Custom painted Mini cases
FastMac today announced a full line of custom painted Mac mini cases available for pre-order. Consumers will experience zero downtime, and the company includes all the necessary tools for installation. Colors currently offered include Onyx (black), Chili (red), Bubblegum (pink), Midnight (dark blue), Wasabi (lime), Tangerine (orange), and Retro (beige with an original multi-colored Apple logo). Cases are first cleaned and scuffed with a pre-solvent, followed by a coat of epoxy sealer and four coats of special low solids/high pigmentation aircraft quality paint. A final coat of clear urethane and high gloss completes the process, and all paints are two-part catalyzed. Logos are silk screened on using a special low solids/high pigmentation urethane. The customized cases ship with an installation video and PDF instructions available in English, Japanese, Spanish, French, German, and Italian. Users can pre-order the custom painted cases for $70.
