Well a few days after I got my iPod stolen one of my friends gave me his "broken" iPod Mini. Turns out all it needs is a new drive (I told him that, but he's just gonna buy a nano), so I'm following this guide to replace it with a CompactFlash Card.

But while its still open I want to do something to the boring silver case. I just dont know where to start. I've been thinking about painting it like this (sans the 16 GB flash card). What kind of paint would I use to do that? I have some really fine sandpaper, but I have no idea what kind of paint would work best on anodized aluminum.

I was also thinking about leaving it unfinished (No silver paint, just aluminum), I just dont know how feasable that is.

If anyone else has any cool ideas or can help me with this one, please post them. Thanks.

what about air-brush ...

my friend painted his pc case in purple-black ...

you can paint ipod in pink,then stick some sticker on back side,and then paint again in black or dark-blue ...
then just remove sticker(s) and voila ...

You can go to an air-brush shop or smth.Paint it black , then add stickers on the back and paint it white , and so on and so forth.
