Well since I got me a couple of parts MacBooks A1181 and I had been wanting to paint mine for a while I went ahead and bit the bullet and did it.Just thought some people might want to see what all I did not really a guide just some pics.

Will do...Chipping is what I was worried about so I put 3 coats of krylon fusion on it then 3 coats of a high grade clear coat.Either way its kind of just kind of my hobby computer.
