    Hi! I've always loved the look of the Ruby iMac G3's, and I would love to get an iBook clamshell to look the same way. Also, I have a screen from a broken 12" iBook G4 that I could use to upgrade the resolution. Is there any advice on how to dye/paint an iBook clamshell the same color and upgrade the resolution using that screen?

    I think that's the natural color of the rubber so that probably wouldn't work, but thanks! Any chance this would work:
