Default Monitor Painting

For the issue of the ventelation holes when painting monitors,

Just open the monitor and take the guts out along with th fromnt frame and mask the vent holes from the inside , put monitor back together and paint and clearcoat , when dry open and take off masking tape , hope this helped

well if the cover is taken off, there isnt much need for masking the inside
i think it would be best for the paint to go through once the cover is set on layers of newspaper or a sheet

because when you mask and paint, the paint will collect in those pockets once the tape is there to block
and things will get sticky
but yeah, take off the cover is the key

spray painting is fun but it takes a while to get used to
practice on old newspaper is a good way to familiarize one's self with an airbrush
