Just got done painting my antec 300 I have few questions

The place where the PSU goes, I think there is extra paint idk i kind of see like maybe i put 10 coats just on that spot but every where else is good what should i do?

There are bubbles here and there, can I sand them later?

If I can sand it, is there another spray bottle i need to buy to reapply?

When can I sand? and when do I apply anything extra?

Thanks a lot guys!!!

I would wait at least a full 24 hours before doing anything.

You should be able to sand the bubbles away, not sure what you mean by needing another spray bottle.

Just be careful when you repaint it and take it SLOWLY and hold the can far away (you know you're doing it right when you feel like its too far away but you can very slightly see it going on)

Wait 24 hours and then sand. After sanding just give it a light coat or two.

Did you sand down the case before painting?

Yes I did. Alright sounds good.

One more question
Can I leave a fan running near the case so it drys by tomorrow noon.... Or is that a bad idea?

I WOULDN'T because it should be dry tomorrow.. Not amazingly dry but dry "enough" to handle.

I'm paranoid something will be blown into the paint and it'll dry there.. but thats just me.

Yes... believe me (speaking from experience)

Just because it looks dry doesn't mean it is.
