GIJoe433 - I like that skin - goes well on that colour case.
Dalpura - Nice paintjob - Good to see some brave new colours.
Here is my latest update on my xbox.
My jewel has once again been removed and bought back to crystal clear.
( It would have to be about half its original thickness )
I whipped out my trusty glass cutter and cut a small mirrored piece that is now glued to the underside of the cold cathode mounts.
Gives the light a nice cool blue effect - and has brightened it up quite a lot.
Im sure this has been done before but here is my attempt at it anyway.
There is still superglue residue on the lip that the jewel sits on where small portions of light are shining through - I will have to remove the top and sand and paint this lip again. ( Do not use superglue to glue jewels inplace! )
You can even see the reflection of my videocamera in the close up shot
- The only problem I am having with my cold cathode is that - It works fine if it is on before I turn on the xbox - But if I switch the xbox on ,and then switch the cold cathode on - the xbox freezes up- Maybee its backfeeding voltage into the hdd?
Might throw a forward biased diode in there and see if that fixes it up.
I was also thinking of fitting a small 12v power supply into the xbox ( Seperate power for lights etc ) Has anyone done this?
Would be quite simple to fit a 12v 1amp switchmode power supply in there somewhere.
