Default Modding advice

I am willing to repaint my PC since it's now cold, and I would like to get some opinions:

Should I paint my caser Green with the CD/FDD and the back Chrome?

Or, Should I paint it black and the CDs/FDD and back yellow?

Also, if I open the CD drive tray and paint it, is there chance that some of the paint could go on the laser andmake it unusable?

Black and yellow ew, go with the green and chrome.

And I wouldn't worry about the inside of the CD tray, and well, yeah it might start to chip and you wouldn't want paint chips all over inside of your computer..

Green and chrome it is!

Now, for the CD, if I...no, I just found out how! I will duct tape around the tray, open the tray and I will close the tray so it would be something like: CD, tape, Tray (Closed) so it won't get stuck. These things will be painted chrome.
Everything seems good to use. Now, Friday, here I come!
