Get an aluminum or plastic electronics "project box" from somewhere like Radioshack. Drill or dremel your desired logo/design in one side. Drill or dremel a hole in the back cover that you screw on to run wires through. Either hide a small cold cathode in there or hook up a terminal strip and add some LEDs that can handle power from a molex.

If you do a cold cathode, I wouldn't suggest putting the power inverter in the project box as it may not get enough cooling/airflow to not burn it up. In that pic I just have a cc toward the back of the box while my power terminal lies on the bottom of it. I also have a bunch of very small boxes with a couple LEDs in them, but I haven't decided what to do with them yet. If I end up getting a classified, I'll do more of the red "E"s from the NB area and place them on the front and side of my HAF.

Altogether it is a fun $5-$15 project, depending on which route you go.
