Question What kind of paint works best?

I love to paint stuff and Daniel's been after me for years to coat over those ugly putty colored plastic and steel towers.

And now here's a place to get advice on what paints work best!

Would prefer low toxicity, and non-aerosol. What do you guys have to recommend? (available in the US) Tks.

Phiber.... for your lian-li aluminum case there.... Http://www.jinco.com has hot swap SCSI aluminum drive shuttles. (NOT CHEAP. But neither was that case.. ) I have seen silver keyboards and mice, and silver burners on ebay, also.. The drive shuttles come in wide and SCA. (Go for SCA, they are cheaper on ebay, and you can always use adapters, and hook them to a U2W controller.

I am waiting for this case to come in, so I can put 6 elcheapo white plastic non-hotswap shulltes under the door. (Yes, it will be windowed to death, and have 4 120mm panaflow fans.) You can find it at the link above also. They just dropped the price on it. It's only $65 with a 300w P4 ready PSU, and two case fans. (Anything with wheels and a door is worth $65)

That case up there can be set up for 6 5¼'s under the door, or 3 can be swapped for 3½'s allowing you to use full length cards in the upper slots. There's one hidden 5¼" bay, under the seam for the door.

Just to tell you what I used. I actually used Rustolium, (spelling?)

It was somewhat on the cheap and plenty of colors to choose from. Unfortunatly it does not meet your criteria for the non-aerosol. And I imagine the toxic level is a little high. but the finish is grand. And durable. I actually baked some parts in the oven to harden the finish after they had dried for a while outside.............

Thanks, Samyouknow.

Appreciate your advice on Rustoleum's paints. BUT.....I think I'll skip the added noxious fumes from oven curing!

People used to eat out of lead bowls and drink out of lead cups and nothing happened to them Well, at least the effects didn't kick in until they were like 65-70. Rustoleum isn't that bad for you. Now some of those acrylics or laqeurs will kill you if you breath them for more than a minute. That's why make a gas mask.

Well, it's not for everyone to try. It actually was not bad at all. I waited a few hours after painting b4 putting it in the oven. Just to speed it up a bit. BTW, this paint dries nicely if done in thin coats...........

And some ancients used white lead pigment in facial cosmetics. Vanity was about the only sign of brain function remaining before they succeeded in killing themselves!

Luckily I learned some good lessons early on.

A co-worker who went unprotected for years of exposure to heavy metals, solvents, asbestos, etc. has suffered multiple strokes and nearly passes out at the SIGHT of a parts cleaning tank! But thank god he still lives to walk "funny" and talk "funny" - his tales of warning.

I really messed MYSELF up one day. Welding seams inside a big stainless steel box, inadequate ventilation. After only about 5 minutes my blood pressure dropped way low, heart went racing. It was 2 days before I was able to stand up and take my first good, full breath without spasming out.

After that, I decided I COULD LIVE with those long lasting dents my respirator makes in my face (see portrait to left).

Well I'm pretty far off the point now........which is.....
I appreciate you guys replying with tips for my project.

And I do hope you'll KEEP YOUR HEADS out of the clouds, too

I'd use Dupont Imron, but you probably wouldn't seeing as it requires a real paint gun and air compressor, and it's very very toxic! You can dip a cotton ball in the reducer, and throw it in a 5 gallon bucket with a rat, and put the lid on the bucket, the rat will be stone dead inside of 5 minutes. But as long as it sprays on good I'll continue to use it.

Sorry to so directly pimp the site here, but if guys want to, feel free to submit your case mods to casemod@bluesmoke.net.

If you've already sent in your case mod (and wondering why the h*ck I haven't posted it ), I am busy redesigning the gallery to be fully searchable.
