    This is a little mod I did for my daughter when she went off to university last year. She wanted a laptop but did not want us to spend much money, so I thought I would personalise an old P4 Acer that had been well used, leaving the case scratched and broken...

    I thought some kind of skin would be an interesting mod, and a suitable 'donor' was found in the form of an old pair of Emma's designer jeans.

    Sorry if this is less a project log than a selection of pictures of the finished article, but if I can find the rest of my build up pics I'll add them to the post!

    Note the way I used the bum out of the jeans on the back of the screen, the pockets still work and she hangs her keys off the belt loops...

    Sweet, great idea!
    I bet that would look good in suede. Like a black or blue.

    [Edit] Question - Can you get it to shut?
