I'm no artist, but I often paint my computers black.
Nothing really rare/classic, you understand, unless you
count an Atari ST (also added some INMOS transputer links
to that one). Ordinary beige PC cases and disk drives are
much improved by the addition of some black paint, Allen
bolts, keyswitches, flashing lights (Ethernet Tx/Rx), and a
reset button with a clear plastic flip-top protective cover.
