Has anyone bought a kit to change the case? Seen some on ebay and was wondering if anyone would recommend me a kit.

Yep, thats the one I have been looking at. Need a triwing screwdriver too. If I can sell a few things on ebay I will get one I think. If u do first let me know what it like! Same boat as u, all black things now I have upgraded to a elite

Just bought one off ebay. Will take picks of before and after when I get it! Watch this space.....
 
I covered mine in a black vinyl, looks good, but took it off after 6 months.

why did you take it off again?

I see you've done your 360 HD-DVD drive too ;)

Well spotted ;)

The HD drive still has it on, but the Wii was moved to the bedroom, and looked better in white in there.

A cheap and easy mod though, only cost about £5.

I actually stripped my HD-DVD drive down and sprayed it, rather than stickering it up, looks awesome

Right, got it with in a couple of days, very well packaged. The only thing is no instructions!! I will keep it short and say give yourself a couple of hours. It involves a lot of unscrewing little screws which are all different so it would be good to write down where they all go (which I didn't and didn't have a clue which ones went where so had a few left over). For this u will need the Triwing Screwdriver (available from same seller) and a precision screwdriver set. Not only is there lots of little screws to undo u have to take the insides apart quite a lot. I was a little worried at first but it wasn't too bad. It can be very fiddly at times and fat shaky fingers wont do! Here are some pics, happy with results all though it was very fiddly. Some pics a bit crappy, only took quickly

I don't think its perfect like OEM but its not something you look really closely at. For £20 I think its worth it.
