  1. Why don't you just tape that stuff off if you're worried about breaking it.
    I'm no expert but Tremclad or Krylon would be fine.
    Something with a rust inhibitor.
  2. true i can tape it but would make it much easier not having to worry about it

    do i need a primer? or can i just wipe it down and paint or is that a special kind
  3. If the case is bare medal you will need to primer it. Make sure you sand the case first with some 300 grit to rough it up for the paint to stick to.
  4. oo i got the power switch out safetly the reset just wont budge lol

    grr dont have a sander :( this is just inside of that matters :(
  5. you dont need a sander just some sand paper. If you don't rough the surface up it will not stick.
