As for painting i really want to, but just the top cover. it will be too hard to redo the letters and the writing on the front panel.
If anyone has any ideas fell free to shoot them over this way

As far as painting, yes it needs a paint job.. Id do either a satin black or a semi gloss black personally.. ANd you CAN redo lettering on it.. You just need some vinyl lettering.. I've seen it in sizes as small as 2 pt. font (As your PC would print it)..
I think it would be cool if it would still play tapes, lol.. But thats just me!
Is it possible to use any of those buttons to control your box? Like the stock power buttons to turn it on, etc?

first off the dimensions for the case is 15.5 in long 9.75 in wide and 4.25 in high (without the feet
the motherboard actually almost fit in there perfectly. i just had to trim a little at the door hinge things to make it fit.
As far as the buttons go the only ones that work are the rewind (which is for power), fast forward( dvd eject) and two of the switches. i had to cut up the boards to fit the dvd drive in.
Also i like the idea of the cold cathodes. i think i will cause it sounds easier then leds.
