Heres a tip with spray painting a monitor - 10/19/05 08:54 PM

A co-worker yesterday took his 17inch gateway monitor that was once white then turned brown from cig smoke. Anyway he gutted it for painting and painted it a flat black. When he put it back together and turn it on it zaped'em. Not a fatel like zap, just some static from the tube, kinda like off of that movie office space when that guy open's the door to the office everyday and gets zaped. Well come to find out the pait he used has metal particals in it. Good thing he didn't paint the whole inside of that monitor caseing. Also you can feel that case heatup, I mean really heat up. I bet it will melt soon lol.

Just thought I would share this as a tip for when painting a monitor make sure to use a gloss and not a flat based paint that has metal particals.
