You'll have to spend some time sanding it. Yes, I know, it's like sanding play-doh, but it needs to be done. Or spend some money on a new case.

Apperently he needs to be spoon fed. Two options:

1) Buy a new case, I would recommend the forums here, I just a got a great case for $19 with the controller ports.

2) Sand the hell out of it and paint it with a paint that was actually meant for plastic. I would recommend Plasti-kote, Krylon Fusion, or regular Krylon.

If that isn't clear enough find a brick wall and take a few steps back. Lower your head and run into it as fast as you can.

hahahahaha i should sig that

welll back on topic, i herd this happen before (not on the forums), and instead of sanding it this guy was going to pressure wash it with the softest setting. which is still pretty strong but it shouldnt hurt the plastic. id say do that b/c i never saw the results of that guys little experiment, so id like to use you as my giny pig.

It'll take like 3 days for Rustoleum Enamel to dry I used the Silver on my xbox, and even then it's kinda powdery, so use a good number of clear coats to seal it on
