I cleared it and painted the 'xbox' bit black,then just shoved some foil underneath until i get my custom jewel tongue.gif

Am waiting for a cathode fan so i can rip the cathode out and stick it in.And yes its a blue one ohmy.gif


And jack...no i just used the tamiya paint,no clear coat.

Nice xbox.
Im thinking of painting mine red and was wondering where you got the paint, and how many cans did you use.
