How can I get this to look better and one black color

#1 Post by Smack2k » Thu Sep 05, 2019 6:41 pm

This is an IBM T40 Laptop I have. As you can see from the photo, the lid is a mess and came that way to me. Otherwise, it works great. I put a new HDD in it, installed Windows 98 and some other software and it runs like a champ...but this lid is KILLING me...what can I do to try and make it better?

Plasti-Dip would be a last option for me.....I am not great with even layers of paints / dips and I know I'd mess up trying to cut out the IBM Thinkpad part on the top of the lid....

I have tried Plastx / Chrome Cleaner / Toothpaste / Mother's Wax and nothing...The thing is smooth as silk on top but looks like crap.....HELP!!!
