Default PSU sleeving Questions

Hey guys,
Im pretty much done fixing up my build for this time of the year except one lat project i want to do next week, sleeving my psu/system.

Where would I get the components? something of good quality but that will not smash the bank.

And, any suggestions as to the collor I should get? I had white/red in mind or something. Included ****ty cellphone pics of my case:

Nils has the best sleeving I've used. Don't let the international part bother you, his shipping rates and times are excellent. MDPC-X International

Yeah I was actualy looking at that right now, thinking of getting:
Pin-Remover 4-Pin - Save My Wallet
PR-SMWE 2,27 Euro
Pin-Remover by MOLEX - The Original
PR-MOLEX 14,45 Euro
Sleeve SMALL - VANILLA SANDS N.17
SL-S-VS 6,68 Euro
MDPC Sleeve-Kit
SL-K1-BK 35,29 Euro

Total: 58,69 Euro


That way I could do a full black sleeve+ beige accents( that would fit my TR fans)

Use a couple of staples instead of the molex pin remover. It works a lot better and cheaper.

All that holds the pin in is a tab, so slide the staple intoeither side, that depresses the holdback tab, pull the wire/pin out, once you do 1 you will be " oh okay this is super easy and no i didnt need the tool.
I have a bunch of those pin tools and use staples 99% of the time.

EDIT:

Gord I see you use reg staples, if you have acsses to the 1.5 inch powerstaples they work wonders since one staple is all you need, I will try and post a image in the AM so you can see what I mean. Got a couple boxes out in the shop so I have thousands.
