Hey guys,

I've been wanting to mod my CM storm Sniper.. I would like to spray paint the C and M of the CM STORM logo on the side panel mesh of my case. Id like to use regular white spray paint. I've tried the mod on paper and stuck it and it looked nice.. My question is if a do make a template and spray paint, can it spread around.

Thanks in advanced, and here are some close ups of the mesh it self.

Make sure the template is secure, keep it flat til it dries, don't over spray and it should be fine.

I would be worried about prep, but if its not going to be handled a bunch it should be fine. Trying to think how you could prep/sand the area you want to paint for better adhesion, but can't think of anything (other than sanding with the template on, hitting it with compressed air, then painting).

Here is the "testing phase"






Also what would you guys suggest I use for the template, would paper be good enough?

That looks like the only way to me too.

Use construction paper with green or purple masking tape. After applying your mask scuff the metal lightly with sandpaper and wipe off with a alcohol based cleaner and allow to dry. Multiple thin coats until the desired color consistency is achieved, allow to dry before handling.

On all the case painting I have done (which is limited :laugh:), I have actually used automotive brake caliper paint. I had it readily available from doing some other auto work and its actually works very well- very durable stuff.
