A student has just stopped me to ask what kind of paint he should use to mod his laptop for an art project. I told him to go and ask the D&T dept. but they've sent him to ask me. It looks like the lid casing is made of plastic with that 'metal' effect paint?
I told him to avoid anything that contains acetone but he's after a named brand I think as well as a type of paint.
The machine is a Toshiba L10 if that's any use.
He's going to try and achieve an effect like this I believe:

That paint I believe is a scratch resistant organiofunctional Silane in an acrylic based UV Cross linkable Paint.
I asked a friend of mine who mods Laptop shells and PC Cases and thats exactly what he said!

Lol, is that a leg-pull or a genuine answer?! I'll pass that on to the student along with a dictionary!

That is a genuine answer.

I've produced a design I think he should use. It has some sharp go faster stripes and a sweet flame because everybody knows flames make computers super quick!
I'll just leave this here, it would be great if I could get some feedback

It needs furry dice as well - can you do furry dice?

I've emailed the student the answers so far and he's emailed back to say he's going to try and create a reproduction of Hokusai's The Wave:
so it sound like he needs something he can apply with a brush! Why do people have to make life hard for themselves!?

It's nice to see students with a project though, something that they want to do. Kudos if he can pull it off, would look really good!

His is good, I think mine is much better though. He can use it if he wants, I think you should show it to him.

don't forget the spinning Wheel trim add-ons that make it look like your going faster.
Oh, and the blue LED lighting is a must.
I dare you to try adding tinted windows to the laptop too, or maybe add a subwoofer in the back...
