Project: Red Iron (Build Log – Part 2)

Spray painting continued

One of the most unsightly hardware components in Project: Red Iron has to be the Cooler Master V650 power supply. Not that it looks like a mess, but rather it takes up a large space inside the Elite 110. So with that in mind, I wanted to paint the V650. To be honest, I was a little apprehensive with fiddly with a PSU, so I finally opted not to try and take the cover off, but to color it in an another fashion.


So I got a permanent gold marker from my local stationary shop, and this was used to painstakingly color in the grills of the V650.



This turned out not too bad at all. Spray painting these grills without removing the cover would have meant getting the spray paint all over the insides of the V650.


The grills were then masked off, ready for some primer and some colored spray paint.


Primer goes on.


Lots of primer bubbles when it dried, which required a quick sanding down before the color went on.


Slapping on the color!
