I have a complete Automotive Sprayer setup that is my dads (ive painted a few cars which helps too) But how much paint do you think ill need for an Antec 1030 case? 1/4 quart or so?

A pint for 2 good coats of single stage with a little left over. Shoot a little pearl, that would look pretty cool strolling into the lan party.

I have seen some cases at http://bunteseiten.com/northward.htm , which are painted and it seems they use a hell of a lot of paint, but its looking good, especially the Lian-Li cases.

i like car paint.

Wal-Mart!!

but if you're using a sprayer, just call a auto-parts store and ask em' who sells paint... see what they say.

check the phone book and call a few places to check out prices.

chances are you'll get 2 diff. pints for $10 or so?


oh, "how much" meaning paintwise not cost...

well, i can paint a case adequately with a can of spray paint, so i'd think you won't need much at all.

but if i were you, i'd go for as many layers as possible. it makes for a much nicer finish.

but if yer uncle is a painter, he'd know this already and probly hook you up tight.
