    I've recently came into ownership of an iMac and I tried cleaning it with a magic sponge, which unknowingly to me badly scratched it. I originally wanted a tangerine iMac, but ended up with an lime one, so I was wondering if the translucent parts of the cases and all other green parts can be changed to orange. Is it possible?

    Yes, it can de done, but you need to disassembly both units almost completely (what could be difficult and kinda dangerous if you don't feel comfortable with discharging CRT).
