My first mini was colorwarED and it had a few imperfections near the apple and the CD inlet was also painted, so discs would scratch every time they went in because the inlet (normally like brushes) was hard and crusty. THe CDs would go in slow (because of the hard paint) and the motor used to pull the cd in and out would sound strained.

I had to put a bum cd in and out like 100 times to loosen it up. ONly then did they stop scratching, when the flakes of paint on the brush/pad whatever it is fell off.

Be sure you want to do this with your minis or notebooks.

That is why on my list there is a candle. I use the wax of the candle to cover the grey dust cover (the brushes). You can either cover just the dust cover, or fill up the whole slot in wax. Use the putty knife and put the edge against the face, slide it so it gets rid of the excess wax and makes it flat with the front. Then all you have to do is break up the wax if you put a thin layer, or push it completely out from the inside if you filled the slot. Usually it's best to put in the wax after you tape up the entire inside.

Just a suggestion for those of you bold enough to paint yourself.


I didn't catch that. They are painting the grey felt and that is what is scratching the disks. That's pretty lame.

I wonder if Colorware paints over the Apple logo and adds another, or do they outline the logo that is already on top?


It was a white logo on a jet black paint job, so it's completely, but it's right where the old one was.
