    Case painting?

    Ive asked on a number of forums but no one can give me a proper answer usually just tell me to crack out the spray paints. Im not artistic and i dont fancy spending £150+ on a case only to ruin it.

    Im looking for either british dpm camo or desert dpm camo design, does anyone know of anywhere in the UK where i can send my case off to get sprayed, i live in a relatively small town and there are no paint shops so my only option is to send a case away.

    I did find one kustompcs but its £235 just for spraying, i dont want to pay £400 for a sprayed case.

    The cheapest way would be diy though, if you had the time to mark out and spray.

    But the mod brothers forums would probably give you the know how of going about painting camo

    Re: Case painting?

    Well Bill doesn't generally paint cases himself, he knows a rather good painter, Brad Galvin, who mainly specialise in custom car and bike work.

    If you want it done professionally a place that does car resprays is probably you best bet.

    The cheapest option is get spray cans and do it yourself.
    You'll want Primer, base colour, additional camo colours and some clear lacquer to seal it all. (a couple of cans of each probably.
    You'll also need some wet&dry paper to prep the surface.

    Vinyl is actually a good option depending of the shape of the case, it can be simplier and less messy.
