Default Interior Paint

One of the things that always bothers me when looking in a case is simply... COLOR.

You look at the Mobo and all the gear piled on, some with flair and lots of color.

But the inside of the case.... Ugh they are just so bland.

Has anyone here ever painted the inside of their case to give it more flair. If not has anyone else ever thought about it?

If you were going to paint the inside of you case what color/colors would it be?

Would it be a single color or would it be a color scheme of more than one color?

While I was at the hardware (home) store today I spotted some metalic gold and silver paint and though, man that would look cool in a case with a morror loke finish reflecting the blue leds. Hmmmmm

Next time I use a case for a build (presently using a HSPC case), I will most definitely powdercoat the interior. Black for sure.

I'm in the process of sanding and painting my case right now. I was planning on painting the inside black but I found some nice metallic green paint lying around and now I can't decide. Anything will beat the standard ugly grey steel of pretty much every case in existence. I was planning on posting some pics when I'm finished painting but the Bondo work seems to be slowing me down.

When I begin my case mod, I'm doing the interior either black or red, not quite 100% sure yet XD

I was thinking about pulling my Coolmaster CM690 apart and getting the inside powdercoated black. Even though my cose doesn't have a window on the side I just want everything to have a very professional and clean look to it.
