Q: Why aren't you sanding it before hand?
One or two deviants posted a comment asking why I didn't sand it. I (or my dad) actually did when he accidentally spilled some paint drops onto it but it didn't seem like much. He only sanded down some areas and the others were left alone and recoated the clear rubber spray coated. It's been past two or three weeks now and no paint is peeling or rubbing off and good as new.
Long story short, if you want to sand it, paint holds better so it should be longer lasting--but I disagree with some who claim the paint's going to start peeling after a week or two because mine isn't. Do what you want :0

Q: What laptop is this?!
Sony Vaio PCG TR2L (2004), 11 x 7.6 x 1.4" with a 10.6" screen that weighs 3.1 lbs.

...idk D: that's what the info says.



As a thank you for 10 million views, I present you with a random tutorial 'u' !

Despite all the drama people are making for no reason over pageviews, I really thank everyone for visiting my page and leaving me nice comments about my work :] ^__^ Thanks guys!

I've never seen a laptop repainting tutorial so it seemed intresting when my dad asked me if I wanted to. LOL. I know most people tend to just buy a new laptop once theirs seem old or out of date (which is how we got that laptop shown above in the tutorial; my dad is in the computer business) but seriously D: If it works and does the job, why would you get a new one? '-';

If you have any questions concerning this, leave a comment, no need to note me ^^ :]

And I apologize for some of the blurry images D: I didn't know they were blurred until after I put them on the computer ._.;;

wow very useful. im getting a brand new hp laptop. idk if u know about them but there the ones with the little bubble design...its cool and all...but kinda.... (girly-ish...shh!!). well anyway i want to make it white. with silvery sort of designs. do u have any suggestions on how to make fine/delicate designs? also i dont have that much experience with paints so i was wondering if regular old spray paint was ok. (in my limited experience ive seen spray pain come out sort of...sticky when it dries...)

Now I can't wait for my laptop to be thrown everywhere LUL.

I'll definitely try this someday <3 Maybe when I get some paint for my laptop. What should I draw though? 8D

OK, what if you have an HPtouchsmart and it doesn't have hinges, it swivels.
RainCookie's avatar
Hmm... good question D:

Does this tutorial work for macbooks? I know that they have a smoother surface than books like vaios...
RainCookie's avatar
I'm not exactly sure because macbooks usually have clear thick plastic over the actual color (or so with the ones I've seen)

I can't say for sure :c sorry
