Haha yeah, sorry guys, I just copied it from OCN, posting all those links again was gonna take forever.
The electrical tape is just temporary will I can get a better replacement.
And the DVD drive is just normal, there just isn't any pics without the mesh cover removed.

But yeah, the tremclad paint worked really well for not any preparation.
Thanks for all the comments !

Awesome job, so Tremclad sticks well? I used Krylon flat and the paint scratches easily, I hate my case to the point of wishing to throw it out, buy a new one and repaint just for the sake doing it right

@artistpavel: did you use primer as a undercoat? I use flat Krylon too but I primed my surfaces first (2 coats). Sticks pretty well. If you can't find self etching primer, Stix or Zinsser Bulleseye works well for primer too. Also remember paint takes time to cure. If the paint hasn't had time to cure it can get nicked or scratched easily. I leave the newly painted case alone to cure for 2 weeks before I start putting anything in it. Actually ,1 week should be enough but the longer the better.

Yeah, the tremclad paint worked great.
I recommend it.
I'm just gonna apply some lacquer on it once I get a chance to make it tougher.
