Thank you

Anything you can remove instead of masking off, makes a custom paint job much more professional looking. If you decide to paint your Obsidian, you may or may not consider removing the panel release button and rod assembly.

To remove the button, you'll need to poke in 4, release tabs with a small screw driver from the inside of the case.

Remove the release button trim ring in the same manner

Then you can remove the 4, tiny black screws. The rod is attached to the front of the chassis in the same manner, but without the button assembly.

Each rod has one spring one the button side.

Store these springs and fasteners in a plastic bag so they don't get lost!

Obsidian chassis awaits sand blasting.
