Put vaseline in it. Make sure you clean it off well where you want to spray paint.

Use liquid masking lightly over the letters. Use a fine tip brush, and it should turn out well.

you can also go ahead and paint right over it, then once it is dry, go over the letters with a mettalic sharpie like I did...

You could do it the automotive refinishing way; very carefully with fine line tape or plain old masking tape and very carefully cut out the appropriate areas with a sharp razor blade.

Put some tape over the letters, and use an Xacto Knife to carve out the XBOX on the bezel.
