My System Specs

Default powder coating

I am considering getting the chasis of my case powder coated. Has here done this before? What did it cost you? Any recommendations for companies in Calgary that do this?

I did the guts of my Cosmos S for $60 cash locally. I took it all apart myself, and riveted it back after too. You'll need about 80 rivets if I remember right (and it's your Cosmos you are talking about).

I've got 5 or 6 systems done. Ranged in price from $75 to $250. Tell the powder coater not to plug any holes. It will save a lot of money and look better.

Cool sounds good Ross. I have my case ripped apart this far... I'll never forgive myself if I don't paint this ugly assed cosmos S chassis.

And thanks to the rest of ya I wasn't sure how much it was gonna cost.
