    Hey,
    I will be in the near future painting my case. I already know how to turn all of the metal into a very high gloss and make it look pimped out. But, how do I paint the plastic and make it high gloss? Do I just prime, sand then paint and sand (over and over)? Then use the rubbing compound to bring out the shine? Or is plastic different?

    Here is my case. The front is plastic. What about the grill on the front?

    Ya got to sand the plastic first with very fine grit sandpaper before the primer so that it has something to stick to but I'll see if I can find a guide or two to link for ya though I havn't seen on in some time now. :smokin:
