Hey all, i modded my xbox once before, and i'm looking to change it up a bit this time...i'm thinking a metallic gold for the x and leave the black parts black..but for the jewel, i want to make the letters spelling "XBOX" to be that same gold instead of silver, then make the jewel jet black...now, my question is how to get the silver stuff our of the letter imprints...i sanded the back and got the green paint off, but i'm not sure how to go about the letters, and i don't wanna scratch up the jewel, so anyone have any idea? Also, has anyone ever dealt with www.llama.com, i think i wanna buy a replacement case to start over on, they're only like 10 bucks, but does anyone know if he is a reputable supplier? Thanks!

Can't help you with the xbox lettering but llama.com is a very reputable company and great to do business with.

To get the silver out of the letters, get some oven cleaner. Spray some in there and let it sit for about 30 minutes. rinse it out and walaa: clear letters.
