 minutes in he talks about how he starts painting a CaseLabs case.

oh dang, I feel quite silly now!

I use to watch all of his videos religiously but ive just been inactive with this hobby of mine in general for many many months now, so I have some catching up to do wink.gif

Thank you so much! What he talked about was all I needed to know. Normally the only painting I do is with complex automotive grade painting, usually with raw epoxy fiberglass and carbon fiber, usually of odd shapes and sizes, so just scuffing a metal box and painting with much simpler cosmetic paints is going to be alot easier... looking forward to it!

Depends what you want to do in the case.

As you may already know, the side panels can also be switched to either side.
If your rads/fans are just in the pedestal, then you may not need the vents.
Windows are for show, if you want to see what is in that side, that's up to you.

When I had a side-mounted rad, I had a windowed/vented panel on the left side.
Then I switched to a solid/windowed panel when I took the rad out to put in the pedestal.
I chose to use a solid right-side panel, but that was my personal preference.

Have a look at the S8 builds here for some ideas on the various combinations for some inspiration as well.smile.gif
