I was going to spray paint my case yellow, and also cut out a case window and a blowhole at the top of my case for the 120mm that will be cooling the radiator in my new water cooling rig. I was wondering if you cut the holes first and then spray paint it afterwards. Or paint then cut?

remeber to do alot of light coats of paint , that will give you the best result , I did the inside of my case and it took 2 cans of spray paint and about 6 hours and I sprayed it 4 times and I still got some drips but they are now covered by the mobo
hey post some pix when you are done if you can
