I thought my new XPS m1530 tuxedo black was a little bland,
so I painted mine Metallic ruby red. Sort of in-between the Current XPS m1530 & the older XPS 1710 style.
I took my sweet time masking it perfectly, then I painted 4 coats of primer,
4 coats of base, sanded in-between w/2000 grit and then 2 coats of clear,
then I baked it with a heat lamp between coats. (Four feet above the lid)


Primer: 4 coats, one hour between, light 2000 grit sanding in-between

Base coat: 4 coats, light 2000 grit sanding in-between

(Base coat was Ruby Red Metallic by Dupli-Color Auto Spray)

Clear: 2 coats over red/black/silver to blend in.
