    Anyone on here every try to paint a third generation iPod? I'm considering trying it myself if I can see some examples of others who have done it.

    The only way you would catch me painting my iPod is if I had 3 of them.

    I have an ipod nano. I never use my third generation iPod. I've been thinking about selling it, but I doubt I could get enough out of it to make it worth it. So I thought it might be cool to paint it red or something. I don't know how good it would look though.

    It looks like this place just colors brand new ones and sells you the ipod and the paint job. Is there anyplace that paints used ipods?

    Nope, I believe you can send your iPod/Mac into Colorware PC and they will paint it.

    that is correct... thay will order a new one and paint it for you, or you can send in one you already own and have it painted for a nominal fee...

    Apparently "nominal" is a relative term. :)

    $64-84 US.

    ^ you won't catch me putting nail polish remover anywhere near my iPod...so I guess it's only removable if you want to melt the plastic too.

    I do like some of those PaintJazz skins though. They look really nice.
