Did you know that the original silver case Coco 1s are actually black plastic 
with the silver paint sprayed on?  Years ago, someone's case got scratched 
up, so he took it apart and bathed both halves of his case in paint stripper.  
And got a shiny midnite black Coco!  It twisted a lot of heads when brought to 
a meeting.

But given the blah white/beighe/whatever yellow case II and III models, I 
agree that a lime yellow or fire truck red paint job could be a real worthwhile 
addition :-)  --Mike K.
