My First Jewel Ever How Did I do?

user posted image
Dvd Window =)

user posted image
And the Top itself

How am I doing? I wanted to try something new and I got rid of the fins how does it look?,I was thinking about doing them in black and then cutting plex to fit the shape and make it flush with the top So it will look smooth and hold a unique look. It Still needs alot of sanding , and I plan on painting it tomorrow Im using shimrins 3 step paint (Base,Color,Clear). I am Going to do it in White and Black I hope it turns out well..

Oh and btw here is a pic of what it looked like before I did the cutting

(sorry about the shitty pictures I will try and take some better ones)
Thanks ,
Fear

Great job, and excellent window. Please don't put that switch on the fin again, it just messes with the whole smoothness. Ya gonna do a flush or regular window?

I do want to do something new and original .
Any Body have any ideas?

I thought that removing the fins and replacing them with plex would be original havent seen it done I think that paint under plex should look pretty nice..

thanks again

Doesn't that contradict itself?

But that sounds like a good idea cuz you could put LEDs along an edge and it would light up the whole sheet of plexi on top of the color you painted below it.

Cant remember the members name, but he's an *aussie*...he did something similar to that and in my opinion it looked pretty shitty....new idea but not well worked. I guess if it had the right contour and was vented and painted to match it would look pretty good. After doing lots and lots of mods these past few years, Im kinda on the concept that simple and clean is ALOT better.My best advice to you is to sit down and sketch up a design that makes you totally happy,plan it, and then complete it. Cuz what makes you happy and sadisfied in the long run is what counts in the long run, not what some people think in the forums.
Good luck w/ your mods!!!

no its more redundant if its new liek a new idea and origional like its his own idea not like origional stock looking if u catch my drift. but its good stuff i was thinking of replacing the fins on the sides with plexi awhile ago liek just cut the fins out an the the sides and reconstruct with 2 peices of plexi but that is hard to do cuz the plastic is contoured... pop.gif

I'm pretty sure atomheartmother replaced the top and side fins with plexiglass, his looked really tidy. Sorry but i think your idea has been done. It is getting really hard to come up with original ideas now for xbox mods, its just almost everything has already been done.
