Ok...

1) What kind of paint to I use to color the drive bays?

ex. Image

2) When modding the top of the case for air holes, I'm putting 2 120MM fans up there...one where the PSU is and 1 in the open area between the PSU and drives = heat goes up ^ PSU heat goes up to top and stays...hence causing problems...120MM fan blows air out...same with the other fan...heat go up ^^^...now the problem is...do I put the fans inside the case or outside/on top of the case?

3) If I paint the drives, what do I use?...spraypaint or acrylic?

I recomend a good high quality spraypaint and a bit of practice on an old case for case paint..... as well as on your drive bays.....
To get a better finish go out and buy the TESTORS propellant powered airbrush kit abot $25 USD and some modelpaints and go that route...I have seen some great paintjjobs achieved with that cheap little kit...


If you want the whole frame truly pimped out take it to a chrome shop and have them 50 minute nickle dip and minute dip chrome your frame.... it should cost about $40.00 USD.... I am going to get mine done tomorrow but only parts of it and the rest I am going to airbrush.......

Hope that helps

for 2.)
I dont think it matters which side of the case it goes on...(top, bottom)...i'd put in on the inside, it'd look better...probobly better performance too, since its on the inside sucking air in....
