If you want first class spray paint in the UK, you might look into Belton Molotow. If I remember, its a german manufacture, but its true artists color. Bout the best there is in the can world. I've sprayed with their colors in the past, and they're definitely pretty
Electricity tastes good. No, seriously.
Whitlock, its good to see you in the forums! Dying plastic is way cool, I used to do that when I was a kid and built R/C cars. Its a great way to get custom parts that no one else has and they are durable. Krylon is a good spray, but may I suggest you try the dying first.
I'm after durability over colour to be honest. I need something that isn't going to scratch, chip or stick to itself. Some heat resistance too. Dye does sound a good option. Is there any preparation necessary.
You're doing exactly what I've been pondering for a long while. A first gen MacBook is something around 700 bucks (for bare minimum) which is relatively cheap considering the re-sell value of Apple laptops that age. I wanted to buy one and dye it, backlight the keys (single SMT LED per key would work. I'd just need a MacBookAir keyset I'd imagine, but I digress..) max the RAM and HD, and wa-lah! Ultimate MacBook. I ordered 15 boxes of RIT Black and 10 boxes of RIT Red from eBay, plus a shiny (2 year old) MacBook White (2.0Ghz Gen 1.5), 3GB DDR2 and a 200GB 7200RPM SATA drive today! If I end up dying it before you do, I'll post the pictures.
I have a white MacBook, dyed mahogany... I have the pictures, too...
SIGH, yeah, I really need to get on that mod guide. How are we doing the mod guides these days? Text document with references to the photo names, or can I go ahead and send you an html document which you can open in FF, complete with loading images?
