My First Case Mod MBP-Full Metal Alchemist Design - 05/27/08 09:08 AM

Hey everyone this is my first post here on Macmod, and it is about my success at painting my MacBook Pro. I am really looking for some input on what you think or advice for any future projects, thanks for any input.

Here are some pictures. The symbol is from the full metal alchemist anime, the philosophers stones transmutation circle "Scar's Tattoo"

nice man! Looks like you need some clearcoat on that thing though. Also, I dunno, I probably would have saved the apple logo somehow or worked it into the design somehow.

Good work though.

ditto to the above. i would have ditched the 'figure 8' in the middle. if you enlarge the pattern a bit, that would leave the apple logo in the middle of the piece. badass apple tat sorta thing...

anyway, great job.

That's sweet man! I agree that it would look better with a clear coat on it. What's the bottom look like?

Nice design :o)

I should mention here that if you use Krylon fusion, you won't need to clearcoat, as it always dries to a smooth finish.

Have you seen the Cylon women from the new series?!
I find myself wishing Krylon looked more like Cylon :P

I love the Krylon paint, it's a lifesaver for my poor DIYer efforts.

AndrewJames, NabbyTom, watch it with the posts. I don't think its coincidence that you have a signature link attached with a 1 post rating. I know how SEO works. We'll let it slide this time. Don't do it anymore.

Nice job!!

I really like the design work..

And the original idea for the design.

But i wouldn't have painted the apple logo on the back of the lcd in fact i would have got some plastic stain and stained the logo red keeping it see through.

But nice job anyways.

Red and black colors are really good choice for that style, my thought.

Dude, Im sorry but I cant say the same as the rest of the people on here. That spray paint job is good but what on earth are you doing spraying your macbook pro??? Good god, I would never get paint anywhere near my mac! Are you mad?

Cool Graph Tho...

Seems to be getting worse. Also, edfresh, I felt similarly about my MacBook for a long time. But, then, you don't hang around MacMod because you're anti mac modding, do you?

I agree that clear coat and leaving the apple image are good ideas.

A very nice color to choose, it looks good and its good to see people taking it to a higher level of customization, Red & Black good colors mate!
