What kind of paint did you use for the top panel, and what was your process?
Every time I re-read this thread, I always have to remind myself that the NSK1380 does not
come like that out-of-the-box! Your paint job looks so professional that I'm fooled every time. It's always a surprise to see the case with the stock grayish top. It's not nearly as pretty as yours.
Sorry for the very late answer but I have been extremely busy the last months.
Its painted with Black Motip Acrylic paint. Normally used for car parts.
I washed the lid with some normal dishwashing soap. Then dried it. Afterwards I wiped the lid with a lint-free cloth with Isopropyl alcohol on it.
Then... Grey primer once. Then 3 layers of Black paint.
BTW the original color of the lid is not grayish if you ask me. Its nicotineish.
Your case looks awesome but how do you turn on your computer if you covered up the power button?
In the first post on the third picture you'll see the power button hanging out the back of the case.
