So I have made a few themed mods but I wanted to do something special with the PulseVu 2x I had lying around.
I decided to do a Bioshock themed mod with an old xbox I got from a friend.
Can't get the pics to resize hope thats not an issue

Hard Drive plate concept

PulseVu, fans, fan controller and temp sensor

I Plan to have the console airbrushed like the city scape from the game
the Painter onestopgrafx has some serious skill with an airbrush. he painted this controller shell to match my Skyrim Xbox

This was going to be my next project. You beat me to the punch. It looks like it will come out pretty nice. Nice work on the airbrushing on the Skyrim controller. Can't wait too see how this come out!

Had to dig this out of the past. Finally got the case back from paint, took a long time but was worth the wait. Will have updated picks later and will post a video of the finished mod when complete.
I did a 250gb hard drive with a green activity led and blue window, it looks awesome.

Thanks yeah Chris does some incredible artwork I got that one and a Mass Effect renegade Shepard controller.

So on to the updates

Front with window and Bioshock Infinite Logo

Back with the city scape, I realy like the way it came out shows off the city design

Controller background matching case with Washington image from propaganda posters

Faceplate has the same Washington design as the controller
IPB Image

Hard Drive I used guide button from controller and wired in a green activity LED, I cut the window and used blue LEDs to backlight.

Still need to finish wiring LEDs for the PulseVu but got everything else complete. Installed a intake fan on bottom of case, decided to abandon the fan controller idea i didn't like the way it worked. I used the 12 nitro switch from the Whisper fan instead and rewired it to draw from the 12volt line on board instead of plugging into the DVD power. When complete it will have pulsing blue LEDs window cut on windtunnel and DVD drive, intake fan and blue LED exhust fan with 12v switch.

Thanks, waiting on some LEDs to finish this thing. About Chris, not sure it took a crazy long time to get my case back and he really didn't respond to email often. All I can say is keep checking his page, he may be on hiatus.
