So I want to paint my Lian Li case right?

Metallic orange, as bright as possible without losing the 'metallic' part. BUT I also really like the Lian Li trademark brushed aluminium finish, so I want to maintain that too.

I've done a bunch of searching and trawling and have come up with nothing useful, since all the painting guides seem to focus on getting your computer OHMEGAWD SHINY because you know, that's cool.

For completeness, my case is an A05B. Not that really matters because let's face it, they all look the same. Here's a picture linkture: http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g160/stormshadow3500/pc-a05b.jpg

Although mine has a couple of marks and a 'WWGFD' sticker on it.

well, if you want a brushed Al look, paint wont do that.

but if you want metallic fluro orange, car paint is the way to go.
super cheap -> car touch up paint.

might also want to consider vinyls

Hmm... translucent vinyl film might be an idea.

If you want to maintain the brushed looked then what you'll need to do is have your case anodized orange. You might need to have it de-anodized first, be warned the entire process might set you back a bit of money, but if a brushed orange case is what you want then that's the way to get it.

Dulux put a paint out called "Pearl effects" which when brushed on looks very much like brushed on aluminium. This is a water based interior paint and not very hard wearing. An alternitive would be to use a clear epoxy varnish with an orange tint, (most auto paint suppliers should be able to mix this up for you to what ever colour you want). You will still be able to see the scratches however, and will cost more than standard spray cans. Good luck, sounds cool.

if you want it very shiny go to a trusted and know painter so that you wont regret of paint your beautiful Lian Li.

or try a vinyl film.
