My System Specs


Welcome to HWC! Good job overall for your first time for sure. And I love the creative use of materials.

A few tips:

+1 for wet sanding for a cleaner paint finish

One of the easiest ways to prevent paint pooling and dripping with spray paint is to keep your can a little bit further from the case when spraying. Two lighter coats > one heavy coat IMO

Lightly sanding the area before spraying helps prevent running as well (also good for the life of the paint since it adheres better)

Electrical tape was a good substitute for u-trim, but measuring and cutting a fitted amount keeps it a bit cleaner

The phrase "what *edit* worklog is complete without a cat?" should be changed to: "What worklog is complete without duct tape?"
