cuts are weak - not straight, messy, black showing through, get the front cut parallel with the front of the box.... wayy too few LED's....skip the radioshack LED's...they're 700-2000mcd..crap..., find some supplier that will send you 20,000+mcd led's...only way it'll look decent..i use the ones from my business...all rated at 20,000mcd...

something on top of the part of the dvd drive...somethin that looks like...idk, foam maybe?

you missed a corner of the dvd drive cut, front left corner of your box...

2 led's in window - weak. not bright at all.. you can see the LED's ... big no no...

no clear jewel?

paint job is sloppy - where the black meets the white, you can see where white was spilled...all over the black...looks messy...

i'd call a do over. or at least attempt a fixer-upper...

sorry, you:

paint the dvd bezel white and make your window have parallel edges to the box, you will also want to back up the leds so they are not able to be seen in the future and it will be lovable lol.

First of it was my first ever paint job so i think it looks great, im not totaly done with the LED's, The Led's are bright enough trust me, Yes paint did run where the black meets the white, but then again its my first paint job ever, And the Jewel is Clear? Are you blind or something?

NO, but i suspect you are, it is obviously white, a clear jewel is when you have used a hole cutter. You can't just sit it on top of the case and call it clear.
NOT BAD FOR A FIRST GO

PWNED.

Haha, I agree, you cant just put it there, it looks like crap. Put a cathode ring around it once you cut the hole and you are good to go

I like WHITE jewels, but not ones that have been cleared then placed on a sprayed white xbox, don't forget, that part of the case has some ugly looking protrusions that look like this > 0 < (or something like)
