    Thanks. The blue one is my main machine but the white one looks really nice. I've been thinking about keeping it and grabbing another 1070 or a 1060 but it's on eBay and Gumtree down here.

    I just bought another 17 R1 today so I may make it another project.

    These are sick!! Great job. I like the blue showing off its metallic flakes under the sun.

    You ever thought about Cerakote? I heard the stuff is military grade and practically indestructible. Would love your next one would be Cerakote Polar Blue with a touch of gloss to it.:bigyes:

    Thanks mate. It's just a pity I don't use the old girl outside but she does look pretty nice.

    Never heard of Cerakote but I'm just having a look now. It looks like they use it on firearms. I got the other 17 yesterday but it's in fantastic condition so I probably won't bother modding it but you never know.

    I believe Cerakote started on firearms because it has to be so damn durable and resilient to scratches and chips. Then I've seen other people have done them to everything else including laptops. Just a thought.

    Dude, I used to owned everyone of your Alienware and now I missed them even more after how good you made them look. Awesome job!

    :)

    It's just a fun side hobby I have in my (rare) spare time after work and the kids and it helps if I can make a few extra bucks to keep the wife off my back. I'm just happy that so many people still enjoy these old machines.

    I appreciate the feedback! Cheers.

    Started work on my M15x while I wait for a new board to come from China.
    Prepped and primed so far before it goes Gloss White.

    Did the first two layers of base coat yesterday. I'll do a light wet sand tonight and throw another light coat on tomorrow. I'll give it a few days to cure and then do the clear coat.

    It should look pretty sharp.
