Someone over at the MacNN Forums posted this quote unquote "Crappy Photoshop" of a black iBook..
To me, it looks more like dark grey and goldish brown and I'm in love.
What I would like to know is how it could be possible? What colors of paint could be used?
From the looks of it, the bottom is a goldish brown. Very nice.
The frame in the middle is a dark grey color as is the top part. Not quite black. Not quite grey. Just slightly lighter than black.
The iBook I have is a 600MHz 2002 model G3. It is the clear cased kind. So it would be easy to paint once the case were off.
What kinds of paint are recommended. Are there colors made like this in spray form.
I guess the only part not recommended to paint is the Trackpad and I could keep the keyboard. (BTW, what keyboards are compatible with an iBook? Or at least key caps. The perfect keyboard is a Bronze one. I could keep the keys white if I needed to.)
I would want paint that won't fade too fast on the mouse button and palmrest. Also, something that won't melt from the heat. Also, would I still be able to see the Sleep Light pulsing.
What size tools will I need to simply remove the case from everything including the CD tray and battery bottom. I might keep the port part white.
I'm just curious about the practicality of trying this modification. If it's too hard, forget it. I'll just paint something in the top part. Or insert a picture in there.
