Intro: Laptop Lid Mod
.this 6 years old laptop of mine needs to have a new look. the back was so plain and simple, so i added a new and personal glowing logo.
Step 1: Disassemble and Carving
create your logo.
disassemble your laptop ,remove the lcd from the housing
copy your logo to the housing.
cut the foil on the back of your housing enough for your logo
now cut your logo through the housing, i used a cutter and exacto knife
now you can see your logo through and through place a plexiglass on the inside of the housing. color of the glowing logo depends on the color of the plexiglass.
Step 2: Fix
my laptop webcam wires are blocking the logo so i have to extend the wires to make it go around my logo
Step 3: Reassmble
reassemble your laptop and your done.
if you failed to cut the logo without scratching the housing you need to rapaint your laptop or you can just put a carbon fiber sticker to cover the scratches
