    Painting my case: how do I stop paint from scratching off?

    i let it dry outside in the sun for 2 days on primer but only waited about a day with the paint. Anyway, by $30 i meant 3 cans of $10.. The primer was a ripoff, but people where stressing it must be self etch and they only had one at ct. It was grey self etch primer $16

    Sleeve size question

    Just wondering, for 3/4 od tubing should i get the 1/4" - 3/4" sleeve? might be a very tight fit, or should i get the 1/2" - 1 1/4" Also for heatshrink, which size to get? For fans its 1/4 sleeving? is it 1/8 for single cable sleeving. Which heatshrink to get for single cable?
