Step 1: Take All Apart
So next stage was take it all apart and move parts that need to be painted aside.
I sanded some of mine but really did not need to be because they where not glossy or any layer that could not be painted over.
In my case when i was taking it all apart i did not really care since laptop does not work any more but be quite careful on where screws go and cables and make sure you can put it all back together when your finished.
Step 2: Paint
paint laptop is quite nice except that i ended up spraying to long in one place and got big blob so had to resand the lot and start again.
when spraying you must use mask, i did not and now am feeling the headake very stupid of me.
spray on layour of paint leave to dry, spray another layouer and then leave to dry.
to protect the paint and also to stop is coming off i sprayed a layour of clear lacker that found on ebay for 10euro this is very potent and you need to make sure it drys before you move it or put your hands near it. I also put two layours of this on.
Step 3: Final Product
final product after clicking everything back together and i have an orange laptop.
