It's certainly an interesting idea.

I can't say I'm terribly fond of the blue paint but it is hard to see clearly in the photos.

Has potential I think Laughing out loud

Great idea

I agree that it is a great idea. The paint and appearance could be better, but it isn't bad. Personally, I'd love to see it look as if it were still a functional //c with the keyboard (probably more difficult than it sounds) Best of luck.

It's me

Well, I like the idea, because fynch and I were the ones that came up with it. I'm his friend with a dead ibook lcd and an apple //c+. I will agree though, I don't like the paint either. I painted it a few years ago when I got it, and I realize now what a stuipid idea it was. I'll try to put up some better pics of it sometime this week, but I have a very busy schedule consisting mostly of laying 'round the house in my PJs doing nothing. It's tough, but it's the life I lead....

Did the IIc+ still function, and if so, did you keep the parts? Wink
