This seems to be a common problem with these otherwise excellent cases but Silverstone doesn't sell side panels and they're unwilling or incapable of doing a RMA just for the side panel. Returning the whole case is expensive and just impractical. So I'm wondering about options to cover it up. Since it's so small it doesn't have to be perfect. I had thought about a silver sharpie since I've had luck covering things up with them before but I was wondering about something with flake in it like the paint, maybe a nail polish?

Anyone have ideas?

A lot of appliances are painted a similar color, so maybe some appliance touch-up paint would work.
