I have an iBook clamshell (Indigo) that is for the most part, complete. My only issue is that it's missing the leaf from the Apple logo on the front of the case... I've tried like mad to find a replacement that I can snap/glue in there, but I can't find anything. Anyone have any good ideas on where I could grab one for cheap?

Yeah eBay is a wasteland... You put in "iBook clamshell" and you get a ton of listings for uber overpriced iBooks that are "SUPER CUSTOMIZED" because someone switched their parts around to make a multi-colored iBook. You can't find lids anywhere. I'd love to get my hands on at LEAST a lid if not a logo so I could make my iBook complete. :pb:

yeah I tried to find a good one to link you on there and only came across the snow ibook :-(

if the apple is the same size as the apple on macbooks though you can get away with a vinyl decal if you scrape the glue out of the indent.

What color are you looking for?

 

As I posted earlier, it's an Indigo iBook. :lol: So, yeah if you can find an indigo logo, that'd be win.

 

if the apple is the same size as the apple on macbooks though you can get away with a vinyl decal if you scrape the glue out of the indent.

 

That would normally work if the backing was flat, but the clamshell iBooks actually have a diamond-shaped backing for the leaf for more gripping power in the case. And since I like my collection pieces as original as I can get, only the original-style plastic logo would do.

 

On a side note, there needs to be an iMac (Bondi Blue) and an iBook smiley. In this forum. ASAP. :pb:
