I've done mine up and was just wondering if anyone else around here has.

Dude you should see Kerm's.

I haven't done anything to mine but I'm planning to because it looks horrible the way it is. But considering the condition the case is in I might be better off buying a broken calculator and swapping some plastic around. Also, anyone thought of a good substitute for those rubber pads that came off the first week or so?

I have some hardcore nonskid rubber pads meant for the legs of furniture on all my calcs. And it turns out that the kind of paint I used was a terrible idea. I'm going to swap out the case with one from a dead calc and try spraypaint this time.

Edit: Here's my calc, btw: http://www.cemetech.net/news.php?290

Hehe...I've been using a liquid Sharpie (give you one guess to the color, and let you know the last time I didn't wear a red shirt was ~2 months ago), but it requires constant touch-ups and it smudges, so I might move to something a little more permanent.

Kerm, do you ever use that for anything other than staring at Smile?

What kind of paint did you use last time Kerm?

Nice calculator Kerm. Mine just look simple in comparison.

I used clear red for the text at the top, clear blue for the sine wave, and clear green for the flames.

The simplicity has quite an appeal, I like it. What kind of paint did you use? I used model-painting paint, by the way. Turns out the varnish I used wasn't a good idea. Razz

dlrohrer2003: I really like your paint job. The colors work and it looks really good on the silver/clear plastic. It looks like you did a good job too.

Yeah, I used Testors clear acrylics which I had left over from my model painting.

Hmm, maybe my paint wasn't the problem then. Perhaps the varnish was wrong - did you use any finish?

If you mean finish as in some kind of clear coat, no. I have had to do a little touch up work on the bottom edge from time to time. That is about all the maintenance I have to do.
