What should I use for this? Like, a certain type of glue or something? One that spreads really clear and even I guess. Obviously, I wanna be able to see through my jewel once it's on my box. All right, thanks guys!

Hot glue. Are you planning on adding some leds or cc's? From what I've heard hot glue 'distributes the light well'.

Hot glue is kinda messy, i used Scotch Super Glue Gel.
Very small tip so its easy to apply, super strong, and very clear.

Well, I'm about to go finish painting my Xbox now. I thought about just painting under the jewel, and then putting the jewel on so it'd look cool see-through or whatever.

But now that I think about it, I wanna cut a hole and put some LEDs. Any tutorials for cutting the hole? Also, any tutorials for adding LEDs to that spot? What are some good stores to get LEDs for cheap? Last, what color LED do you think would look good with my painted box that has an orange 'x' and everything else white?

By the way, I haven't painted the front panel. Is that hard to do? I know it's a HUGE pain to take off, but is the actual painting hard?

All right, thanks guys!

why dont you cut the lip off and use a clear cd protector and cut it to size, this way you dont see a lip it all looks clear. and it can hold in a cc or led ring.

So, you're saying cut the whole ring out, and then just cut a CD thing? I dunno, a lip sounds easier. You don't even notice it in the pics I've seen.

Anyways, please give me a tutorial for cutting this. I don't want to mess up!
