Damn, I'm confused now lol, has Saint19 got an alt?
for a good flat matte finish, sand what you can reach,
not too heavily on the plastic, just enough to key the surface then rattlecans from about 10", light sweeps and give it time to dry well before the next pass,
it helps if you can disassemble at least a part of the case, drilled rivets (3mm bit) are easily replaced with flathead drive screws, just dont overtighten them
and the more time you take over it, the better,
a strong longlasting finish takes work and patience
pixx when your done mate, before and after if you can
The lightbar was just a mod from bits I had in the drawer of Doom, its kinda cool though,
But yes, kept dust-free a mattblack case is awesomely cleanlooking,
Look forward to the progress reports :-)
Couldn't tell you the exact grade, its whatever I have in my shed hehe,
but yes its just a medium sort, not coarse grade, and definately not too fine either
go easy on plastic as its easy to put a big scratch in if your not careful then it shows through if you dont have enough layers of paint over it,
practice is the key
Haven't had the chance to get to the case modding, been upgrading the parts in the tower...
I'm going to be getting a Dremel as well, so I can cut what holes I may need, for fans or plexiglas or whatnot.
Planning to deck mine out with a stylized version of the 'Inix' name I use, cut through the metal, so the LEDs shine through the panel...Mine doesn't have a window, just some vents and a ported fan/exhaust.
I will update, as soon as I'm done adding new parts to my rig...
Looking nicer already man
I'll let you finish then upset you by going over cable management hehe
Turn your hard drive around 180', so the cables feed through from the front of the case, you'll have to either lift or lower it to avoid getting strimmed by your front fans
You already have plans to drill/dremel holes for modding though so I'll ease off for now,
window mods can be simple or as complex as you want to make it and textured paint should be fine, mines satin finish but still feels a little rough to the touch, adds to the image I reckon
