Ok I know this isn't really a custom Mando but its close enough I thought I would put it here. Insted of in the off topic or one of the other sections. Any way here we go.
So The paint has been slowly wearing off my 3ish year old laptop and about the middle of this past summer I began to toy with how I should repaint my little friend. To start with I thought steampunk complete with little armor plates but. But when I got the case apart and really started trying out patterns nothing looked good because of the beviled edges on my case. I was also afraid of putting my rivet/screw to far in and leaving something to poke the back of my LCD. So I started thinking of engraving the back of my case. I considered lots of different things, I finally decided to go Star Wars. Why not? Most of my backgrounds and themes are Star Wars, why not my case? Any way I have recently started in earnest with my custom Mando, and I have always loved the Mandalorian "Jaing Head" emblem so I decided to put it on the back of my computer case. Then I had the great idea, "you know the back of LCD screens lights up bright and I could use that to make a back lit skull. So I cut a hole in the back of the screen case using my dremmel and exacto-knife (for the finer parts which took for EVER). Strangely the hardest thing in this whole endeavor was actually trying to find red tented or red opaque plastic. I never realized how few red items are out there. I finally found a dish for a bubble wand that would work after about 3 weeks of looking. Tonight I put the case most of the way back together and here is the result. I still have a lot of little things left to do to the case including a battle scared paint job, and the adding of a USB port and perhaps building in a card reader or jumpdrive for a second hard drive. But that will have to wait tell summer when I don't have so much home work.
Any way enough talking here are the pictures.
And now for the REALLY COOL ONE.
