Default Lian Li Armorsuit PC-P80, "Mirror Black" paint

We just finished this Black enamel paint job on the Lian Li Armorsuit PC-P80. I covered the workbench table with plush towels and placed myself in a zen state during it's assembly, so I didn't scratch anything. The PC-P80 is still impressive in it's factory Black anodized aluminum finish, but even more stunning in enamel paint. It also attracts dust like a magnet. The 5.25 bays were the most time consuming pieces to prep and paint, because of the tiny ventilation holes.







Most time consuming pieces to prep/paint, 5.25 bay covers

ehhh, maybe a lambo yellow case would be nice especialy with the silver stone. i still think you should make a memorial day case, and then you could compete with orange county choppers.

Out of sheer curiosity, what does a paint job like this run?
A total ballpark figure would be just dandy.

I'll pass on a gaudy patriotic case.

Give me a Murdered out Silverstone or Lian-Li.

Matte black powdercoat all around.

Tinted window.

With some strobes inside for good measure.
