Y'know, many times I've thought of painting computers, but never to
"fake" a classic, merely to make a computer I liked look good. For
instance, I never liked the dingy (and getting dingier every year)
off-white color of the TRS-80 Model 16 and most later Tandy
equipment. I always thought a Model 4, a 6000HD or a Tandy 2000
would benefit greatly with a trip to the local Earl Scheib outlet
for some nice metalflake or pearlescent coating. No chrome.
