    What should I do next - I think it needs something on the bezel - maybe a black one? (Macstyles say thee coming up with a bezel style... but its ben like that for ages!)

    Also what about the front of the macbook? Any idea's or suggestions?

    I know I've posted these pics before, but I'm just wondeing what I should mod next on it... I think part of me thinks if I brake it in a modding frenzy I could get one of the new models :eek:

    second pic didnt upload the first time..

    Replace the white body with a transparent body. That would be neat.

    I still have my transparent gameboy pocket and LOVE it. It's so sweet. If I could get a transparent macbook casing, I would in a heartbeat.

    That would be pretty cool, I've seen it done with an iBook before here, so it would be neat to see it done with a MacBook as well :)

    I think that clear housings are a bit out dated now... and I'm not that advanced a modder - as you'll see mine are all things I can stick or pop on.

    If I was going to take it apart, I'd do the dip dying thing I saw a guy do on the forum a while ago... but I'd be to scared to do that i think, maybe when I actually buy a unibody.

    Was really after thoughts on a vynal for the front - though maybe just the red logo is enough. Hopefully macstyles will release a bezel vinyl... I just think its missing something from the screen.

    Maybe a few wallpaper suggestions would help?

    Any other macstyle modders out there?

    I really like the red Apple logo on the front but IMO im not too fussed on the red interior. How about completely changing the interior colours lol!? Definately thing a red bezel would help the look of it loads, even it all out so to speak.

    I think take off the keyboard+mouse top plate, take off the keys, mask everything up and spray it - a good keying, then some plastic primer, sand, then the paint job small coats and sand, then the lacquer to seal it. If you can take off the bezel, do the same.

    The red is a nice idea, but did you use vinyl on the top plate? I'm not a fan of the border around it, although maybe the photo doesn't do it justice.

    IF you're into it, the snow white thing would look good with the red apple. Otherwise, I think that it looks good enough.
