Okay, I have all the info I need, now I just need to know how the heck do I paint the bottom of the xbox? Do I just turn it around, tape up the vents and spray away? Or do I have to remove ALL of the insides (son of a biatcH).
Thanks

You're a tard. Why the fuck would you want to paint the bottom? And second, keep everything in your Xbox and spray away. I'm sure you'll be satisfied with the results.

Some of the ppl I talked to said cover up all the vents and spray away, and they were serious so I thought I would ask someone in here (experts). But then I get idiots like bootlegger. I didnt even read yours tysak... Still, sarcasm is not appreciated, I just wanted to know...

I use acrylic car paint but some people have also had luck with krylon fusion paint.

2 color paintjob is done by painting the whole case then masking of the nonX part and painting the X a second color

If I use acrylic, will it peel off on the controller? What is the best brand that you use? Also, do you use primer and then top it off after painting with clear coat (and how manys coats). Thanks

I dont use primer or clear coat but clearcoat might be a good idea when painting controllers

Cleaning the surface before painting will give a better result (no peeling)

Alright sounds good. Too bad I couldnt import a few cans sad.gif
They would so catch it at customs rite?
I want the green/graphite xbox. What exact names of the colors did you use so I may run out and get them in a different brand. Thanks
