Default Colored Back

OK, Last night I got this great idea, and it worked!

You can spray paint the back of a Sansa and it looks pretty nice. I spray painted mine white. (I used this white colored spray on enamel made for wood and metal)

1. Just unscrew the back 4 screws
2. Once you have the back off, take it outside on a cardboard box (or newspaper, etc.)
3. Before you spray it, I recommend sanding it down a little first with a very fine sandpaper. I KNOW that it scratches it, but you'll cover it up anyways right? (You don't have to do this step, but I didn't try without sanding, so that's why I say "recommend")
4. dr_howardfine suggests that you put it in the oven at 250F for 10 minutes before you spray so that the paint sticks on better.
5. Take the color and spray away! I'd recommend white, because white on black on blue is a nice color scheme.
6. Leave it there for 45 minutes or so and it'll be dry
7. After it completely dries, you should add a layer of clear coat so it doesn't scratch off, well and for shininess! (Also suggested by dr_howardfine)

After it dries, you can even get a different color and a stencil and spray on a pattern!
