I think it has been repainted before. I havn't seen any yellow 1st gen 3s's. I would personally paint it the factory color.SilverBullet said:Leave it yellow. that is a rare color. if it's needing to be repainted, repaint is the same color. Besides.. a good paint job that's a different color will cost MAD money.. what a waste of money (unless you have it shooting out your nose).
