Mnpctech painter, Brad Galvin lays down his version of realistic flames on a LianLi PC-7plus. Brad's process involves 12 layers of color. These layers give the flames depth, looking almost three dimensional. This is a very long process, but with the final pay off!

The case will be clearcoated with a polyurethane clear, then wetsanded and buffed to an automotive grade hi-gloss finish.

Lian Li PC-7plus.

Thanks guys!

After clearcoat. The clearcoat still needs to be wetsanded and buffed.

btw: I'll be selling the case for $600 after it's finished... LianLi PC 7 plus

Thank you HELLSPAWN!

We're doing more of these cases. It's a new LianLi PC-7 plus aluminum midtower ($90 from newegg). $600 with real fire custom paint + shipping. That sounds like a lot of money, but consider taking your case to a local custom bike/car painter for a quote, you'll likely pay double for something this good. Brads been painting professionally for 14 years. He applies 12 layers of "House of Kolor" paints. Don't let the video I posted fool you, it's actually a very long painting process. The paint is clearcoated with PPG polyurethane clear, wetsanded and buffed out. You're getting a true automotive grade custom finish with case for $600.
