A full Color Mod to a Fractal Design Arc Mini R2.

Complete Tear Down and House of Kolor Kandy Paint Job is what this Case Mod is all About.
No fancy Hardware or Metal Fabrication with this one. Its all about the Brandywine Kandy for this one.

Step 1 is to Apply the Foundation for this Beautiful Kandy Paint. HOK KD3000 is the Epoxy Primer i have applied.
One of the most important steps to any paint Job is the Foundation and Prep you Do. Spend your time on these and
the rest of the Work will go a lot smoother.

Yummy...House of Color paints are not cheap, but the results speak for themselves! I used some House of Color Tangerine Pearl or something on a build many, many years ago...but only because I got a huge discount on it at the time. This is going to be pure class

What paint did you use?
Thank you ..

All Paint From House of Kolor. Galaxy Grey Metallic for the Base , then Brandywine Kandy
Over that. Kandy is translucent so allows that metallic to sparkle.

For the Clear coat I used their USC01 Show Klear.

I love the contrast from the normal Fractal Design colors, in this case the Brandywine is so unique. It has some sort of effect on me, I like it quite a lot, but... It isn't what I see at all as a "normal" case color.
