I'm thinking of painting my DVD drive as the rest of My PC is black and blue but it's silver.
How would you go about painting it though, I don't want to damage it at all, do you use spray paint or model paint, are there any holes you have to cover up or something?
Thanks in advance I'll post pics when it's done :)
 
I sanded mine down, masked over the sata and sata power holes, and spraypainted with a rattlecan,
its all in the time you spend preparing it really
just lightly score the sides/top/bottom with some fine grit paper,

And this is the top after it was painted,

take your time and it can look made, rush and it will look awful as well as the paint will flake off :)
remember to cover over the hdd activity led if you still want to see that, I didn't in my case so just painted over it :)

I've just found out that the outer casing comes off, no problems now, just need to buy spray paint as the black paint I did have hasn't worked on an inconspicuous bit.
