Corsair 350D - PlastiDip?

So I've got my mind set on a 350D build, but unfortunately the 350D only comes in black. So after doing some research I've decided that PlastiDip would be a very good solution to that problem since if I don't like it I can just peel it off and I don't need to sand, prime or use different paints . I've made a quick (and I mean quick) mock up of what I'm thinking of using photoshop.

What do you think?



Has anyone tried PlastiDip before and had any problems?

Personally, I would leave the front plate and bay covers as they are. Do the rest, except the inside, in white.

The beauty of PlastiDip is, I can spray the front anyway and see how I feel about it. If I don't like it I can just peel it off

I also don't plan on spraying the inside, just both the sides, top and front.

As for the Corsair logo being covered, I can buy a metal corsair logo off eBay to go over the top.

I also plan on buying some white fans (Corsair Air Series?), does anyone have any good suggestions for white silent fans?

I thought that, but I'm not going to be moving the case about so there's less chance of scratching it and I can do quite a few coats. If I do scratch it I can just spray over it?
