    If they'd only offer spray painting in Dell's customizations.... :p

    Still, kudos to the awesome paintwork!

    The OP is being way too modest. He obviously knows far more about painting than the average person. And I'd still consider it a professional job--even if he's not getting paid for it.

    What happens when the chassis of the laptop flexes? my display casing has a lot of flex so i was wondering if this would cause the paint to crack

    Does anyone have any advice for what to use on the palm rests? i want a matte finish

    Also can i paint the touch pad?

    Also is there any clear filler i can use? i want to cut a design out of the lid and make it glow :)

    Its been about 2 years now since I completed this project and it has been well worth the effort. Attached are the most recent pictures I took today, I apologize for the quality as it was taken with my HTC Touch Pro. Happy modding everyone!:)

    Damn, still looks pretty professional and awesome!

    I am not sure if you answered this but how many clear-coats have you put on it and have you done the wet-sanding technique per each layer ?

    I am trying to achieve nice glossy-glass alike look without the stickiness but have yet to learn and perfect the technique.

    Thanks!
