Want to customize my iPod with spray paint! Some questions...help?
Ok I want to spray paint my ipod nano on the outside. It is a 2nd generation.

I was just wondering what spray paint you recommend, where I could buy it and how long it would take to dry.

Any help or suggestions are appreciated thanks

I would use the automotive stuff from like Autozone its more durable or if you want a fancy paint you can check Wal-Mart and get the House of Kolor and do a candy color not all Wal-Marts hve this paint but it will be in the model car section. The HOK paint is a tad bit exspensive but it looks great and with the clear coat it will be very strong. No mater what you get I would get a clear plastic case to put it in or it will just start to flake off.

edit: Also since its the metal case get some fine grit sand paper from like home depot and scuff the whole ipod so the paint will stick other wise it will just peel right back off. If you get the automotive or HOK use a primer so the paint will stick also even with the primer you still need to scuff it up with sand paper.

only scuff the parts to be painted not the screen and primer is a gray paint that will help the paint stick to the metal better. The primer is not a must but will help to make the paint last a little longer
