so i bought some pieces about a week and a half back from DoctorWho

and then i had this cool paint idea
i have a 1.6b with no psu, no dvd drive,no heat sink, no ide cable, and no modchip (yet)

but for starters what i have done

cleaned the case
bought paint
painted to the point of clear coat (working on that right now)
taken pics

what still needs to be done
clear jewel
psu's arrival
buy dvd drive
buy heat sink
ide cable
leds
and modchip



here are some pics

removed the ugly skin and cleaned it all up

Take your time if you sand the buttons, because I rushed and rounded off one of the edges. Luckily I managed to bondo it to the point that it looked pretty much normal. Personally I'd fill in the symbols with bondo, but that's your choice. Nice mesh look on the case though. biggrin.gif

I don't post a lot, but I'm always looking at xbox's people do and I really like this one. Great mesh look and it works well with the silver. Buttons looks perfect. Looks sick; hope the chip works out for you.

Free is always nice biggrin.gif
