ok i had one of these cases laying around so i decided to paint the inside of it and see how hard and/or easy it was. i found that this was easier then actually painting the outside of a normal case. i didn't sand it. it only took two coats of paint. i did it in about 30 minutes with standard paint. if it scratches on the inside it can easilly be fixed very easily. the only problem i had was trying to paint it evenly, but that was fixed by holding up to a light. i decided not to paint the dvd front or the buttons. reason behind this is i'm saving the buttons for a later project. and i truely didn't like the way i thought the dvd front would look. here's the pics. i hope you enjoy.

i realize that the color is light in this one. it was a deferent setting on my camera. i did it just to show you a little bit better the smoothness of it.

Looks great, I love the way clear cases look when their painted on the inside. I think It would look even better with the DVD bezel painted, but whatever floats your boat.

I was just wondering if it was hard to tape everything off so that the paint didn't run onto the outside of that case. Good work.

I also haven't seen this yet, but I haven't been looking in the forum for long. I actually think the buttons look good the way they are...if you decide to leave them in this box.
