Windows 7: Need advice with moding one old Delux case

I was not at home today,I was working a lot and was tired,so the case is not sprayed today.

I was thinking about coloring the parts of the motherboard,but as I said above,I have never do that,and I'm scared of screwing something.

Here is how looks my mb and parts on it.

What would you tell me about the fan to be on the upped side of the case ? How good will be that ?

@linnemeyerhere
I don't know if I can find UV paint. I was thinking to buy and red or silver spray and to spray it on the side,and maybe if I can draw some tribals on it.

Mobo and attached components would be a bad idea to paint. Drives and PSU could get painted but not that important. You would have to pay very close attention to proper masking as fan cage would need to be masked from the inside and never paint the electronic side of the hard drives, oh and as mentioned before this paint on the drives could retain heat so good air flow over these parts would be helpful.

Hello Alan,thanks for answering. I'll see tomorow if case can be sprayed. When that will be done,I'll post pictures here.
I was also thinking to spray and the inside of the case... If I do that,I'll also scrap and spray the other side of the case covers.

Stalker,
What are you asking? The vents below are going to be great for air to the video cards and would be good for PSU but if I remember it's on the top. The round hole would be fine for the CPU but depending on the CPU cooler you may be limited to just a grill and not a grill and intake fan. Now are you considering a window or mesh so you can see your handy work? I would leave the lower louvers and maybe add some quiet 80mm fans, then cut a nice bit square or rectangle above that as getting all fancy with curves will be a pain.

Then I would hole saw two 120mm or 140mm holes in the top to add fans exhausting if they'll fit. Are you considering water cooling and if so sealed or customs? I still like the idea of two 120mm holes but make sure the ram and mobo components fit with the rad. and fans of just the fans.

Aham. And yes,before that I was thinking to make a holes on that side(Like this)

otherwise of the cpu,and to put my 120mm fan inside,to take that air from inside.

For this conf,I don't need water cooling,and it's also too expensive for me. You think about adding fan here ? I was thinking that also,but if put it there,it wont be able to cool my cpu,because just above the cpu is psu case.

For the plexiglass I'm not sure,because they are expensive here.

Stalker,
Got ya. The perforating or drilling of all those holes won't come out looking good as the precision needed is to great. I would use a hole saw then cover with a cool looking grill. You should have no problem squeezing in one 120mm or larger 140mm in an exhaust position in the top. I would layout the mobo with ram and cooler and place inside where it doesn't interfere. These top fans need speed restriction or you need to purchase high quality fans like Noctua's!

Noctua is very good and also expensive. I don't need it atm,maybe if I buy another pc. Also I was working a lot today,and the case is finally sprayed,and I also made holes on the side. So here are the pictures,I'm waiting for comments.
