It's not that bad of a drive for the work they do. We are lucky to be so close to some good outfits that do stuff like that.

No I never had work done by them, but I called them and the dude sounded pretty chill. He had no problems with all the little pieces I asked about and said don't sweat it at all, pretty much anything can be included with the case. He couldn't give me an exact price of course without seeing the case, but judging from other work I am assuming about $100 - $120 maximum. Apparently they are the go-to people in the area for powdercoating and other kinds of specialty coatings. the website has some amazing stuff on there.

I still haven't ordered the parts because I may want to do a Lian Li front panel card reader as well, and I definitely want one of the DVD drive cover bezels for it.

purchase all original LL parts for your case: 3.5 / 5.25 covers, including dvd drive cover.

powdercoat video card casing, do a MDPC black sleeving job for all cables.
if your doing WC, do shiny black XSPC tubes.
powdercoat the ram sinks too, and paint the fans purple and the fan casing black.

All awesome ideas. You guys are starting to get me pretty hyped up about this. Thanks!

Yeah that one looks kind of crappy to me actually. I don't like the color at all and it looks like they did it with the from bay covers attached already. That would suck for when you want to add another device or access the front for any reason. When they do one for me it won't come out looking like that at all I hope.

When it comes to powder coating, most places seem to actually like it when you have several pieces that need to be coated. That way they don't have to switch powder colors for just one piece.

Hope it turns out nicely.
