Fantastic. Glad to hear I have your approval too haha. I had trouble finding instructions to paint an iPod so I'll write up a little guide. Also showing a couple of other things I expect.
It will be black unfortunately. My painting skills aren't great Razz Unless there's something you recommend?

Oh I can't actually start this process til at least next Friday or the Monday after, annoyingly. Due to exams and because the sand blaster is at school so I don't have constant access to it.

black sounds fine to me lol paint it whatever color you want. your school has a sand blaster? I wish my school had one. to set up for sand blasting and painting I would attach the piece or pieces of metal housing to a stick so it is suspended in the air. That gives you open space to put even coatings of paint and to make sure it is sand blasted equally.

Yeha, my school's pretty well equipped tbh. Not much I can't do there, if they let me that is. I should be able to spray and paint it or whatever in there too. I just need to ask haha. I'll do what you say. Thanks for the advice

Ok, in the process of taking it apart and putting it back together today, I killed it grr! But I'm bidding for a broken iPod so I should be able to get it running again. I'm upset!

On the up side the new parts came and I'm very pleased with them. I would upload pictures but my camera is not happy about connecting to my cmoputer...so we'll see

There are two little things which appear to be fragile, which stick up a little. I think they're capicitors. Ugh, hopefully the new one will get me there
