    hey i was wondering if anyone has done the icolours decal mod on the newest update of the mbp. are/were there any differences in the disassembling method as shown on the icolours.ca website? the site seems a little outdated...

    i was thinking of doing this mod myself as it seems pretty awesome. :D

    I ordered and received a three pack of mods to use. Attempted it on my macbook pro but have chickened out. I was trying to pry the lid off and was applied too much force and got scared.

    I hate you. Just kidding.

    I'm usually pretty adventurous with stuff like this but I'd freak if I killed my display or scratched it up. I ended up finding a guy through this site that sold stickers so I'm gonna try that.

    Unless I can ship my macbook pro to you in London? ha ha

    Wow, that's pretty cool. Does the backlight on the apple logo still light up ?

    Is there a tutorial on the steps you followed?

    If you're using the icolours inserts, the light does shine through.

    icolours.ca has instructions posted for each model mac but, in my opinion, I didn't find them to be incredibly detailed and the photos were rather small. At least for the macbook pro they were.

    it seems like a cool way to customize your mac, but i could not dare myself to pull it apart to that extent.

    IF People were interested i would be happy to do a tutorial?

    you could and id do it - buts it is a way!

    you are not modifying your lcd in ANY way it is a acrylic that you lay over the apple logo on the inside of the top lid :D

    ive just replaced my harddrive - http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=554506 - so taking the top lid off is a breeze ;)
