    I do not have pictures yet, but i painted my eMacs shell a matte black and green. To me it looks like a tank, and i need some treads now.

    my inspiration was a truck my dad had, he painted it in the same manner, spray, so i grabbed a few cans and did this. It now has a digital camo wallpaper!

    It's ugly... :eek:
    It's not about your idea, rather quality of painting job you've done.

    if you can make a judgment call on the quality of the OP's paint job from those low rez photos, then you are seeing far more then I can see.

    sorry, my camera was about dead, and i need to get more batteries. it was spray paint, so it does look pretty bad compared to other paint jobs.

    Click on thumbnails of pic 1 and 2. I doubt that it's possible to fix it now. I don't even want to see hi-res pics ;)
    But idea was interesting.

    Is that water based acrylic paint??

    Those are pretty high resolution pictures, they're huge when at actual size.

    It slightly resembles the iMac G3 to me... except it's opaque. It looks nice though!
