The CM refurbs usually have such minor imperfections they would look like near top tier cases.

Edit: From my experience they actually have more refurb cases available than listed on the site. You could probably get something like a cosmos or atcs 840 if you called them (both should be around the same price as the HAF). In my opinion they're a little less tired than the HAF and would look superb with a PC job. They're right in socal. Some spare parts are also available for fairly cheap. Once again, they probably have more than listed on the site.

I'll be honest too, after coating a bunch of steel with success, my harbor freight gun has been failing hard on my atcs 840. I wish I considered this before botching 3 of the aluminum pieces in the case. Can you blast off my original coating if it's only on a couple of thick metal parts in the case? Never tried to blast off powder so I have no idea how stubborn it is.

yes i can blast absolutly everything, im not a guy who does this in a garage, my brother and i, own a full blow powdercoating show, we employee 26 people, and have contract with local arllen ness and other car builders.

i can take anything that is metal and even if u have 50 coats of it, im sure we can strip it

Where do you live in the Bay Area Rushmore? I've been wanting to see/buy a Black TJ07 with the window panel with black or red interior for some time now. Frozencpu, Performancepcs, and Murdermod all offer the service but they want a ridiculous amount of money. If you're interested in doing this case I'd be willing to pay nicely for it. I take it you're a professional painter of some sort? We also both live in the Bay Area so we can deal locally and avoid shipping charges .
