@TjLaZer
What color did you use at the end for your metal casing?

I also want to paint it and I am facing same dilemma...

nEcRo bUmP!

Revisiting this.  I haven't painted the case yet, but the monitor turned out great!  Dover white.

I used Halford's Renault Glacier White to respray my tower. I didn't have a good plastic sample so took in the Commodore A-1200 case badge. It was clean and won't have faded and I felt it a really good match.
A1200 in DIY Tower. 3.0 ROMS (but 3.1 in RAM), 3.5" HD, CD Rom and IDE to SD adapter running off the internal IDE port (using the A4000 4-port IDE adapter from Amigakit), Blizzard 1230-IV, with 32MB 60ns RAM and 50MHz 68882 FPU. 3COM PCMCIA Network card running with Miami DX. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PrGdL6XjmE

Krylon Fusion will give excellent results. I use it on the Commodore 8 bit stuff and the Amiga cases. Always remember how important the prep work is! And paint with light, full strokes.
If you haven't used these new spray cans, practice before you commit.
