I still personally don't like doing business with people who present themselves so poorly on their postings. The only way people can judge you online is by what you write IMO.

Well true the op should simply go to a reputable shop. For powder-coating a case it should average around $50.

Wow. $400 is insanely expensive. For my first case I payed ~ $150, second $200, third $250. And each job was worse than the last, and all done by the same people

Needless to say I know longer get Powdercoating done.

Powder coating involves giving the item to be charged a electrical charge, then spraying it with a powder that is of the opposite charge so it sticks on the item. This is then usually baked, so that the powder solidifies on the object. it is very good for covering objects, even ones of weird shapes and angles. And the final product is fairly rugged.

Hey guys,

after looking at some dude's video ; YouTube - Gaming PC Build and Paint Mod (you can see what he used @ 2:01)

I've seen he used this kind of paint to paint his case, any of you know if it is actually good to paint a case with that? Could it melt or go crap due to heat or electricity....oO

Dupli-Colour Truck, Van & SUV Paint | Canadian Tire

So if I was to do it by myself, what else would be needed? I'd like black and green, with the same pattern he did (black and red tho...)

Thanks in advance!
