You shoul get a BIOS screen and put that on there, even though that would be really hard....but be cool

or a metalic color like Formed and Spooky!
look at spookys guide.....maybe you could do it on your case

Humm, I like that Orange and black, but I don't think I have the skills to make it a matallic luster (or time..) Though that would be sweet. Humm, I'm gonna skip the inside and paint part of the outside black and orange.. Humm, time to buy paint!

Gangsta indeed..
I wouldn't have gotten it if it wern't for your guide, so thanks!

Ok, some more pics, top of case is this (1st coat)... I am going to do a orange to red fade on the top, front to back.. It probably won't look that great, but I don't like just plain colors. Just If I had an air brush.. Also, before I started, I cleaned my case with a little propane, gets it nice and clean. I did the painting in my garage.. My floppy disk camera made a few errors so I missed the sanding part. I used an orbital sander on that, best way to go...
