Painting GPUs

Soo like I mentioned before I really didn't like the green/copper look clashing with the black/red R4E theme:

So I started to paint the GPU with liquid tape - first coat:

So here's how it looks now after two coats on both sides:

You can see some of the texture here, liquid tape is hard to work with - either annoyingly thick, or very thin and see through:

From this angle the texture isn't as bad:

However it would look a lot better with a backplate, I'm thinking something like this, smoked acrylic with an etch and a couple of LEDs to light it from the side:

What do you guys think?  Feel free to photoshop up your own suggestions :)
