Install the o-ring loosely, and slowly tighten the screws. Once all four are started in the threads, push the o-ring in place using a flat screwdriver, or a small ruler. Just make sure you don't use an object that could cut the o-ring.

Also Enaberif mentionned to freeze the o-ring before installing it - looks like it makes it stick more into place. Next time I may try that.

Default Ready For Paint

managed to get this case apart and ready for paint. it actually came apart fairly easy,im not bleeding anyways
the case is not quite what i expected for the price,after building antec(well built,sturdy,can feel the value),the Tempest(mostly plastic and very light steel/aluminum)...but i own it now,so lets see what i can do to it. i have couple ideas..

how about compared to the Antec 900, if you've touched one. The interior is almost very similar.

No worries, they are lots of reviews on the case you have, and they are almost spot on, except for few minor issues, which I can't remember on my finger tips. Hopefully you won't experience any major or rather any issues with this case. I would always love to have a case like this but more full tower, bigger, but I have the Lian Li, I do like the upside down design, it is quite handy honestly..

Good Luck on yours Jay.

I'd try scuffing the interior gray with sandpaper before painting to promote adhesion. I just did my case last weekend and didn't do that, kinda regretting it now. The paint comes off very easily, at least Tremclad Flat Black anyway.
