lol i know that feeling
coffee, eggs, bacon, beans and i'm so ready
you've got my wanting eggs and bacon but i have a long day and ill have to settle for coffee. Im dissembling the HAF 932 as we speak.
i only got the stuff to make it, still need to wake up hahaXD
but sounds good, any luck finding a normal sidepanel?
Don, I know he needs to do that for the better job, but not many people are as lazy as me.
i'm lazy too, would also only paint it, not do the rivet part, but if i had a spare case i would do it for fun and with no deadline
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.
OK ive got it took apart and about to go buy some paint! once i get back i will tape it up and start shooting a good coat!
remember to get some primer, and sand the thing down a bit before applying it, just my 2 cents
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
well i forgot the primer should i get some or will it be ok without it
Nice custom work on the stacker looks freakin awesome, is it in the gallery?
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 : ]
Can you reccomend some paint that works without primer... i see youre in UK... id like to give this a god with my cosmos S
No buddy, but thanks for the comment.
I find car paint works a treat, hell if you have a poundland near you the car paint they sell works insanely well
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
Goodjob kovoet looks really nice.
Well i went and bought a can of flat black primer and i have already shot a coat of that on it and im letting it dry right now. bout to start shooting the gloss black enamel.
Its already looking GREAT!!! will post more pictures soon
Can't wait, really... Black interior is the only thing that this case lacks IMO (real men do not need dust filters )
Can't wait to see it Brandon.
ok Here it is being prepped.
Here is the primer coat of flat black
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.
Looks great so far Brandon.
Looking good man, black looks good. Just the first coat!
how many coats does it need?
