    Obviously you need to take the bits of the case you want to paint off, give them a light sanding (so the paint sticks better) Then carefully mask the bits you don't want to paint. Lightly spray the case, less is more, leave to dry, repeat until it looks good. Finally spray a couple of coats of lacquer otherwise it'll chip real easy.

    Take your time and apply multiple coats and it'll look really good, rush it and it'll look a complete mess and take ages to sort out.

    No but I sprayed my white 360 black to blend in with my black Sky HD box and bought an Elite black wireless controller off ebay. So except for the lack of a HDMI socket which is debatable whether it makes any imporvement at all i've got an elite on the cheap :D

    I think it suits white much better, would love the HDMI though, what's the chance of an adaptor?

    whites better plus if u have it put onto a shelf u can only see the front, so u could customise it, even with black.
    doubt there would be an adaptor, otherwise the elite wouldnt sell.
