I don't really know what steel you're talking about. Is it like diamond plate?

I wanted to diamond plate my garage once. That stuff is like $200 a sheet. That idea went out the window REAL fast.

Sorry to drag this thread back up, but I found a similar laptop in the tip, and am wondering how it worked out for you.

My one even has a broken opening latch like yours, but on the other side.

It's really cool. I'm hoping to use it as a portable gaming rig for Doom 2. It doesn't even have an ethernet port!
