    Ok as with most of my posts... the title says all...
    I have a case, I want the inside black... what paint ot use?... spray, brush
    (im not going to send it into a shop to get anodised lol)

    My case (look at my specs) is a Coolermaster Cosmos S..... its wicked but will be nicer in black.
    I dont want to spray something on that will flake off or sit badly and look crap...
    Chances are any homemade recipe for painting it at home will look bad... i just want to know if perhaps theres a miracle product out there that will do the job well ;)

    thanks pete... though i was kinda hoping for a more all in one answer like... this paint... this tin, this brush (google it, buy it...sorted hehehe)... then that physical application (homemade of course)....

    im not looking for a shit finish , more like a slick glossy finished look...
    anyways ill check out those posts tomorrow, im in need of sleep here in the smelly UK ;)

    I used to spray cars for a living and I was trained to layer the "coats" rather than chuck on a couple thick one's. Basically this means to a n00B that if you want to do a "good" job you will get a sore hand and aching wrist and your thumb and forefinger will not let you smoke for about a week, but you'll have a shinier mirror finish to look at!

    I just bought a can of black and took my time spaying it it I think it looks good. There was also a removable plate for the mobo that I took out and painted yellow.
