stickers on my mac pro

Ok, I'm going to admit upfront this is a trivial question. With that being said, here goes. My mac pro has a few scratches on it. No really deep gouges or anything, just very noticeable scratches. I bought it used so I"m not tripp'n to hard. Instead of "fixing" them ( read doing something stupid to F-up my machine) I figured I would do what kids do, put stickers over them. Now comes the fun part. Dose anyone know where to find any large apple related stickers. something that would cover a complete side would be great.

I think you're still thinking too "adult" about this. The "kids" would cover it with many stickers from DC Shoe, the "Shocker" hand gesture, that grenade thing and a bunch of garage band stickers... not try to cover it all in one massive sticker.

I may have to come down from my "adult" perch. One large sticker is harder to find than I thought unless I want something big enough for a car door (chuckle)

Car decals could work very well, and bumper stickers

A moment of silence for the defiling of beauty.

I'd be a little nervous about covering an aluminum body mac with anything from paint to stickers. such things can work to insulate the case and keep it warmer with the fans working harder.

one side probably won't be an issue, more might be.

You could just get a large sheet of white carbon fiber vinyl and cover the panel.

I put stickers on my portables but not the big mac. There is something pleasant about causing chaos with a MBP, sorta like a stick in the eye to Mr. Ive

There you have it folks - the future of this forum

Maybe Mel Gibson will star in a Mad Max movie (set in 2020) about outlaws desperately scrounging for parts for their Mac Pro 1,1. Searching for a stash of NOS Mac Pro parts so they can keep their systems running as they type in comments about how Apple let then down in 2013.

How 'bout veneer?

Wood grain MacTac and you could cut out whatever logo you wanted using an Exacto knife. Or just stick on one of those Apple logo stickers that I seemed to get with everything.
Better yet get some real wood veneer and rubber cement it to the panels creating a Woody. It's pretty easy as the panels are flat.

Just make sure you use a good polish and keep it out of the sun!

Wait a while and buy a new (old) case. They should be cheap. Or not...
