    Default Can I use spray paint?

    I was wanting to recolour my C64C to make it have the same colour scheme as the C16 (As I think that looks good) but I wanted to know if it was ok to use spray paints or is it better to use another from of painting the case?

    Plastikote. Just clean the case first of grease and grime. Don't try to apply too much at once. Build up the coats. Will look great! ��

    I use spray painting in matt color (unless you want your case to shine), the one for car bumpers, and the results are impressive.
    You are standing at the end of a road before a small brick building. Around
    you is a forest. A small stream flows out of the building and down a gully.

    I recently bought an Amiga 500+.
    For a bad retrobright the cosmetic state was painful.

    This spray paint adds a metallic look.

    And this is the final result.

    I gave several layers of paint to the upper case so as not to see the stains.

    Drying the paint with the sun of Spain in summer.
