Like the title says. It's a HAF 932 case that I spraypainted the inside black. It's decent quality and I will be putting another coat as well as clearcoat to keep it clean. It's in pretty good shape, less than a year old. I can add cold cathodes to it as well.

Sounds like you're trying to sell your case here, can't do that. Sorry.

Like the title says, I want a price. I'm not trying to sell it here. I described what it has and can have and how that will factor in a price. I want a number that tells me how much I could get from selling it to someobody on another site. K?

Depends on the paint job. A nice paint job would probably add $20 over the price you could get from Newegg for the same case. A bad paint job will subtract $50 from the original price.

The paint job is not perfect but pretty good. It's all the same shade-no part is darker or brighter than the other. Some spots I missed, which I will get in a touch up before I clear coat it. Without a paint job what would the case sell for? $75?

$100 shipped probably. With a paint job, detailed pics would be a must for an accurate appraisal.

I will get pictures as soon as I can. As my computer case is still needs to be completely finished I don't have my desktop running.

Sorry, just sounded like a sale post :oops:

Nice paint job, I would say 125 shipped for it. If you could sell it locally you could ask maybe 150 to 160 maybe. Good luck!

I am selling on Craigslist-never on eBay or shipped. I guess I am getting to get (hopefully) more than I thought. Thank you.

Is clearcoat necessary? If so I'm still wondering if I need to prep the paint or just to spray over it. Like wetsanding or anything.

well, I'm not seeing any obvious blemishes in the paint job, so I don't think that will hurt the case's value. Just retouch the paint job and clear coat it for durability, and you can sell it for around $130.
