    Rubber coating peeling on lid.

    When I was cleaning up my G75VW I noticed a small, but noticeable, cosmetic flaw. The rubber coating was beginning to peel on the left corner of the lid. I am curious how I can resolve this. It's bothering me a great deal...thanks in advance.

    Will that part totally stick out from the rest of the lid? I want this to look just like it is supposed to.

    Potentially put a dot of super-glue on the frame under the coating and press the coating back into place? Just a thought.

    I guess when I said peeling it made it sound like it was all there still. My problem is that a half an inch of rubber coating on the corner is completely gone, and it's driving me insane...and by gone I mean I am able to see the plastic cover of the lid.

    It's the first cosmetic flaw I have had on this puppy. I guess it's like they say, "the first cut is the deepest." I saw some carbon fiber decals online. I'm not sure what to think of them yet, though. They're from DecalRUS.

    Odd. After two years of heavy use, my G53SX has only built up quite a layer of skin oil (its shiny ) and some bread crumbs in the keyboard. No missing paint or anything. Still, the plastidip job that @rewben did looks like a good way to do it! It's turned out really well, congratulations @rewben!

    haha thanks @Zygo!

    i am a careless kind of person. additional protections must be in place to prevent scratches. for instance, my g55. i brought it along to overseas and carried it around very often. it has battle scars all over the body in one and a half years. now it looks more macho than ever

    nevertheless, it never failed on me. it's impressive.
