Default Silverstone TJ07

Just bought a second-hand TJ07 off of ikeenan off HWC.
Great condition! some drilled out holes on the bottom, but none the less great.
Removed some old stickers with some nice Goo B Gone!
Now, I need help. I'm looking to install some nice visual mods like cold cathodes and UV cathodes, ordered both. Should i get the sleeving/heatshrinking tubing/ UV reactive SATA cables and IDE and molex connectors, etc.?
What colour should i get?
NOTE: my Zalman 9700NT HSF is green. LED's on my audio card is Blue.

Right now im running an Antec 900, so blue intakes on the front bays, and blue exaust at the back.The green Zalman HSF adds a pretty cool touch.

My Razer DeathAdder is blue, my Samsung 2253B is also blue LED, and my G15 Logitech keyboard is...orange haha.

So I can't figure out what colour scheme to go with....btw, I'm planning to get 2 Silverstone 5.25" to 3.5" bay drive convertors that also act as frontside intake fans (to extra cool my gpus)

My TJ07 came with a windowed side panel..

any suggestions?

will take pictures of my antec 900 if requested

Well it is getting close to the holidays- you just need a couple of red lights in there and you'll have a christmas tree.

I pulled all my LEDs out of my case except the 2 intake fans on my rad, the rad is mounted up front where the bays would be, those 2 I blacked out the light spillage so no light is visible from anywhere but dead on the front. Replaced my blue cathodes with UV ones and am loving it, the light is subtle now instead of glarish.
Probably not the look you want but thought I would post it just the same.

If the TJ07 is to replace the 900, and you wont use the 900, feed the TJ07 the 900 cages, it works/looks better than anything you can put there, IMO at least.

Sorry Cadence... I would send you some pics of what it looked like with my set up and Blue CCFL, but I can't seem to find any at the moment. The drilled holes in the bottom are from the giant rad i stuffed into her!
