Today i have started designing and working on a new Xbox 360 project. The project will be featured around a 7" inch screen, i have not decided how i want this built into the side of the case.

Not to sure on everything just yet, ill pick a theme and then can build around that, maybe an upcoming game / movie. Feel free to give me your ideas and feedback. Give me some ideas.

Put the controller next to it so you can get an idea of how big the screen is.

Wanted to slim the screen down further so i can mount flush on the case. This is the only way your going to learn, take things apart and try and see how things work and see what you can change.

6 screws and then used a screwdriver to leaver it open

Slimmed Down from 26mm to 17mm. ( Inches 1.02 to 0.669 )

Its more then it sounds, could make the difference between fitting or sticking out and not looking right. I want this to be an easy mod and be able to do easily and quickly.

All-in-one mods are always cool, can't wait to see it when you're done.

The ammo case mod is awesome too.

More progress today, got a fair bit done today. Unfortunately the screen colors have changed, not showing the correct color. Have ordered a new one as a replacement, its fine though because i can now use it as a testing screen getting everything fit and ready.

Picked up a 250GB Xbox Slim for the project, got it at a great price with Kinect and a few games. Once i got it home, i think it took me around 5 minutes to get it apart and started planning my case design.

The idea. Mount the 7 Inch screen on the side of the case, i want to keep this looking original, almost like Microsoft came out with this. Most likely to re paint the case in a gloss black back to original.

Filled in 3 rows of the fan grill, i did not want the screen overlapping over the grill, it wont look original

IPB Image

Light coat of filler, you would rather do a light coat of filler then place a huge heap and spend the time sanding it back

IPB Image

Got the Dremel out to cut out the rough shape of the screen frame

IPB Image

IPB Image

Filling in around the frame

IPB Image

Starting to sand some areas. That is all the work for today, not much spare time today, got about an hours worth, but got a great start on it all.

Bondo

Got the screen from eBay, Reverse Camera Screen

Second coat of filler, probably will need one more to fill in a few more things, around the edge of the frame, i did not like the line going around the screen so it will be filled

Primer on the other side and faceplate

More progress today, really getting a lot done in the last 2 days

Gloss black seems a waste painting it the exact same color, but i want this to look like a stock Xbox 360 Slim like Microsoft had made it, ill make another and paint it / base it on a theme.
