    Alright, so here's the skinny...

    I'm on this HP Notebook.. it hold up, Free 8.2
    gigs out of 20, whatever. That's not the deal.


    I'm thinking about completely re-doing this entire
    thing. I wanna take it all apart (if neccessary)
    basically and re-design how the whole thing
    looks. I'm guessing oil paints will probably be
    the best bet as far as weathering goes (?)...
    especially since I wanna put different letters
    on the keys. What colors does one-shot come
    in?

    Anyone done anything like this?

    I'd like to see pictures if you have.. if not,
    fuck it, disregard and I'll figure it out...

    and shit like that. I ain't no sissy faggot who
    goes on the internet and joins forums for the
    type of people who sneak out after dark to
    write their names on shit. Fuck that homesquat,
    find me direct at www dot self medicating in the
    club direct dot comski. Holla. Straight being
    tailed by soviets and shit trying to punch
    trees in the eyes for talking shit behind my
    back. Fucking catchers. Catchers man fucking.
    As if the fucking lease will hold up that long
    on a 90 day contractual platform without a
    grace period or some sort of APR. Dynamic
    Sci-FI and color thesis like I mean, fuck those

    sorry man, if you were on a PC I'd tell you to nab a window kit and
    some decals, but idk what you could do to make a laptop look better.

    good luck

    on the FYI.. in regards to the DIY


    one shot is enamel.. not oil..

    and that sounds like a bad idea.

    with an older laptop of mine i covered it with faux wood laminate i got from home depot.. you can even put it on the mouse finger pad and itll still work..

    it looks the best if you also laminate your fone and all books you are carrying with the same laminate.. while rocking real tree.. and only real tree... hunting camoflague... except no subsitutes such as mossy oak.. or such hooplah.

    What you're doing is called Case Modding, it's pretty big with desktops these days. Check out that link, it has all step by step directions and shit for painting your laptop a different color.

    Google search "laptop case modding" and you'll get some good stuff.

    the real wood one would be nice if he used some good wood..

    he used PINE...who the fuck uses pine... thats just crap...

    in concept though.. quite nice.. although the idea of a wooden laptop.. sounds horrible..


    id go for a nice hardwood like teak.. personally..


    this is for real the guy who made that custom jobbie off the same site
