Today I am going to see if I can use Plasti Dip to restore the lid on my Lenovo Thinkpad T430.
My little experiment turned out to be a success. After a quick session of trial and error I was able to successfully apply several coats of Plasti Dip to my laptop to make it look brand new. I found that 5 light coats of dip works best with a drying time of ~ 15-20 mins between each coat.
