Why dont you just get one of those Wii skins like from this site here!
Yeah,just thought it would be less of a hassle than taking the Wii apart! Seems to be a drastic measure to get a new look Wii.
But each to their own! And variety is the spice of life.Besides white is very boring LOL.
I recall that ModderMan started a thread some time ago in the Wii News Announcement forum about the black Wiis. In the subsequent thread was a mention of the Chameleon 2 case replacements for the Wii. There was a choice of about 8 LED colors that shine through the case mod and one multicolor option where the LEDs rotate through the series of colors.
Looks like there was already a tutorial on disassembling the Wii. But I would prefer to see the one I submited, which was a step-by-step guide (with detailed photos & simple instructions). Hope this helps anyone looking to modding there case or even installing a mod-chip.
