How to fix a crack in the body of the laptop ¶ 

Step 1:

Make sure the damaged area is clean and free of dirt and loose pieces.

Step 2:

Then prepare the putty. It comes as a cylinder with two components wrapped

around each other. Just cut a section off and twist the parts together. Then mix the

two putty components completely with gloves because of the chemicals in the material.

Step 3:

Press it firmly into the hole in the case and use your finger or a razor blade to

shape it to follow the contour of the case. When it covers the area, take the flat side of

a razor blade or back of a ruler and compress the outer surface to flatten it. Any excess

putty can be wiped off the case with paper towel before it dries. Then wait for an hour

or two to let it dry.

Step 4:

Press the putty into the damaged area and flatten the outer surface.

Step 5:

Finally steps are sanding the dried patch with increasingly finer sandpaper and

painting it to match the case.
