Amiga A1000 top-case wrap
Regular price £23.00
A pre-cut, fitted vinyl wrap for the plastic top part of the A1000 case.
Ideal for old and unsightly cases or if you just want to protect your original. This wrap fits over the top half of your Amiga and is precisely cut-to-fit (no trimming required).
We have tried to get as close to the original plastic colour as possible but as every case is slightly different it may not be a 100% match for your particular case, so we ask you to bear this in mind when purchasing. Note that heavy damage/scratches may show through the wrap so the surface should be as smooth as possible before fitting.
The wrap is finished in a smooth matt laminate.
Why use a wrap?
Minimal prep: just make sure all surfaces are clean and any loose paint is removed, then apply the wrap. The textured nature of the wrap will hide any minor inconsistencies in the surface.
No drying time: unlike paint, where you will need to wait long periods between coats, the computer is ready to use immediately after fitting.
What do I need?
A clean, dry microfibre cloth and IPA solution: this will allow you to clean the case properly before fitting the wrap. Any dirt and grease on the case may affect adhesion so it's vital that you clean properly first.
A felt-edge squeegee: we do not recommend attempting the fitting with a hard-edge card (like a credit card). A soft-edge squeegee will make things much easier and won't risk damage to the vinyl wrap. We sell suitable felt-edge squeegees if you need one.
Soap/water mixture or suitable vinyl installation fluid in a spray bottle: As this wrap is cut to precise measurements it must be positioned accurately - to facilitate this, we recommend the "wet fit" method which will allow movement and removal/refitting of the product to get the position just right, and give a flawless, bubble-free finish. You can make your own mixture in a bottle of water with a drop or two of dish soap.

Please note that removal of any of these covering may cause damage to existing paint unless it is completely sound. Use of some gentle heat from a heat gun will facilitate removal and minimise any damage.
