Hi, Gerson; tudo bem? (is it everything fine?)
Quote:If I am not wrong with the term and with your description (lixa?), wouldn't that be 'sand paper'?
don't know how this is called in English, it is a card with abrasive particles glued on, I used the thinnest one available
About the process: based on your description, depending on the sort of resources available yours is a very good one, surely the best possible with what you have. I have an HP15C that is a truly 'frankenstein': the PCB + case come from an HP11C, the keyboard faceplate was removed and transplanted, comparing the two aluminum bezels the best one chosen I painted with dark metalic gray (spray) and the LCD protection was the best one from the two, too. The fact is that the LCD protection has some sort of coating that greatly enhances the readability, maybe some polymer or silicom compound. I tried many others and found none with the same transparency and lower degree of reflection. It is actually amazing!
And congratulations! Your HP15C looks fine, never mind the photo quality (looks fine to me, too). BTW, what's with this photo? Are you 'hacking' your HP15C?
