I originally had planned to take off all of the casing, remove the white paint and airbrush zebra stripes.

Well, bad news.
I have a G4. This means the plastic is solid white and isn't painted.

So, is anyone willing to sell me a 14" G3 casing that I can use? You would become my best friend!!! haha  Grin

Anyway, I changed the apple logo. I know it's nothing special. Just pink to match my hair. Hopefully soon I'll be able to get my hands on a G3 case and post a zebra print version....

you can always find some zebra materail & either cut a piece & sew  it & put elastic  to fit the screen top or buy some of that tape they got out & put it all over the cover & put they materail on with it that way if you get get tired of the print or it gets wore out you can always put on a new peice of materail.. but i can't think of the name of that tape... or even yet you can get ahold of that hew stuff they came out with to use for photos  print out a zebra design out with it..you can use it to adhere onto the cover & can remove it later... good luck trying to figure what to do... But i do like the pink apple...alot better than the red

I suggest getting some black model paint, it comes in an aerosol can. you can get it at any craft store or model supply store, also get some clear coat model paint in a can.

Then just put the stripes on with a stencil. Smiley

Sorry I  don't have any suggestions for you.  I've never tried decorated a laptop before, but I just thought I let you know that your pictures gave me a chuckle or three.  Cheesy

sorry to be dense, but how'd you change the logo?  do they sell different colored apples?

i've always wanted to decorate my laptop, but i'm afraid.  let me know how yours turns out.

I like the pink apple symbol. Maybe you could find zebra striped stickers/decals to put on it? *shurg*
