w00t teh first post of mine...
(mods if the pics are too big i wont mind just putting the links)
Well I've been modding PC's for the past couple of years and I decided to try my hand in the console world. Let me just say this... I hate plastic! It gets everywhere and it's so much more finicky then metal.
Alright for this I used a base coat of adhesion promoter then some layers of silver automotive paint and then red auto paint. Finally I finished it off with a high gloss acrylic top coat. Yea I did use a plastic prep to remove any molding residue on the plastic. Still have a couple o' spots to touch up and one more cathode to add cuz i broke the other one while removing it from the glass case ah well... such is life. I used plexiglass for the windows on both the case and the dvd drive. I'm thinking about adding an extra HDD but I'm not sure how much value this will add to the system (I'm selling it). Also will have two matching wireless controllers w/ red rings o' light and of course matching paint jobs.
This is a detail view of the backside although the XBOX lettering is somewhat obscured by the flash its all there.
Just a pic of it running next to my TV too bad I only have 1080i
View of the front panel with the window. (Note: the disc is spinning the shutter on the camera is just too fast)
Another Side Panel View
Top down view (thats the paint i have to fix, i couldnt see the imperfection until the flash hit it)
Well its blurry but I think you can tell that it's the ring of light on the console. This post has been edited by RDC: Feb 14 2007, 09:11 AM
