Hey guys planning on painting my haf932 interior matte black also. Just wondering, since it's the interior would i have to sand it? If so which sand paper to use? Can i just use the self etching primer, maybe 2 coats and then put the black matte finish coats as much as needed? I just don't want it to flake and scratch easily when installing and moving around in the case. Please let me know

no sanding i would just use the self etching primer and when your done painting it the longer you let the paint cure the lass chance you have of paint chipping off

I plan on doing the same thing to my haf932. I was thinking maybe a glossy black but with cathodes it would reflect too much. Maybe ill go with a metallic black though, not sure

ok i checked out canadian tire and asked the sales guy about self etching primer, he didn't know what i was talking about. I tried looking for it myself but couldn't find it myself, any specific brand and where can i get it? Maybe Rona or homedepot?

Duplicolor has it and Canadian Tire carries Duplicolor but maybe they don't carry the primer.
