Thats almost exactly what I d

Thats almost exactly what I did with my DA
except I did mine in white. Make sure you take everything off that is going to be painted and do a good job with prep, primer etc. If you are going to paint. The front and back look pretty cool if you give them a gloss finish.

hi there

hi there, interesting concept for a paint job!! would totally rock out

Now...
I like the idea of using a color like red, blue, or whatever on the apple logo. As a design guy I think that if you use an accent color somewhere in your color scheme you should carry it into a couple of the other details too-- like the power and reset buttons,cd-rom button, or the transparent handles it would really kick it up a notch Smile this makes your eye kinda say, "ok, this color belongs here"

If you're looking for transparent paint there's a couple of ibook mods here on applefritter that use stuff you could use.

Looks pretty nice. One detai

Looks pretty nice. One detail that I noticed that seeems a bit off is that the screws on the side panels are plain. You might try a P-Shop edit to see what it would look like if you had gone over the screw heads with the red paint.
