5.25" to 3.5" / black

I bought a black computer case. It has all 5.25" bays. I want to mount a floppy in it. All of my 5.25" drives are black and so is my floppy. However the 2 x 5.25" to 3.5" converters that came with my case are white. I think it throws the look off. Where can i get a few of these converters for cheap. Sidenote: (if you know it would be great) Like I said, all of my drives are black. There is one exception my NEC 3.5" ZIP100 drive. It has a gray faceplate. Can I get a black replacment?

probably your best bet is to contact directly some of the places that Wakeup listed or other case sites where you see black as they probably have sources for the parts but might not list them as they are either special order or to limited in sales to spend the time showing them.  Many times contacting them directly can produce either positive results or referral to a source that they are aware of.

Hope that helps

hey guys, lok what i found:
http://www.directron.com/flopdrivmoun.html

After Wakeup gave me a bunch of links to directron i started poking around there. I found a link to the "floppy" section. There was this. It has a black option.

So, is this what i was looking for? And what should i do with the points?

Why don't you just paint it black??  I had the same problem a few years ago when I was doing up a black case and I could not find a converter that was black...so I painted it myself.  Nobody has ever said "that's not an original black converter" to me.  I have since painted my DAT drive and CD Burner.  They all look great.

I also found that you pay a premium for the black components.  My cdrom was manufactured black from the company and it cost me $20 for no appearent reason other than the color.
