Macintosh Color Classic for Trade

I have a (I think) working Color Classic. I don't have the keyboard or anything else - although can dig around in the garage just in case - but was looking to make a MacAquarium (yeah I know it's an old thing but hey!).

 

I'd prefer not to gut a possibly working and especially color Mac so willing to trade for a non-working or even a case of maybe an SE? I think they are a bit squarer and would make a better tank.

Does anyone have any contacts

Does anyone have any contacts for making a MacAquarium? I seem to be striking out on that part as well.

I'm not sure what you mean by

I'm not sure what you mean by "contacts" for making a MacQuarium, but here's a guide I wrote a long time ago that details the process:

Please don't make one out of a Color Classic. Even dead, they're valuable to collectors for either repair or spare parts. I'd advise trying to find an SE or Classic/Classic II that's beyond repair and using its case. It's becoming common for the PRAM battery on those to leak and severely damage the motherboard.

My Mistake!

I was told that this is just a newer Mac Classic and NOT a color mac. I apologize for the error.

 If you haven't already, REMOVE THE BATTERY IMMEDIATELY! These computers are prone to leaking batteries that will destroy the motherboard.
