Looks really great! I never got the chance to reskin one of my calc using paint before. The only reskinning I did was using stickers from Skinit in 2011 for my Casio Prizm, during a promotion. I also made an hand-drawn label for my older 83+ that shows the 2002 and 2003 Omnimaga logos.
Well, in fact, reskinning using stickers is a much safer way, and it's much more cheaper than using spray cans.
maybe next time I will use stickers. I'm a lazy guy (LOL)
Stickers really need to be good quality though, else they end up peeling off or being torn apart. Skinit stickers cost money but the 2011 Casio promotion where we entered our calc serial allowed us to get free stickers. They're very solid and mine have never peeled off so far. In my case, I use Quebec Nordiques (former ice hockey team that was my favorite back in the 90's)-themed stickers.

I've got an apple sticker (the kind that comes with all iPods iPads etc.) on mine and it hasn't peeled at all either. I call my calc a "maculator"  :P

The Chinese is completely different from the English :P
English seems somewhat censored...
But the Chinese is what I'm used to (My class says weird things[no offense{They're worse}]) But I sort of expect everything in Chinese to be like that so :P

I have been planning to do something like this. Is there a specific type of paint you recommend?
Edit: Nevermind. You answered my question above  ;D

What would be cool is a 84+CSE case with stuff that glows in the dark so it's easy to find your calc at night or when power goes out and you want to code. :P

Only prob would be if your 84PCSE ran out of batteries earlier and it was barely charged :P

True but that would still not stop the calc from glowing in the dark (assuming special paint was used). Plus most people would probably use common sense and charge the calc if they notice it's almost dead and that they plan to use it soon. :P

How about glow in the dark paint with glow intensity in direct correlation to the amount of charge in the calculator :D

Now if only that was possible that would be awesome. :P

As long as it doesn't glow so much that the bedroom is lit like during daytime via sunlight :P

I know that, I was just saying something like that the calc's glowing, you pick it up, and find out it's dead :P

You shall have no more sleep. You shall code until you collapse from exhaustion. :trollface:
