I had a slightly bashed up Xbox 360 case which I decided needed some TLC. I'm also teaching myself to paint.
I have been painting this in the evenings in the back garden on an old garden table. Not the best place or temp to be doing this but Iím always up for a challenge.
First off was to sand down the case to a slightly smoother finish.
Then applied three coats of plastic primer.
Sanded smoother and laid on three coats in 20 min intervals of Vauxhall Midnight Black metallic paint.
Didn't bother sand before placing a small coat of lacquer on.
Waited three days for that to settle then put a very heavy coat of lacquer to finish off.
Looked pretty bad (mad orange peel everywhere) but I then wet sanded this very slowly until flat as possible. Then went to town with AG Paint Renovator, AG Super resin polish and finally AG Ultra Deep polish.
So far itís come out even better than I hoped.
I now have to sand the other side.
I will rebuild the Xbox soon with a new laser and green whisper fan and put this up for sale.
Let me know what you think
