The "separator bar" on the webpage (with the flames) looks better than the iPod

No, but it looks like it lol. j/k I actually think it looks kinda cool. But, I don't need another iPod right now. Not until the minis are up in the 8gb range or so.

The paintjob on the scroll wheel alone would make me not want this thing. Who knows how good this person was in taking apart the ipod and painting the wheel. The thing could have heat issues, usability issues(might not register your fingers), and hardware issues because who knows what the hell else this kid did. I see what he was going for but I would not pay anywhere near what a new ipod costs to get this thing.

It's not bad for a home-job, but I sure wouldn't pay very much for it. Also, if it's never been used, why is it the black & white screen? How long did it take this guy to do the paint job? Or did he just wipe his iPod, paint it to hide use marks, and try to sell it off so he can upgrade?

That's a lot of work for a sell-quick scam. That said - dang that thing is nasty.

Although I realy question the quality of the paint job, etc., I'm still surprised no one has bid on it, knowing how hardcore some Star Wars fans get!

That is flat stupid. Wouldn't it be easy to print out one of those custom HP skins with a picture of Darth Vader on it?
