What color should I get the aluminum on my Antec P180 powder coated? I was thinking of something like a metallic candy apple red, or something along thoes lines... So what color do you guys think would look really nice?

Oh yah, do you think I should get it powder coated or painted by an auto body shop? I heard that powder coating is tougher and more scratch resistant.

EDIT: I can't seem to get the aluminum panels apart from the plastic. They seem to be glued on.

yea, get a nice green. id go to a body shop and have em paint it a rich green color with some lime green stripes down the middle on top.

if you really have some cash for it, get some chrome illusion paint and do it like that. when the light hits it at diff angles, it looks awesome.

I was actually thinking a blue color now.. because the lights on the case are blue, so it would match.

NVidia Green (#CCFF00) on the outside and Chrome on the inside. That'd be sweet! :thumbsup:
