Make sure you shop around. When I did the aluminum guts from my Cosmos S, I got quotes ranging from $60 to $150. The $60 dollar place did a really good job.

Well, there was only one place I could take it to in my city (Saskatoon). They charged me $125(tax, labour, hole plugs, prep included) to do my TJ07. Although, I think SugarJ said his TJ07 was only $50...

It was, because Charles from Murdermods did it for me along with a bunch of his stuff, seeing as I was buying a bunch of parts from him. It wasn't a full case though, just the interior parts.

I think it will be tough to find a lot of powdercoaters in Malta, though I could be wrong. A fair price to do a complete mid tower would be $125-150, I'd think.

Post powder coat

The case in question is an nzxt nemesis which is fairly small and i am willing to do all the prep work

My budget is between 100-120 euro

does some one has any experiences on chrome or nickel plating prices cos i was thinking about chroming the HDD rack /drive rack / I/O shield part (where all the expansions and mother board outputs go)
and front panel piece.
