there's a few guides on ocn, just look it up on google, i'm to lazy to search
|satin is the way to go. just remember to take ur time. an abrasive primer, then a normal primer, then the satin, and finally a clear. sanding after every step except abrasive primer and moving to a higher grit sand paper every time. it will look awesome guaranteed if you do it slow.|

I use the Automotive paint at Advance Auto parts and if you get the dark bumper coat, that stuff goes on so easy that anyone will look like a pro. If you want to get crazy. Get the bright red Brake Caliper paint. That would light up the inside of that antec case big time.

Use satin black like the other members mentioned. It is single stage paint most times you will use. Which should not be clear coated. Check out my project below, and the quick guide for interior tips. I put pictures here to show what my project looked like if you did the satin black. Hope this gives you a idea. Any further inquires just give a shout.
