Have a suspicion you're going to sell this lappy at the best possible price.

Good luck.. ;)

It will react with Plastic, Why not use some stick on Fablon from Wilkinsons

hi thanks to all that replied
i am not selling the laptop it's just got scratched i used to make wooden toys (when i was not busy at the shopfitting) and did a lot of spraying i thought perhaps someone had tried to spray one and what paint they used, when i built the areoplane kits plastic was painted quite succsessfully thanks again Chippy

Take a good look at the PLASTCOTE range sold in B&Q and Wilkinsons - formulated for plastics.
