Take the keyboard apart and then do this:

I'll be doing my motherboard and GPU cooler when I finally decide to get down to it.

Might look nice, but man I'd be worried about heat with that. Plastic doesn't make the best heatsink. :P Most of that circuitry may not generate a lot of heat, but it's also not normally fully insulated in plastic.

Ok so I went to a Sherwin Williams down the street from my dorm and they recommended a Kyron Indoor/Outdoor plastic primer and a Kyron Colormaster white semi-gloss spray, so I bought them.

Did I make a good choice? If so how many coats do I need of each?

I'm curious how your keyboard turns out. Might paint mine too.

Well here it is! It went better than I thought since I have little experience with spray paint. It's not perfect but I think it looks pretty good. Its got more of a rough texture, which I'm fine with. The edges where the cap icon is were really rough after taking the masking tape off. I think I put on too many coats in this area. Luckily I had paint thinner and was able to fix the edges a bit, along with using a tiny brush of paint with a ruler.

It looks nice but that texture kills it for me.
