    Right now I consider my Wii perfect. It's chipped, got homebrew, etc.--very happy with the software. However cosmetically, my case has scratches, it's missing the some pads and screws, etc. I genuinely want to replace the case. How hard would it be to replace it? Could I just buy a broken Wii and switch the parts?

    I painted my wii case and I can tell you... IT IS HELL TO PUT BACK TOGETHER D:
    When I was all done I was left with extra screws (lol) but I checked all screw holes and they were all filled... I've had no problems with my wii though, works great. Websites such as dealextreme sell white replacement wii cases. Other sites sell case mods like transparent cases, coloured cases, coloured transparent cases, and LED modified cases. If you ever do wish to disassemble your wii right down to the plastic you should follow the XCM case tutorial.
