Custom Paints

Firstly sorry if in wrong thread area.
I'm after some decent paint to spray my ram heatsinks, Mosfets, Gpu enclosure and my plastic rings on my corsair sp120's. obviously needs to be heat resistant to some extent, and looking for a goldish colour like seen on the ASUS Z87 Deluxe board but maybe toned down somewhat.

Here's a old pic of my rig for when first built before custom cable braid, fans etc etc just for reference of the effect i'm trying to achieve


and the colour i was seeking

You can use normal paint as long as you do it all properly (aluminium and plastic need different primers)

But dont paint your mosfet heatsinks, that will just insulate the heat and make them a lot harder to cool.

Take it to a paint shop and they will colour match it and make you up a close match.

You wont get it exact where your trying to match an anodised colour and not actual paint

yeah i know its anodised pitty really thats why i was thinking of painting it. To get that all round even look over all my parts at hand but if you think it would cause problems with temps then just have to work around it.
train of thought from now on is ignore the blooming mosfet and just concentrate on painting everything else, striking colour thats really compliments my rig
