If you have a sand blaster at your disposal, maybe a couple of days (not counting drying) of work. It took me nearly a week of hand sanding and spraying, then I waited another week before I put anything back in the case. It really depends.. The longer you wait, generally, the better it will turn out. Patience is the #1 tip for painting your case!! This
link has a lot of manuals for painting cases and other things. I believe I used this
one for doing mine. Check out my sig for my case pictures while painting. I'm sure someone else can help you more, since that was my first and only case painting attempt, but I am very happy with it. Figured I would point you to some good guides. Good luck! Don't forget to post pics!

That's a good guide!
