i just fudged up my case, i tried putting super glue to hold something in and it just fogged up like a bitch. i dont know what to do now, either buy a new front faceplate, deal with it, or use my black one wich wont match the rest of the case. or somehow get it off, i took some nailpolish remover and tried it on a small area but it just melted the plastic. anything i can do?

I covered up that area using a black plate from a normal xbox (just the little square piece - you can see a photo of it in the thread in my sig - cant remember which page - try page 4.

If you dont have s black xbox, you could just paint that little square on the back side.

ok but the super glue is on the backside, so if i paint the backside ul still see it foggy, and its a 3rd party case, you cant remove the plastic piece from it, its all one piece

you could always fog your case, i think that looks better than the *crystal* clear cases.

ok i already sprayed one coat of black, if that doesnt work out il try the fog

EDIT i also didnt like the idea of being able to see the LED lights and the difuser, it kind of defeated the purpose of the defuser cuz u could already see the light
