Hey guys, For a few months I've been attempting a build from some old spare parts laying around, basically so me and my other half no longer have to fight over the PC. Long story short is the PC stopped working, entirely after a motherboard replacement, but luckily I have some semi-decent hardware coming my way in a few days. All I have to do is provide a CPU. Housing all of this is a second hand CM Storm Scout, which was donated to me by a friend. The only problem is that it has a terrible paint job. I'm not talking about a bad colour (it's red), but it's the way it's been painted. It looks like the case was partly disassembled, then simply spray painted - no primer... no lacquer... and only one coat by the looks of things. Although I don't actually like the case that much (it looks a bit naff and cable management is actually pretty poor), I will be taking this case to the I-Series SpringLAN in Telford this march, so I want it to be at least a bit presentable. The plan is to take all of that red paint off and generally tidy up the case. What I need to know is will it be a case of just roughing up the crappy paint and going over it, or sanding it all off and starting again? Anyone with any experience in this? Ideally I'd like to just leave the whole thing in some sort of solution and take the whole lot off. EDIT:: This is starting to become a project log now, so changed the title.
