Wow, that's really good! I like how you did the ring around the jewel black, it makes the white jewel even with the colours smile.gif Really clean, too!

Post another pic when the plexi is in biggrin.gif

Good job,
CC.

I read that you haven't put the plexiglass in yet but will the spindle top be attached to it?

You cant read discs without the ring from the top of the dvd rom case.

Looks nice, paint the bezel and it will look nicer biggrin.gif

i love the color scheme, and the jewel. But yeah, paint the bezel, and get a spindle on that dvd drive... then do white controller port LEDs, and a white P/E board. And white underglow... and white sideglow.. and a white 80mm fan.. haha, id love you if you did that.

p.s. to grim, some people are too dump to find softmods. Like honestly, people around here pay me to softmod their xboxes, and it sad. If only they could read, they could do it themselves. Like how hard is it downloading 2 programs, then dragging and dropping whatever you want... but whatev, i like money biggrin.gif

Umm the Leds have to wait for a while since im not gonna be home for 2 weeks. Then i gotta save up for some leds, cause when i come back im totally gonna be broke. Its funny though that people actually pay for softmods...lol. I remember when i was trying to do mine i wanted someone else to do it for me but luckily i had the money for the memory card and i had some left to rent 007auf. I also read like 100 pages of informantion, from xs, afterdawn, xbox-linux project, and a bunch more.

Yeah im gonna paint the bezel today, but i want the letters that say "xbox" to be grey not white, so i guess i might use some gasoline..lol.

Gasoline? blink.gif

Can't you just tape over the letters? No wait, that's just stupid ... I have no idea haha. Try just painting the whole bezel, then drawing over the letters in a silver felt pen?

Good luck!

If i put gasoline on my finger and rub the letters after i painted everything the paint on the letters will come off, it works.

Edit: I didnt do the window with a dremmel... i used a soldering iron to melt the plastic i used a tiny little saw, and a knife.

I just painted the bezel.....i just left the letters white.. ill post a pic smile.gif
