Front panels for DVD drive

  Jonathon J-189322 22:30 07 Aug 2006

Does anybody know where I can buy replacement fronts for DVD drives, as my LG GSA 4167B is beige, but I'm building a computer in a black case and would like to use this drive inside it??

I contacted LG themselves but to no avail. I really like the drive and would like to keep it!! :-)

Please help!!

Can only find things like click here

You may find a DVD drive on Ebay with a black front

your best option would be to paint it. buy a can of spray paint that matches your case, gently sand the area you want to paint, use a primer/undercoat and then paint it the colour you want (car paints are usually best) and if you want to use either a matt or gloss varnish (to match the cases finish) for extra protection to the paint.

as far as I remember they were just beige or silver...

Unless you're sentimentally attached to it replace for less than £30.

Hi godders1984,

You don't say what case you are using, but if it's a Lian-li
click here scroll to bottom they have a black stealth bezel, basically it's a bezel with a sprung loaded flap that gets pushed by the tray as it comes out, if not a Lian maybe you could mod it to fit or Google-stealth bezels- for your case.
