Hello, ive just cleared my jewel, but it didnt turn out very nice. It kinda cracked in the middle but its not fully cracked yet so ill hope it wont biggrin.gif. Anyway, i just ordered 10 Blue LEDS 5 mm from Sickmods and a 10 ohm 1 watt resistor. Now im just waiting to get it shipped. Will the leds be enuff for a good jewel mod?

Im also thinking of adding a little pc case fan and superglueing it to the jewel so that when i turn on my xbox, the jewel spin. itll add a nice effect to the leds lol. Anyway, ill keep you up to date.

What did you use to clear the Jewel to make it crack?

Also, I only have 8 in my xbox jewelwise, and it's plenty bright enough, so 10 will be plenty.

I wish you good luck with your first mod smile.gif

Yea I used nail polish remover as well, and regret it. My jewel cracked and shortly after snapped right down the middle, so now I have no jewel. sad.gif

Anyway, good luck with your mod.
