[Chimera-users] color side chain only

Hello, this is Ming Zhou at NCI-Frederick, Maryland. I am trying to use Chimera to make some ribbon structure figures. I am wondering how I can display only side chain (without backbone) for a specific residue.
Usually, if I display the residue, select the residue at the Atom specifier and color it. The color would be partially on the ribbon structure too since the backbone of that residue is on the ribbon. How do I avoid coloring backbone, only color the side chain?

Thank you very much.
