I'm trying to take off the cover and dye it... Is it even possible to do it without anodizing it? And does anyone know where to get/have instructions or guidelines to pry the front case off?

Thanks, that site looks like it's spot on. And it kinda scares me a bit. lol.

Yeah the front case is a lot like the bottom case of a notebook. In order to remove it or swap it you must take everything out of the device :). Good luck! It's not that difficult from my experience.

I hope it's not. Sounds like it just takes a lot of time and a lot of patience to not screw anything up.

Does anyone have any knowledge about painting it?
