Anyone know how to take of front case of iPod Classic?

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?

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?
