Borderlands 2 Custom Xbox Slim

I have not modded a Xbox Slim case yet, but as they are getting real cheap now i thought i would play around with this spare case.

The plan, so far. Is for a Borderlands 2 themed case. I have some ideas but i wont reveal all my secrets straight away.

Stripped it down

Rough designs, i wanted a radius on the corners

Hard Drive Window

Pilot Hole

Cut out

Files. These make your job alot easier then trying to sand your edges down smooth.

Top window cut out

When you are marking out your windows, check behind where you will be cutting, it makes it alot easier if you fit your design to the case.

Looks like a great start! What paint where you going to go with? From working with them I've noticed a glossy finish goes well with the sleek lines of the slim. Are you going to install LEDs? Keep up the good work!

Finished the primer and gave it a light sand. Put it back together to see how it looks. Starting to work on ideas to actually make it Borderlands 2 themed. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Some more progress for today.

Trying to keep a light coat of paint because of that eject button. If i have problems i will re wire a eject button into the rocks.

Expanding Foam

Wanted to add some rocks / terrain to the bottom of the case, add a display for the Xbox case. Wrapped the case in some foil and tape to not get any foam on it. Raised the case up a bit from the base to add some height.

I was filming the expanding foam but the camera went flat 10 seconds into the foaming. Real dirty stuff, definatly will be wearing gloves next time, sticks to your fingers real good.

Removed the case from the base, this is why i used the foil, made it alot easier and nothing stuck to the case. I will be carving the foam and using filler ( bondo, body filler ) to get the shapes i want.

These are the rocks im trying to make at the base

Spent some time on the expanding foam carving out the rocks, sharp flat edges, they don't seem to have much curves.

I removed the foam and other things from the centre and dropped the case lower, looks better then being raised up so hign. Now the rocks look like they have grow / formed around the case, rather then just the case sitting on the top.

This side looks a bit plain so i thought i would keep the foam / rocks higher.

The rocks are far from finished. It looks like not much has happend, but its hard to see in the photos.

The aftermath
