M1730 Can bezels on lid be swapped out?

I don't like my choice of "red" as the color of the bezels (is that the right word?) on my laptop's lid.  I wish I had been able to get either white or gray ones.

 

Is it possible to order inserts of another color from Dell and for me to swap them out?  Alternately, I might even consider taking them off and painting them...has anyone ever removed theirs?  Anyone want to swap red for gray or white?  Robot Very Happy

Click HERE for a white one on ebay. Not a bad price either.

Well drat, I was hoping the red inserts would just pop out and I could put a different set in.  But they seem to be a part of the whole back cover...I'll have to think about whether or not it's worth all the trouble.

 

Thanks for the eBay link anyhow; I may end up going that route.  Smiley Happy
