    yup, you can cover the touchpad as long as the cover's not conductive and not too thick.

    Chumbo looks expensive.

    For anyone else considering this, there's another thread with instructions for getting a PS/2 touch pad very cheaply. Will require wiring up your own ps/2 cable. And you could use a USB->PS/2 adapter if you needed usb.

    I bought a .9"x1.7"x1.7" miniature track ball off ebay. There is a guy selling them 1 at a time. I wanted something quick that would sit in the space next to my hand brake and that fit the bill.

    That's a good idea. I know this works because I have these stickers on my Ti Powerbook track pad. Now why didn't I think of that?

    Maybe one slight advantage is I can change the film with different patterns.

    Looks real good Mac! Aren't you glad you got a Dremel? I know I was when I first got mine. Got tired of dad trying to get his Craftsman Rotary Tool back.

    Thanks!

    The Dremel is defintely a pretty cool tool. I can't wait to use it again! I got all the attachments with lots of extras! Except for the grout attachment. I didn't think I would relaly ned that.
