Hi,
here's a mod I worked on about a year ago, but only just got around to finishing. It's pretty simple: I've added internal lighting in the dvd drive; an extra layer of plexi in the dvd rive window to cut down on noise: and a dvd bezel lighting job. Take a look:-

clean and simple, very well done. i love the white with the clear case
did you paint the front of the dvd tray white? (just the part behind the bezel)

@101499: it looks like a sticker to me, but i wouldn't put it past stevewal to do something more complicated than that

You can probably just print it.

Hi,
Thx for the comments.
@Henmill, I use some white gloss printing paper on the front of the bezel. I used to paint the front of the bezel in my bezel lighting jobs, but I found this is the best finnish as it evens out the grooves and doesn't scratch when the bezel is fitted. @Kindersdotnet I did print the xbox 360 insignia on a transparency then glues them in place on the inside of the bezel and case (sinple but effective).
@101499, the dvd lighting mod uses a phone socket to turn the led's on the front on when the tray is pushed in. There's a descrption on some of my other threads (melting brain, or weird window mod)


cheers

It's actually more complicated then that. Basically the dvd drive tray has a male phone jack plug on it, and the base has the female. So when you open the tray it unplugs the phone jack, and closing it plugs it back in. Something I think only stevewal has done.

thats a sweet mod.

i'm considering doing this myself, but not until i get a second xbox 360. reason why is because i think i would be destracted by the leds too much when playing or watching a movie in a dark room.
