    Default Painting inside of a case.

    Ok, i know one guy on here as painted the inside of his case cause i saw the pics on the album tab. My question is has anyone gotten nice results from do it your self case paints. I would like to do this as well and my frist though was to strip the case down and take it to a local paint and body shop and see if i could get it added to the car paint bay, lol.

    Just wondering what products would be good for this, such as just some hobby shop type paints, or even hardware store spray paint.

    Nice job on that case "JamesJ"

    I would say stay away from automotive paints, they are usually thicker and require more coats as well as a coat of clear to protect the paint. Stripping it down is a good idea, one of my friends took some of his parts to a sand blaster and had the factory paint taken off that way to have a nice clean slate to repaint. I decided not to do that on my case, i have an old server tower. I started with a basic flat black paint from walmart, then used rustoleum hammered spray paint for effect. Some of the paint had chipped off, but only where the case door slides (it is an old case and doesnt fit together very well, i also dropped it while i was working on it) but i was able to touch it.

    I prefer Krylon paint much more then rustoleum, mostly for the fact rustoleum takes forever to dry, but basic spray paint will due the job. Just make sure to clean off the old paint as well as possible. Try not to put finger oil on the bare metal. Try to paint in a warm well ventilated area.

    ill work on getting some pictures up, just signed up to the forum.
