yeah you may need to scuff it up with really fine sandpaper. if not, you should definitely prime it. actually i'd get some metal primer that you dont have to sand (there is a specific type for metal that requires no sanding but i cant remember it) and prime it first no doubt.

Got the case, partially disassembled it and painted the interior.

And the obligatory pics



even bigger box than my old aurora!



shiny




nicely packed



oOoOo XD I love it!





After paint!

Now, gotta let her dry and then its on to reassembly, transfer parts, make my delrin cover, and redo the water cooling loop.

Stay tuned!
