I'm going to paint the inside of my Coolermaster HAF 932 later this week when the weather is nicer outside and I have questions. After I'm done sanding down the inside of the case and wipe it, how many coats should I of primer should I use and how long should I wait between each coat to apply the next coat? And when I'm finished with the primer coat how long should I wait before I apply the black coat and once again how many coats and how long should I wait between each coat for the black color?
Yeah I'm definitely not letting it dry for a day before the color coat, I can't just sit in my room all day without a computer gawking at my TV like it just punched my grandmother. Would a couple of hours do between the two coats?
I read the back of the can and it said the minimum is 50F. It's going to be in the mid 40's so it shouldn't make much of a difference. When I'm done with each coat I'll bring it inside the house to let each coat dry. Hopefully the difference in temperature from the house and outside won't cause any problems for the paint.
Also, when I'm finished painting the case entirely how long should I wait to reconstruct it (all the plastic pieces and hardware) so that the paint won't get damaged and chip off? The can says dry to the touch in 20 minutes, dry to handle in an hour, and completely dry within 24 hours.
If you want to do this right, don't rush it. The difference between 40F and 50F may not seem like a big deal, but consider the difference between 33F and 31F and what it does to water.
Perhaps you should do it in a well-ventilated room inside the whole time.
Would the basement with the cellar door open work? The door being open for ventilation but being inside for the warm temperature and not having to worry about small rain drops or other elements interfering with the paint. Oh and before I forget, when I sand the inside of the case, what should I wipe it off with?
