Ideas for modding an iPod Mini case?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

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.
