I'm in the process of repairing/rebuilding a broken Alienware 17 I found on ebay. When it arrived I found it had a dead 880M so I replaced it with a 780M and got her working. Now I am giving her a fresh new look with a gloss white paint job. All parts have been primed and painted and now it's just clear coating. The main chassis and bottom base cover are actually complete but the LCD lid is taking a little longer to get perfect. I've taped up the areas that will be left black. I am basically getting rid of the ugly grey areas. It should be completed this weekend.

Mod complete. I am very happy with how it turned out. Definitely my best effort so far.

Somebody like the color of the new m15/m17 LOL. I would do black or red pearl metal as my car.
