    Most cases are held together with pop rivets. You take them apart by drilling out the center of the rivet from the outside. To put them back together you need new rivets and a pop rivets gun. Here's a link to read up on:

    Should give you enough details to get you going.

    And yes, you should lightly sand, then prime any bare metal before you paint it. Most paints will not stick to bare metal.

    The front panel looks nice, i don't usually like cases with a door completely across the drive bays, but that one looks ok.

    BTW, nice attempt on the paint job, i think if you sanded it down with the finest wet/dry paper you can get hold of, the polish it with T-cut or Mer polish and it'll be awsome!
