    yeah it bonded awesome i did 2 coats of primer then 3 coats of the Enamel :) its nice & shiney since it has ceramic in it. Im not going to lose the Green Button since its a pain the the arse to get out... Plus it doesnt look that bad with it. Im still gonna get more mods. such as lights & a few more Paint Details but other then that ill be done with it soon

    Actually, it's not that hard to remove the green bit... have a look on XBox-Scene for several tutorials on how to do it.

    Nice job with the paint job, how did you outline it so well with the grated plastic on the rest of the case?

    Very nice. A defniate improvement over the standard one.

    A chrome jewel in the top would look very cool :rock:
