Default Interior Paint Colour for Haf 932?

What goes good with a black/red trim?
Should i just paint it black?

Also what paint/process would you suggest for painting on HAF932's tough steel?

My System Specs

Default

2-3 coats of flat or semi-gloss black. I used a Tremclad spray bomb on my 900.

Sorry I didn't respond to your PM. This computer I am on is a P2 266 laptop with 96mb of ram and chokes so often.

Basically remove all any parts you can from the case.. Wipe the case down.. Get a can of self etching primer .. use light coats to cover entire inside of case once dry use some steel wool to smooth it out then just put light layers of whatever color you want on.

The 690 I did probably had 6 or 7 coats of paint.

Dry to the touch.

Most spray paint is dry to the touch within 15-30 minutes depending on ambient temperature.

If you want to sand, I say let the paint cure for more then 30mins. Or else when you sand it can start to peel and thats a mess to cover up later.
