Well I finally got around to posting pictures of my black Xbox360. I finished my Xbox360 awhile back but I just never bothered posting the pics until now. I didn't do any windows or LED's like I was planning because I decided that if I am going to use my Xbox360 as a HD-DVD player than I don't want anything being too flashy. If the Xbox360 had LED's it would stick out too much. I decided to just try and make it look as stock as possible. I went with a flat black in most places to help give it that stock look. I had the grills and the powerbutton have a very shiny gloss to go with the go with the gloss parts on my Old Xbox. I didn't paint the writing on the back on my Xbox360 incase of future reference. I painted the hard drive shell with vinyl dye and you can observe that here.

I have no work in progress pics. I don't think it is important.

These are all the paints I used. Lustrekote is a very thin model paint. It worked very well. Plastikote's Vinyl Dye also worked wonders and I will use it soon on my Xbox360 Wireless Controllers.

I remember some time ago that members were talking about where to paint. This cardboard box helped shelter my Xbox360 shell from dust.

As for my Xbox360... I know it looks bad but it is actually really dusty and I didn't bother cleaning it before the pictures were taken.

Can anybody else find his second xbox 360? There are two monitors and they are both displaying different blades, so there must be a second one, but I can't find it...

I'm liking the black, even with the dust. It does look stock.

Did you even sand the case? Or did you just paint straight over the white? I'm looking for a "stock" texture but don't know what grit of paper I should use.
