The guy who did the black iMac writes that while he was doing the mod he broke parts of the electric system, so the Superdrive, hard disk, and the monitor backlight don't go on. Guess it's one of those "Kids, don't do this at home" kinda things...
i stripped the original paint from my cube last weekend and its going to be powdercoated black when i get back from kentucky in two weeks..
im currently running it though with dual harddrives (an 80 and a 40gig).
I need to find black translucent sheet of plastic that i can cut and customize for the top of the cube.. ill post pics of course when its done..
