I can't leave the ASUS Blu-Ray drive face stock! Esp after defacing and distressing everything else....lol. ...My
video tutorial shares all of the steps in painting your Optical drive face
, you can apply these same steps in painting any plastics..
Following the DIY steps in the link I shared above, I painted the drive face the Metallic Blue I applied to the exterior and interior of the case.
I applied 1/4" Auto Body Masking Tape, side by side, only cause it was only thin tape I had on hand... in diagonal pattern after the Metallic Blue Lacquer paint had cured for 1 hour...
I applied Matte Black Lacquer paint....
After 30 minutes, I removed the 1/4" masking tape..
Lacquer paint cures pretty fast... 30 minutes later I covered the Matte Black with same tape again.
Next, I applied combination very light coats of Gloss Orange and Metallic Gold paint
After 15 minutes, I used a wire brush to create scratches to simulate heavy usage of time...
Red / Maroon Scotchbrite Pad
to smooth and mute down the scratches
Ready to re-install!
