You dont get what I am trying to do..

1) Get an ssd
2) Modify the cover (paint etc)
3) If ssd requires RMA in the future, buy a new ssd of the same model
4) Swap the modified cover with the new cover
5) Send out the SSD that requires RMA & when it returns I can sell of the extra SSD that I have

This way I can keep my warranty & also a sexy looking SSD for my build.

If it were a 512GB - 1TB class SSD, then yes, I'd worry about warranty. Since you're just planning on getting a Crucial M500 120GB though, I'm not sure it's worth all the hassle. More likely than not, you'd be able to get 256GB class SSDs at current 128GB class price points after a year or so. I think you're likely to spend 25-50% of the SSD's price on shipping with your current plan.

SSD will either have a serial number printed on a tamper-proof label or even have it engraved on the SSD casing. Serial is also electronically coded into the drive. So you're going to be attempting to remove (2) labels- the warranty seal and the serial number. If its engraved, your plan doesn't even get off the runway. Either way is a poor idea and is very likely a form of warranty fraud.
