Hey, I just painted my laptop 2 tone black and green. and I was wondering If any hak5 members have any suggestions on what I should paint on the front? I was thinking something fairly simple I could print out, E-acto it out tape it on and spray it (use it like a stencil).

Oh, and BTW I plan on clearing over the whole thing after I paint it on anyways, I could rub it out and get a really really good finish.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, and if you can upload a picture I can print out and use!

Thanks in advance,

Hak.5 logo? that would be pretty kool... if you run linux a penguin would be cool... id go for the hak.5 logo with a lil penguin in the corner... or do you have a fav sports team...? or a band

just think of something you like and find a logo for it...

Look at an episode of systm where Dave Randolph paints a water droplet pattern on a laptop cover. I've done basic painting on auto's for years and finally took the opportunity a couple of years ago to paint my basic beige case a semi-gloss black then taped out a tribal flame pattern and painted that in a type of candy purple. Didn't turn out to bad.

seeing as the 0.3 acer aspire webcam is junk i removed it and butchered the case.

so now it looks like this:

i make signs for a living so i can make you a stencil if you want. i made a stencil of mine and cut it out with a dremel so the lcd backlight shows through. fun project that i dont recommend trying
