    I’ve been working on this respray for a while. I’ve had a few setbacks but she’s just about perfect now. I just need to install an activated Windows 10 OS and she’s good to go. I’ll get some photos in the sunlight tomorrow when I not drunk.

    Looks amazing man!

    Do you mean the rubbery bit or just the plastic thing around the keyboard?

    Thanks Mike. It took months of failed attempts but finally got there. I mean the plastic/metal bezel around the keyboard. Did it on my wife’s machine.

    Yes I think you should, it would contrast nicely with the rest. I love the black and white feel of it too, futuristic hi-tech!

    Nice... people might mistake it for an Area-51 on steroids now.

    If it will be used for gaming in the dark... the white ring might be distracting. Not to mention dirt magnet...

    I've put it up on Gumtree as is. I've been working on this for months so I decided I've spent enough time on the old girl.
