About 4 years ago, I went and got paint mixed up into a spray can, it was Atomic Orange found on Corvette. It cost me about $30.00 to have it made up. I also recommend if you haven't you might want to pick up a spray can of clear.
When it's outside, all you see is the metallic flake. Once I have the panels done, I will take some shots outside.

I was told $35 plus tax for custom colors, which made it around $40 each 12 oz can. And I do plan to clear coat once I'm finished painting color. I probably should have just borrowed my dad's airless gun and bought a pint of Copperhead, but it's a bugger to clean up after and I don't have a lot of room to spray in the garage right now.

The R4E is 10.7 inches from the top of the case to the bottom of the board. I'm measuring about 11 5/8ths to the top of the rad right now, leaving me 3/4 of an inch to fit some right angle SATA cables in. I'm going to look for some pancake or flat head screws as the ones I have in there have a really large domed head. I'm really hoping it will fit, it would be a shame to have to swap it out for a lesser board.

I haven't started cutting yet. I just popped the front and top back on to see how it looked. I will be taking out 1 or 2 drivebays from the bottom. That will leave me room for a double bay res/pump and my HDD cage. Pics will come as I have time to work on it. Not until next weekend, probably.
