H440 Spray Paint Question

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'm going to be spray painting certain sections of the H440 so it matches my build. However I've never sprayed a case before so was wondering:

a. Will I need to sand the case down before hand or can I spray straight over its matte black finish?

b. Will I need to apply self-etching primer to the case? 

Kind Regards,


Looking at an inverted white-black design.

You always prep surface for primer coat, unless you want your paint to rub / chip off... You don't want that, Do you?!

I use Medium Grit Red Scotchbrite Pad, and clean surface with Tack Cloth, before applying Primer coat, than Color coat... 

Self-Etching Primer isn't necessary, but it does offer the best adhesion and dries quickest...I like SEM brand, cause it's the BEST, but it's VERY Toxic... Apply it outside with filtered respirator mask
