    Lightbulb cases like this?

    i have a pretty sweet idea in my head for a case mod but i came into a problem when thinking how to make it.

    well anyway does anyone know any cases like the one below, that do not have the inset thingys outlined in red. i ask because i am planning on sanding down the case and applying a a reflective black paint on. well i'm planning on taking it to a auto-detailer shop and getting them to do it, do you think they would have problems getting in those cracks or do you think i should find a similar case with a flat front. i would like you guys to find me a case that is the same size or bigger, and i prefer it have a side window like this so i dont have to cut/mod in a window myself. this case on newegg is $80 with a 420W 2 fan P4 psu, i would like a similar price maybe $60-$70 max if it does not come with a psu.

    or is there a way i would be able to fill in the cracks with some kind of putty or melted plastic. how do you guys think the final paint job would look in those parts if they were composed of a different material.

    I'd paint it as-is.
