We just finished this Black enamel paint job on the Lian Li Armorsuit PC-P80. I covered the workbench table with plush towels and placed myself in a zen state during it's assembly, so I didn't scratch anything. The PC-P80 is still impressive in it's factory Black anodized aluminum finish, but even more stunning in enamel paint. It also attracts dust like a magnet. The 5.25 bays were the most time consuming pieces to prep and paint, because of the tiny ventilation holes.

Lame. Sorry. You learned to buff. Nice. I learned how to buff a hood when I was 12. But what did you mod?

Now show others on the forum instead of like you're bragging. MPCtech is getting very old in my book. You wanna sell something, just say it. Because you've never taught anything.

You have people asking you questions, and you all never really help. Start answering up. Quick. You're a company, so act like it. Without education, these are sales pitches.

I've even given suggestions and education on how to paint, and I get no reply from you guys. How long is too long?

This, is buffing a car in 30 minutes on the weekend. It's not that cool. It's a box about 2' high.

These pictures are taken from the MPCtech floor as well. Where ya'll sell stuff...your little club house others would call a business. Educate or move on.


The place they sell shit, when other brands seem to not be allowed:

If anyone is counting, it's 4 days to reply...and that covered a weekend.

The ambassador of them can't respond in a calendar year. November, and the feedback is vacant.

Besides getting skills before telling others "I'm good", get a damn camera man. If that's your intent...ya know...to advertise?

But I'll hold my breath for any of you guys to actually tell us all how you do this, and hold it longer for actual talent. The forum wants to know how to buff paint? I'll do that in 5 minutes, or chop it short and sweat here:

Get 3M perfect it, all three bottles, and a low speed jitter bug buffer. Work it 'til it shines. Chip Foose does it, and I have for 20 years too. You can skip the first bottle if you know how to lay down paint with a gun, but you shouldn't if you use rattle cans.

Well, everyone else liked it, including me. Sorry the world doesn't meet your expectations.

yeah, it is nice... but where is their how to guide?

Go look at all of their posts, they are showing off. There aren't any pics of the build process, pre-painting prep work. Talk about what products they used to buff out that shine.

The point Chumly is trying to make, is there isn't any contribution besides "HAY LOOKIE WHAT I DID". Which, while nice and shiny, doesn't do anything for the modding community here.

There haven't been any tips. No advice. Nothing. They are just showing off.
