Default Murdered out my Macbook (Pics Inside)

Something i've been wanting to do for awhile. I didn't take a real professional approach to it, so it's something anyone can do at home if they want.

Instead of taping up my macbook in all the small areas, I just bought a clear plastic cover for my laptop that clips on the top screen and onto the bottom.

You can use plasti-dip. It's a removable rubber coating thats great for metal, plastic, or glass. Comes in a spray can. I've used it on the emblems on my car and there hasn't been a single sign of it fading or peeling off and it's been over 6 months. It can be found just about anywhere. I went to Lowe's and purchased "FlexiDip" and it's pretty much the exact same thing.

So I started by just applying some coats. Did about 10 coats, which doesn't take long cause it dries rather quickly. Once I got the coating to the way I wanted and it was dry, I just clipped the cover back onto my macbook.

I know people will be like "Oh but the inside is still silver what the?" .... look if you want to paper/tape up your screen and keyboard by all means go for it. It will look a lot cooler but I just didn't feel like getting possible overspray on my macbook today and making more work for myself. I already had these covers so I started by painting them first. Maybe in the future i'll do the whole thing, but this simply prevented me from screwing up perfectly good looking macbook.













I could've taken a better final picture. Now that it's in the house, and super dry and all I think it looks much better than the picture I posted. Owell.

Wondering why you didn't just buy a black plastic case?

Depending on how many cans it took...his way was cheaper.

Well he still bought a clear plastic case.

Why not just buy a black one?

Ahhh...actually missed the part where he said he bought a case. I thought he just painted the laptop as is.

Still possible that what he bought came out cheaper than $50 I guess. And maybe he likes the rubber coating as opposed to the plastic one.

True. I actually have a black case on my macbook. I've had it for over 3 years now. Was just wondering if there was some sort of benefit to his method.

sometimes plasticoat has a "grippy" texture, kinda like the rhino lining for truck beds, but not as aggressive, this could have been what he was going for. Or it could have been something just for kicks, to see how it would look if he did it as opposed to a pre made thing.
