Help/Advice with Vinyl artwork, I scratched it, i need to find a protective coating...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I don't know if this is the right place to post this but my laptop has some custom artwork on it. Its a design of mine but it was applied by XoticPC.
Its a printed vinyl sheet that is heatcured to the surface so its layer of vinyl coating...


They said it was durable so I didn't think anything of it till I looked at it and I've put a few noticeable scratches and abrasions. I'm kinda pissed(at myself) and I want to do something to protect it..
I know that cars that have vinyl decals will do topcoats or clearcoat over it but I don't know if I trust myself with paint spraycans or not.
I've never had something with custom "paint" before and I sure as hell don't want to mess it up. I spent 41hours doing the graphics art and paid 120$ for it to be applied and cured to the laptop, and I don't want to ruin it.

I need some advice or suggestions on what to do.
Like laqure or protective transparent coating or something so I don't rough up my "paint job"

some more details about it are in my build log thread in my signature
