You have a tangerine which means you have a chance of doing a trans mod to it. For anyone else considering this mod for their older ibooks, if you have a graphite, indigo, or key lime model you absolutely can not make them translucent because the white coloring is actually part of the plastic. The ibook (dual USB ) is moddable to translucent (very popular mod), but in the same way, iBook G4s have white plastic rather than clear plastic painted white.

So back to your ibook krzegyrl......I used to own a BB one, but am having a hard time remembering. Is the plastic already translucent? It has a grey/silver look, but is that just the shielding on the back of the LCD screen?

if the plastic is painted below, you can remove it using 95% or greater isopropyl alcohol very easily. If you want to attach a pic, you can do so by uploading and then pasting the img info from the popup window. You can only up 1 pic per post

Notes for if your iBook is clear, which I am 90% positive it is::

If you have difficulty finding 95% or so isopropyl alcohol, your best bet is to visit the pharmacy, as opposed to other sources. Watch what you are buying, because most of the stuff out there is 70%. Too little isopropyl alcohol content and that's a lot more scrubbing than needed. It will work, but as well as a sponge in crude oil. As for something to remove paint with, paper towels work okay, though a soft cloth may be better, it's your choice.



Why I edited:
I phrased part of it in such a way as to confuse the reader. My appologies.

the reason that your images are not posting is because they are of a funny format. You need to make sure that they are of an acceptable web format, ie. jpg, gif, or png. wink
