Can you explain more fully why you need to replace the case or is it just the covers? There's a few options here you could try before go that far.


I´m looking for a full new Body Kit (maybe including new acu). New outframe arround the display and the backside of the Display. New Keyboard, and all plastic parts from the bodykit. In the best case a black KIT from the black Mac Book version. Because my Mac Book looks dirty and used, very hard used. Any idea where to get a full new kit? Is it at all possible to change every thing?

It will be hard and expensive locating all of the cover plates and sundry parts to make your system like new again. You may want to consider getting a new system (new or used) if it's that worn.

You do have some options here in refinishing your system:

- Apply self-adhesive skin wrap

- Snap on hard plastic skins

- Take your covers off, sand them down and dye them with RIT Dye Heres a Sample. Which I think is the coolest! As you can go with almost any color other than White.

- If you want the metal look you could go full tilt and take your covers to a plating shop Computer Choppers as an example. You can get Black or other anodized finish or Copper or Chrome metal as well. Polycarbonate covers require more work but can be plated as well.
