Introduction: DIY Custom Matt Black Macbook Pro - Plasti Dip

Macbook pro retina display with Rust-Oleum Peel Coat (Like Plasti Dip)

1) Mask off ports

2) Clean Surface

3) Sprayed five coats of Peel Cost ( More = Thicker finish)

Step 1: Mask Out Ports

1 coat every 10-15 mins

I did a total of 5 coats

Step 6: Peel Off the Logo

Peel off the logo 10-15 minutes after the last coat.

You can start using it but if you want it to last longer allow it to dry for 24 hours before using your computer

    You are a risk taker indeed! I treat my MBP like a new born baby!

    But if it just peels off, then won't it start peeling off as you open and close it a lot and all that? Seems like it would just start looking junky after a short time.

    brilliant idea! have you peeled off the paint to verify that it hasn't stuck to the surface? My wife and I have identical macbooks for work and we've gotten them switched up before. I want to try this asap!

    You should make a video if you already haven't!

    Did you need to cut the paint around the logo or anything like that? What kind of tool did you use to peel off the logo paint?

    Hi,

    Since this is a peel able paint you don't have to worry about masking the logo. The logo is slightly indented and the plasti dip creates a separate layer which you can easily rip off. But make sure you peel it off before it drys fully
