Step 2:

Is the plate wider than the computer? This model is a small notebook with 12” screen. The cover measures 11” wide; a standard license plate is 12”. I could have trimmed the edges but I decided folding them over would offer more strength and protection for the display. If your laptop is larger (most are) then you can skip the next few steps. However, if your lid has any curves, find a similarly curved surface, place the plate over it and give the plate a few taps with the rubber mallet until you’ve matched the shape.
What a wonderful idea.
Very intersting and good looking
