custom xbox360 and hd-dvd!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
after my warranty expired and my xbox360 started getting older. i decided it would be awesome to make it red and white. so here it is after all my work!



so what do u guys think? do any of u have any mods or other changes to your 360s? Id love to see them and get some more ideas. If you have any show me some pictures!

I could have easily purchased the faceplates and stuff but that would be boring. Time to get red cathodes and fans for my computer now =].

EDIT*

Heres some more closer pictures =].









Oh and the back of the battery pack is also red but u cant see it.

I bought some high quality chevy engine enamel from the hardware store. Then i opened up the 360 and voided my warranty to get a hold of all the parts needing to be painted. then i layed them on a piece of cardbox, sprayed from a distance very lightly and let them dry under a warm lamp. but i kept a fan blowing to speed up the drying. Same thing for the controller, remote and hd-dvd drive.

here is how i learned to open up the xbox 360.

And here is how to open the hd-dvd drive.

the controller and remote were easy to open, but you have to remove some stickers to get to the screws.

Wow, that's a nice looking X360. Just add an Ohio State logo and it's perfect for we Columbus natives!
