    Silver Carbon Fiber Macbook Cover
    Alrigh so i spent my weekend overlaying my macbook case in Silver carbon fiber (i have a white macbook) or else i would of done black carbon fiber. The picture is just the stage im in... i still need to do another layer of epoxy over the CF weave and then hit it with some clear coat... tell me what you think...

    I worked on this saturday night... still got some things left to do to it to complete. what do you guys think? i wanted something different... and i saw a guy did a carbon overlay and though that was cheesy so i did it with the real thing...

    It looks pretty cool to me. I'd like to see it in person(i think it probally looks a bit better in person then in the photo?).

    Same here.

    And I hope it wasn't under warranty...

    Since carbon fiber is reflective, the photo looks a little bit weird to me. Do you think you could get a better picture without the backlighting? Did you just coat your MacBook with resin and then lay the fiber over it? I am wondering how you went about doing it...

    it is reflective.. i just used the window to show the apple logo... im going to dremel that out... I bought used covers off ebay to do this... and not on my own cover. I first sanded down the cover and then mixed my epoxy... i let the epoxy sit on the cover for about 2-3 hours before i layed the Silver CF( its actually fiberglass with a coat over it.. no such thing as silver CF ...... in person its very reflective.... the process took about 12 hours and probably another 8 for the final process of clear coating and all that.... i think it looks nice and its something different. I'm in search of a black macbook case to do this with my Plain Weave black CF. Does anyone have interest in this and willing to purchase it if i overlayed them?

    I remember seeing a black carbon fiber overlay on a Macbook a couple weeks back. That looked pretty cool, definitely original.

    Have you finished the work yet? I would love to see a picture of the final product. Did you take pictures during the process? Maybe you could do a build log for us full of pictures. I'm sure people would love to see you go about your work, I know I would :black:
