I did this about a year ago. Let me know what you think. It's my first case mod. My first paint job on basically anything. Any constructive criticism would be helpful. Sorry for the blurry pictures. I have a Canon. Thanks

Looks like good clean work as far as I can see. Nice straight cuts and good finish to paint.
I'm doing my first mod now and my window shape design has um... gone out of the window... man its hard to cut straight with cheapo rotary tools sad.gif

If I had a better camera, you would see the imperfections.
I used a Dremel. It wasn't the best. But the only thing I could find. So I guess it did the job.
I was really planning on putting some white LEDs in the case that would give it a lot more color. But as I was doing it, I was hooking up the last LED and I had it almost done and somehow the LED touched a connection spot on the board and it shut the 360 off and I saw a tiny smoke stream. That scared me to death. I said screw it, and put the case back on. =P

Good luck on yours though. =]

Yeah led's would definitely liven it up.

If you're going to shamelessly bump your own thread, post some new pictures at least! biggrin.gif

I actually really like the mostly black, white contrast 360. The white SMDs are nice and bright.

looks really good man.

Id still do those LED's...that little smoke stream has happened to me a few times too!

Scary shit, but worth it in the end!

If you say theres imperfections in the cuts, just sand them down!

But over all, nice box man.
