    A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Really makes me want to try something on mine but I have never done it before so a bit weary of using my baby as a test subject for a rook like me:)

    I’m pretty happy. It came out great. If you’ve never done it before I wouldn’t use your machine as a test though. I’ve failed on a few machines before I got to this stage.

    Forgot to ask, is it a pain taking the cover off of the lcd? I.e. is there any risk of breaking the panel?

    It couldn't be easier on this one. 4 screws. You have to pry the alien head and front edge bar off the lid which is a pain though. I'll have to re-glue the edge lip to the lid. I should have just taped it off

    Awesome, I will be moving house in the new year, so when I finally get my man cave I might just give this whole paint job thing a go:)

    I'm glad I didn't start with this machine. Practice on anything you can
