Thanks Meddle

Question time, I'm about to apply a coat of clear paint on the parts that are already painted. But I'm not sure if I should sand the last layer of colour before I apply the clear coat, or just appy the clear coat over the last layer of colour without sanding. Is there anyone here that knows what gives the best result?

SAND IT!!!! specially if your looking for a nice clear mirror finish, Use minimum 600 grit but preferably 1200 grit water paper, wont take to much sanding, when you first start sanding with the water you will find the paper "grips" a bit more, once it goes nice and smooth and the paper slides easily.. move along..

But trust me on this.. sand it!! the finish is FAR better

Small update!

Sanding and painting is a time consuming business, so I'm a bit slow with updates recently. Good news is that I have completely taken the case apart and sanded most of the parts in preparation for painting. I've also finished painting a couple of parts:

Thanks alot guys, I'm really happy with the results myself, and it shows that good preparation really does make a difference I hope all goes well with the big panel for the right side, it's the biggest piece and the one I'm most likely to mess up..

And yet another paint update:

I'm done with the primer on all the frame and all the panels (minus the panel with the mobo, I still need to drill and cut in that.)
All parts were sanded to P1200 and then got their first layers of primer. After a day I sanded it it all to P1200 again and added the second layer of primer. After it dried I sanded it to P2000 and used a cleaner to get rid of all the fingerprints etc in preparation for paint:







Now all I need is some decent weather, it's been too windy/rainy to paint outside lately.

Yesterday I started rebuilding the frame:



Wired up the main powerconnector & On/Off switch. The blue cable is for the 7" touchscreen.
