Teasers !!! (crappy cell phone pictures)
All scratches removed (sanded down up to super steel wool for a smoooooooth finish), just the top, which was the worse part of he case, side panels and underside were also treated :

I just applied the first coat of glossy black paint and looks good so far !! another coat, 48 hours of drying time and it'll be assembly time !!!!

I wanted to get those too, but I couldn't find them anywhere for less than $30 plus shipping. $30 for 4 feet !!!!!
But then...

Good tip !!! Much easier to find audio equipment feet than computer case feet for some reason. Got the feet on the Bay, $11 with shipping (from China), took about 7 business days. And they look very good, are all anodized aluminium, and have the same kind of rubber insert on the bottom than the MNTech ones.
