Project: Pirate Laptop (19 Oct 05) - Completed!!! Discussion Thread: (fixed) http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=98993 For those of you who remember me you might know that the logo for my web site (PCMOFO) is a skull and swords. I got bored a few months ago and printed out the same logo in blue onto sticker paper and put it on the lid of my laptop to see how it looked. After living with it for a while I decided I liked it and wanted to make it more perminate. after toying with the idea to just paint the lid I decided I would just take the whole laptop apart and paint everything but the bottom. here is the laptop and here is the lid First I took the keyboard off and here is the 14.1" screen out of the plastic casing. here is the main board with everything else removed from the bottom This is the main focus of the mod. the top plastic piece. Notice the silly dell logo and pointless raised areas on the lid? we will have to get rid of those. Here is the lid after a run in with my dremmel then I slapped some bondo on it. the bondo is currently drying so when that gets done I will do some sanding and see what kinda results I get from my first bondo exp. In the mean time here is the layout of the parts that I will be sanding and painting. (that orange peel finish will look like crap if I dont sand it smooth first) thats it for now. let me know what ya think. I am thinking about colors now, black for the case and dark blue for the skull n swords?
