It's pretty simple, really.
First thing I did was to take off the front case, which is done by removing the one screw under the keyboard below the "warranty void if removed" sticker.
The front case is stuck on by 8 small bumpers (sorry, no idea what it's called) which you need to gently push it out off.
I used a very thin knife and pushed it in between the top case and the bottom case and very gently pushed until it popped off.
There's 4 bumpers on the front and 4 on the back which you need to pop it out off (very gently, you do not want to break those):
You can see some scrape marks from the knife, not a big deal because you don't see that part when the top case is on.
Then I sanded the top case until it was dark grey all over, using 600 grid. Took me around an hour and a half or so to finish.
I was going to use plasti dip, but the store didn't have it so I just got normal Acryl spray:
Then I painted it one time, let it dry and painted a second layer.
