    Need a mac mini SKIN

    Hi folks...I am looking for a mac mini skin. I want to hide my mini as much as possible. you can see from the pic below, that even with the cup holder lid up, the mini would still show.

    Black is what i'm looking for. Tips/ideas/suggestions would be appreciated

    Thanks

    check with a local sign shop, they can give you any kind of vinyl you want, they even may be able to print some the same shade as your interior if you decide to go that route. You can get some very cheap so dont pay too much. Get a length and cut it to fit the silver part of the mini body.

    No picture......

    You could always remove the cover of the mac mini and use some spray paint to paint the outer cover......just make sure to mask off the cd slot and IR window.

    Yeah with the vinyl make sure you slit it for the slot and the IR as well, the bonus of vinyl being that you can recover it with any design you want then remove it and leave no sign you had ever done it.

    CHeck out something like the PVC sheeting listed below. Some places carry it in all different colors. I have used a similar product before, You can cut, saw, cold and hot bend, paint, and silk screen it. The below supplier offers it in 0.120" and 0.240" thivkness. You could probably just cut a piece to fit and velcro it over the Mini.

    Any place that makes banners or signs could hook you up cheap.

    on Skin it you can choose custom image and select just a plain color

    I retract that, I just thought you could because I did for my wife's laptop but that is not an option for the mini
