Well that's certainly a neat trick. Something tells me you've done this before...

Thanks for staying tuned guys!

The power switch bay all taped up, ready for prep and paint. Now I just need to decide what paint color I will do.


Taping off the inside wall of the side panels from over spray.

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.

Red arrow shows location of one of the 4, plastic tabs



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.

The color sample book of the Paint Gods, HOUSE OF KOLOR



Staying faithful to the Maple Leaf tied into design, I decided on Candy Apple Red.




This mini "skull" was painted with the Candy Apple Red..... Imagine the Obsidian painted this color!
