Default Laptop...new paintjob :)

This week i sanded and repainted my laptop. It's an acer aspire one.

Was originally glossy navy blue, but i made it glossy white. Was pretty fun. Looks really nice.






Sorry for the quality, but they were taken on a phone.

Try another image host. The forum censors a specific set of numbers.

Looks great man, completely changed the way that laptop looked. Now you can call it a special edition.

took it apart, sanded the parts to be painted, painted them with like 10 coats of paint, then waited 24 hours. After that, I covered them with clear coat with multiple layers.

Yeah, I mean bright white like yours, not ugly off white or beige. Yours looks pimp. I'd like to do that to mine but I'm not sure if I'd like to take it apart....
