    Default The best paint for inside the computer case?

    I'm interested in painting the inside of my Lian Li mid tower black (it is silver atm) what is the best paint to match the black bezel coating from the outside and what steps do I do to get quality finish?

    If you want true quality in a paint job, consider taking it to a buddy at a body shop. Automotive paints and finishes are popular with modding circles and give an exceptional end product. As for matching the color, I'll leave that to someone who may be more knowledgable on the topic than myself.

    If you want a good quality finish, be prepared to put hpours and hours of work into it. A ton of wet sanding. I painted my Antec 900 metallic red, both inside and out, and it looks awesome...definitely worth the effort.

    I used Dupli-Color spray paints and primers from any auto store. I also used 400, 600, 800, 1000, and 1500 grit sand papers. i found this guide on google and it worked out pretty good...just make sure u get the correct paint, primer, and clear coat:

    I'll post pics of my case when i get home. Also, another thing i was thinkin about doing instead of painting the inside was lining the inside of the case with mirror. Advanced Auto and problem all other auto stores sell this mirror material that comes in sheets that literally cost a few dollars. I think a case lined with mirror would look pretty awesome and unique.
