    Build yourself a knight-rider Kitt LED chaser? With the right square/rectangular lenses (and maybe blue LEDs) that'd look interesting. I'd have thought someone would do such a kit to buy but can't find one anywhere.
    Or how about a tape drive? http://www.thinkgeek.com/computing/drives/7a8d/ - true, not in black, but random!
    Cup holder/lighter? http://www.crazypc.com/products/8177.html
    Amplifier/built-in speakers? http://www.xoxide.com/thermaltake-xpeaker.html

    Fan controller - One of those Scythe ones?

    VFD - Maybe imon, or Matrix orbital?

    Pull out drive caddy thing? Some of those black aluminium ones look quite good.

    Multi function panel?

    A Chesney Hawkes shrine in black.

    It's just a normal blanking plate with a hole cut out, just big enough to slot 1 single in cassette format in.
