With all the modding complete on this project, it was time to start doing the most satisfying part of any mod: painting. Read Remco's conclusion to the Project Sinister case mod, and see how this 4-week-long mod looks when it's done and painted.
The color scheme I had selected for this mod was going to be a reflection of the nature of the project. For Sinister, I wanted colors that would be subtle and slightly unsettling. For this purpose I selected a gloss black automotive paint and powder black engine enamel. This combination of two contrasting blacks will provide both a strong visual continuation of the theme and, combined with the green ccfl, a powerful convergence of colors.
The first part of any painting project is, of course, to tear down. I had to disassemble the mod, taking apart every piece for painting. This didnít take overlong to complete, and once the components were broken down, I separated them into two piles: those being painted gloss black and those being painted flat black.
Once these parts were laid out and separated it was time to start painting. Whenever youíre going to paint anything, be sure to put them in a well-ventilated area because the fumes are toxic and can cause respiratory damage. Thankfully I have a fully functioning paint booth at my shop for me to paint in. For those not as fortunate as myself, be sure to find a well ventilated area to paint in. Outdoors is a good choice to allow the paint to cure, preferably in the sunlight. For this project I am using automotive paints which cure and harden faster in sunlight. The ultra violet rays of the sun accelerate the curing process and make your parts dry sooner. Try to avoid putting them in a windy area as the dust particles in the air will settle on the components and get into the paint finish.
