I'm confused, I tried to help you by giving you some friendly advice and now all of a sudden you have something to prove. Bent out of shape over nothing.

And how are we going to play on your Silver Account...;)

EDIT: Then again, I don't want to play. I have nothing to prove. After all, I'M the one that goes to MLG's....

This needs to end. You're too hyped up over nothing and wont take a little advice rather than strapped to Flaming and Geting bent out of shape over nothing.

You getting bent out of shape and trying to defend yourself over nothing. Just take it lightly. Stop and try to read your posts after you type them and see how hard they are to read, then correct them. This would make it MUCH easier on us...:)

Hey, cool project.

By "mod" we're meaning illegal modification, like modchips and such.

Yes was a bit tricky with all the hidden catchers and I was shiten my self incase I broke them.
I used a website to help me take it apart…I find it a bit funny that Microsoft can come up with a chip that can produce such outstanding game play and graphics yet the outer case is so boring . when I opened up the case the amount of room the components took up didn’t reflect on the size of the box
there was a number of Designs that they could of used il put the pics up on a new thread

Sand before Primer. It preps the Housing to make the paint easier to dry. Are you using Acrylic or Enamel paints?

Also, I'm not sure but are you using white primer?

I'm not a big fan of clear coat in a system. I think the Flat Color gives it a beter look.

MAKE sure you let this Dry COMPLETELY. (15-30 Days for Acrylic paints) If not, the heat from the system will cause the paint to warp within days.:)

Dont be disapointed (sp) i really like the look of those pads, its probably a good thing you didnt put a cross on 'em (could have looked a little busy) :)

Have you thought about replacing the green LED lights for the power button with red ones, might look better with your color scheme. The website below has some information on doing the mod.
