Due to my envy of the black MacBooks and my inability to purchase one, I want to paint an iBook black. I have previously painted the screen case of an iBook, but I want to try it differently this time. This is an iBook G3 12 inch 700 mhz (16 VRAM) model. I believe the white paint can be removed with Isypropyl alcohol. I have a few questions:

1) I want it to look as much as possible similar to the black of the MacBooks, I don't know if this can be done with spray paint, or another type of paint. So I'd like to figure out what kind of paint to use.

2) Is it possible to paint the trackpad without damaging it?

3) I've seen that the black keys on the Titanium PowerBook G4 are compatible with the iBook's keyboard. Can someone please confirm that?

I want to paint pretty much the entire laptop black, so this includes the top case with the trackpad. This is pretty much what I want to do, but in black: http://www.macmod.com/content/view/778/192/

That's all for now, if there's any resources, tips, or advice, please let me know.

Your help is greatly appreciated!
