    Case Painting

    What Kind Of Paint should I use on my 3dcool.com Tornado 1000 Case. I want to paint it black, but I don't know what kind to use. Spray paint?

    Also, where can I find a black keyboard and, Optical(infraed) mouse, it doesn't have to be wireless.

    For the keyboard just rip it apart and paint the thing While your at it you can also give the keyboard and the keys a nice cleaning
    So softly , so perfect , seemingly sleepingly
    But for you , sleep , forever will do
    Wish only to fight the urge
    Beaten senselessly for your basic need
    Sunken eyes around me ,
    sunken spirits is what I see
    Children , old beyond their day

    Maximum PC has a good guide for painting. I used Krylon primer, spray paint and clear coat when I painted my case. It's all in the preparation, the smoother you get the case from the start, the better the paint will lay on.

    tip for painting a case

    after u gently sand down the factory coat, 2 coats of primer works best, but word of caution, make sure paint is really dry before u apply clear coat, i used a bright chrome metallic, which i thought was dry(dry to the touch anyway,lol) however when applying the clear coat, i saw some breaking up in a few spots of the consistency of the metal particles, in others words- i blew a few days painting in 1 shot lol, but it was winter, wished i had waited till summer, with black shouldnt be a problem, next one i do i am going to use a mystic or candied paint which takes several layers of applications. Now that i am finished i am going to put up a few pics soon, its not as good as most, but my 1st.
