Make sure you're prepared to let it dry for quite some time. If not, the heat will cause the paint to warp. I think the window should have a symbol unique to you in it...

I always enjoy painted controllers. Just MAKE sure you let it COMPLETELY dry or it will rub off onto your hands!

yea make sure you let the controller dry, i screwed up a controller for my xbox (1) trying to sand the paint off and repaint it since all the paint rubbed off onto my hands after a month or so

Im thinking about just painting my extra white faceplate i have.
Cutting the XBOX360 out and having it backlit would look nice i think.

What's wrong with Pink? Too Feminine for you Erton? LOL. Listen, I'd rock a pink faceplate if my wife was nice enough to paint it for me. Maybe only every once in a while, but still...

Off Topic:
Erton, I'll sell you a pink RAZR V3;)
