Spraying a laptop lid - Mark - 10-07-2011 02:18 PM

Just a couple pictures of me spraying one of my laptops lid. This was a very quick job, I could of done it a lot better, I also ran out of black spray...

Make sure to cover up the bits that you're not spraying, ideally you take the thing apart so that you just have the lid. This makes the process 10x longer.

2 coats of primer. Yes.. i sprayed on top of that half ass job.

Coat of black, this is where it pretty much ran out.

Keep going with the black, and clear cloat it if wanted.

Not my best job, but it's better than it was.

I would make sure that the paint sticks to plastic well. You might also want to check to see what the heat index of the paint is. If you leave your laptop in a car when it is hot out, it could melt to the bag if it is not the right kind of paint.
