I just figured everyone has put out painting mod guides, so I will just show the finished work. As always, the masking was the most important step. I used Pectra trim tape that allows you to curve around the laptop. It was about $3.00 for 20 feet, but it saved alot of time by not having to tear little masking tape pieces to fit around the curves. I also cleaned the whole body with concentrated goo gone before I painted, I usually use it to refinish the rubber parts, but it cleans the plastic good too. The screws I painted just to accent the color a little, without making it look cheap. I'm sure the rubber feet had a purpose, but this laptop is just for internet at this point, so if it gets trashed I just have an excuse to buy a new one.
