:P here we go

u c? nice and shiny 8)

btw, the stripes on the front, in my opinion, look like 1337 tears, so they're there to stay 8), and those stripes wth the beige drives don't look so ugly. The drives simply emphasise the fact that it's the top of the comp :!: like a head on a body, u know?

Thats sweet. I'm going to have to try that this summer w/ my new case. Everyone has their own style w/ drives. Personally I prefer stealthed, but either way its a sweet paint job.

This is fresh example of stealth dives. When drives r closed it looks like there is no drives at all.

Well if you dont do all the sanding its going to be a little "bumpy" You wont really be able to notice it unless you look closely. Now that mirror finish, from what i understand cant be achieved unless its completely flat, no little bumps. I painted mine without sanding and its a little shinny, but nothing compared to an@rchys. I even used clear coat and waxed it.

your welcome! Thanks everyone for your compliments! yeap, I have to agree with rutger, it has to be really flat for it to be extra-shiny. I didn't use any clearcoat. Notice the handle on the top of my case :P

thx man! I guess I was lucky with the handle, cause I just whacked it in the middle. I didn't really know if the PSU would fit :? Anyways, it all worked
