Default Tinting my PC Window

I got a great idea based off a custom pc pic I saw. Tint my case window so that its black when off, but illuminates blue with all my fan LEDS when it is turned on. What do you think? I was thinking of using a spray on tint I used for the tailights on my car, since it came out solid black on there yet the brake lights and blinkers still shine through perfectly.

Good idea.. I think I'll do this myself.. The lights can be a bit bright for night gaming.

I've used the VHT tint before and it was hard to get PERFECT coverage. -Got lucky on my taillights on the Camaro. I'd just stick with the roll tint from Average-Auto.. (They're by FAR advanced.. :\ )

I'd put it on the outside, take the clear panel off completely, if you can. Grab some Stoner Invisible glass.. That stuff is AWESOME!!!

I know my local acrylic supplier has tinted acrylic, two sided acrylic and mirror acrylic as well.

hmm, i'd just buy some pre tinted plexi glass if it were me.

eStreet Plastics - plexiglass store

they have a nice selection and custom sizes are available.

The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD
