Ok, here is a simple tut on stencileing flames.
Disclaimer: Drawing 'hot rod' style flames takes some practice, skill, and some luck. Also this mod REQUIRES a stedy hand.
Materials:
1. Xbox (duh)
2. Masking Tape
3. X-acto Knife
4. Plain Paper

There are three ways to do this. I'll cover two of the three. The thrid is useing painters tape, traceing the flames, then cutting. I didn't cover this becuase that way takes ALONG time. But apply the same idea from method #2, replaceing paper with tape.

Method #1
Take one sheet of paper and, on a flat smooth, surface draw the flames. Basicly you want to follow the curves of a females body. I suggest getting alot of paper and drawing flames and practiceing untill you get it right. I know that if I start drawing the first fales I draw suck, but as I go along they get better. Here's my example:

When you're done drawing, cut out the flames with a pair of sharp, small sissors. Tape it to you box, leaveing no paper that is lifting.

Method #2
Take one sheet of paper and tpae it across the xbox. Leaveing the bottom , where the botom of your flames will be, un-taped.

Next draw you're flames, be shure to know where the big X ends has cut outs.

Now take your X-acto knife and CAREFULLY cut out the flames. Be shure not to apply to much pressure so you don't cut the surface of your xbox. If you do, this si why you do this befor applying paint, make shure to use some body filler (if they are deep) or sand them down (if they are little).

After that unmask everything and apply your
primer->base->apply mask->flame color->unmask->clear.

Yea, that is cool. Is the Y-button on your controller lit up? If not, you might want to check that out.
