Yeah i took a while to make sure the hard disk was not going to be in the way of any screw holes, then when i added the 80mm fan i had to move it again But a bit of dremmel work later it was fine, and not blocking screw holes either.
Ive sanded it down with 400 wet and dry now. so its back to a matt finish ready for its final coat of paint. I know the can says i can just spray over it again if i let it dry for 24 hours. but i prefer to sand it back a little just so the gloss finish is gone and im sure it has a good key then sprey it again.
I go on the re-coat after 30mins and before 40 mins or wait 24hours and sand back then do it theory, "that may well just be my very own theory i made up out of no where but thats how i do it biggrin.gif

ok any way for any one wondering about how much paint it needs..
The white parts id recomend 600ml atleast of paint
The black parts are easily done with 150ml.
and to primer the whole lot 400ml should be enough..
And its better to have to much paint and not need it than not to have enough and need more.
Wish i had read similar about paint beore i started lol..
Seriously 150ml is no where near enough
