Red with black stripes wouldn't look too bad either. ;)

Are you running the blue led fan up front? If yes here's what I would do. Paint it classic white with a blue stripe like a Shelby Mustang! Or my 2nd choice would be black with a blue or white stripe.

You can kind of play on the Mustang theme too with the top of the case sort of looking like a blower scoop. I have seen a mustang styled case before, it was a pretty serious mod though. I am thinking you could get by with a shmancy paint job

You can try wet sanding it and respraying it. Are you using spraycan? If so remember to hold the can about 6-8 inches away and use light coats. Don't rush while painting. Also the technique I use is to spray across then stop and go back the other directing overlapping about half an inch to an inch of the above section.
