    A Painting Question

    This has probably been asked before but i couldn't find it so.....

    I want to paint my case a dull black. Much like the finish that comes on a generic case. More than likely i will sand it down so it's smooth also. All the articles about painting i have seen use high gloss shiney(sp?) paint.

    My question is: does anyone know of a paint that can help me achieve this finish?

    thanks in advance.

    Hmm, you'd probably want to use spray paint rather then a brush.

    At least that's what I would use, but why not just buy a new case? There's plenty of sweet looking black ones out there.

    Ok man you want to use flat black paint(spray of course) like krylon. dont use a clearcoat on your paint job just use a sealer. If you use automotive paint (base coat/clearcoat) the color is dull until you spray the clear so you could do that and just seal the color(not clear it). Hope this helps out some if not PM me..
