    Just wondering if anyone has painted their consoles??

    I'd love to paint my PS2 and Gamecube silver to match the rest of my gear and was wondering if anyone else has done this. Surely its been done by someone seeing how popular PC case modding is? I've done a bit of googling on the subject and haven't turned up anything. So has anyone done, this and can give me tips or has anyone got any links to sites were the procedure might be explained??

    Cheers

    I'm sure some peeps out there have done it. I've seen quite a few modded Xbox cases and PC ones and (if done right) it can look good. If you do choose to spray it though make sure you prime everything. Take the case off before starting anything of course!

    Clean the surface so its free from dust, grease etc, prime it so the paint/spray will stick and just go from there... Basic I know but thats all I currently know ^_^;;

    Best to keep on searching for more professional tips.

    Look in the tutorials and links section, and look at the general shell modding part. This should give all the advice you need to change your Gamecubes apperance

    Cheers Bash!

    That sounds like a much easier and better idea. Have you bought these? I wonder how easy they are to apply and what the end result is like. Are they a reliable company I wonder??

    These are very easy to apply, but take your time with them (have one on the XBox) the results though can vary from alright to great. Never heard of that company but the prices for the skins look a bit over the top
