Whats a good quality paint that everyone uses for their cases? I'm getting sick of mine so I need to spruce it up alittle bit.

Do you have experience with spray painting? or are you just gonna slap on a brush?

only use airbrush or spraypaint for cases, but make sure to tape off all you dont want painted. If your wanting matte like you said, i like krylon. Duplicolor is good for glossy. Most case painters use auto paint, but krylon is stocked at walmart also.

Yea I was thinking of picking up a Purdy and going to town on my case. I use to tag for 7 years so I'm pretty good with spray cans. I just want to spray my MB tray black and leave the rest. See how that turns out and if it doesn't look good then I'll do the whole interior. I've been looking around locally to do anodizing too
