I would go with modyourmac on this one. Lightly sand, prime, paint, glossy clear coat. That would look really nice. You could come up with some cool logo or pattern for it too. I would love to see it when you are finished. -maestro
...Get the parts off... ...So I walked out dissapointed, but I still had my AppleCare
the very fact that you opened your powerbook yourself you have voided Applecare. Nearly the entire machine is deemed "User Unservicible." I replaced my HDD and optical drive with better models. Since i installed them myself, instead of paying an "Apple Service Technical Minor Deity" the 200 some-odd bucks to do it, i voided my applecare with a year remaining.
so if you have a problem and send it in, they might notice it's been dismanteled, they might not. but since its all taken apart and warranty voided, why not get some paint and have a go at it. As soon as i can get away with not haveing my laptop for about two weeks i'll be stripping it down and paining it with a theme of black, green, orange, and purple.
2.4gHz 15" MacBook Pro, 1.66gHz Core Duo Mac Mini, 2.5gHz G5 QUAD, 733mHz Quicksilver, 450mHz G4 Cube, 700mHz G3 iBook, 350mHz Sawtooth G4, 350mHz Revs. A and B B&W G3, 16mHz Powerbook 100, 8mHz Macitosh Classic.
I wasn't actualling thinking of painting it. I just wanted to take it down to bare metal and then chrome it with REAL chromium, just like they do to movie props. I'd have to be more careful with it then, of course, 'cause it'd be a bit more eye-catching, and scratches would look even worse. As it is, I have fatty scratches on the bottom of the bottom case, on the top of the top case (along with dents), the sides of the bottom case are all bent, and I'm down to one foot. The top of the bottom case and bottom of the top case, thankfully, are damn-near unscathed, and the two feet are in pristine condition. But, like I said in the first post, I won't be doing this anytime soon, most likely.
