    I had a case here to do a project like that but my friend needed a case so I gave it to him. I'll get another one eventually.

    First angle is the only bit of daylight I see on my days off with my favourite rugby teams flag above my screen.

    Second angle shows the fan that points at the case which I only use during summer as the room is so small.

    Third angle shows my other favourite items besides my rig and motorbike. They are my guitar, graphics tablet, Oakley watch 9 ( 1 of 63 watches ) and of cause my blackberry

    Depends on the paint your using !

    Some work fine n dandy with no primer.

    do a small tester at the bottom of the case, somewhere it will be easy to clean off if it looks shit : ]

    I find car paint works a treat, hell if you have a poundland near you the car paint they sell works insanely well :laugh:


    Here's an example of poundland paint with no primer

    But as I said, do a tester first, it sticks to some metals better then others.

    Steel works great, Aluminium is a bit fussy.

    When I did mine I used 4 coats of primer. Got my stuff from B&Q. I have yet to put a clear coat on but will do when summer arrives as the paint has matured now on my case

    OK now while i was spraying the motherboard tray, i gust of wind blew something into it and it stuck to the paint and i panicked! I took a old rag and tried to wipe it out but it smeared it so i had to wait to let it dry then took a sand block and ruffed it back up. i resprayed it but that one spot looks alittle ruff.
