    Hmm.. Surely there is some kind of advanced 3M adhesive on the market that would allow for easy removal from surfaces such as the iPad/MacBook Pro. At that point it would just be the question of 'what' one would apply and less 'how'.

    Yeah, very true..
    Not to mention that you will have a finished product that is all-together unique and irreplaceable! Food for thought, no doubt!

    Hi everyone,

    this is my first post but thought I'd jump in as I wondered if you'd thought of car body wrap. Comes in black white carbon etc and isn't expensive for a massive great sheet and can be shaped to fit the curves and cut with a sharp blade.

    if you want an idea of how to fit car wrap search youtube for geekwraps they've got some good tutorials! (Up to you but I wouldn't use a blow torch as they have in their vids lol)

    hope that helps.

    Pants :D

    Try Griffin, I've got the mil spec rubberized cover that comes with the screen cover. It has a plastic inner shell that protects the iPad itself. This is covered with a rubber cover with flaps covering all the open ports. Love it. http store.griffintechnology.com/ipad/survivor
