    it's been a while since update. i started painting my 360. it's been too humid to paint anything here lately. if i were to paint it on a humid day the paint would wrinkle up and just look crappy. here is the base coat(before wet sanding) the paint i chose needs a metalic base coat.

    i have since sanded everything and am ready to apply color. except for the case halves. a damn bug landed on and got his dumb ass stuck to it and i had to sand him off and re-apply metalic base. and here is the first coat of color(pre wet sand)

    i pay for the good stuff and look what craziness happens! i was just about to apply my 3rd coat before sanding and the damn valve stuck. i tried to get it to stop, but the pin then shot out of the can. so i grabbed a plasitc bag and put the can in there. store had better exchange it. i'll be pissed. that paint was expensive. here is the carnage. at least it isn't blasting out anymore, but it is still slowly leaking. the can is still mostly full.

    purple is my favorite color.(no im not gay) it's translucent. the silver base coat is visible, but clear purple on top(if that makes sense)

    purples a good color -- people don't relize that it is both soothing and manly, it is the color of royalty after all...

    damn humidity!! >:p i was paintin' everything and i didn't think it was that high, but the finish coat(pre gloss coat) got some spots where the humidity caused the paint to fog(dull whitish spots). but the face-plate turned out freaking beautiful. i'm going to sand off a layer and reapply final coat tomorrow or the next day.

    yea here in kentucky we ain't got fancy D-vices such as city-slicker air condishunurs. i'm doing it in the garage(which is heated and cooled, but $600 elec. bill put a stop to that really quick.) besides...overspray, airborne particles, and fumes and furniture don't mix too well. not to mention it makes dinner taste kinda funny

    Looking good Nuke... lol at funny tasting dinner and air conditioners :lol:

    I actually like that colour... its really eye catchy. Though I'm probably seeing it wrong (You guys are calling it purple I see it as a pink colour :( )

    Still... looks pretty good and even though I haven't been posting (main machine is in reofmrat) I've been watching :)
