    My new White PS3 with Red LED's

    Hi all, first post here. Thought I'd share my creation.

    I have a painted White PS3, with externally powered Red LED's. Here's some pics below, I'll try get a pic of the LED's when they're on later, as it's still too bright at the moment to get a decent image.

    After dismantling the entire console, I sanded all parts with 800 Grit, then used White Plastic Primer ( 2 coats ) Let it dry overnight, sanded lightly again, then painted BMW Alpine White ( 3 coats ) again let dry overnight, then added one coat of Lacquer. I didn't bother adding more, as I was already happy with the finish.

    The logo I made by printing an image from Google, then taping some chrome sticker sheet behind it. I then used a stanley blade to cut out the printed image, which gave me the lettering in the chrome sheet. I think it worked out quite well.

    Looks real nice, must have taken some serious patience to cut out the chrome!

    I've recently sprayed one of my fat's red, planning to go white next for another. I'm gonna hold off until I can find a way to get the lettering done, makes a big difference!

    Yeah, the chrome lettering took a bit of time, and a steady hand! It makes a huge difference though, so well worth it. Hopefully I'll get a decent pic of the LED's on soon.

    Looks pretty cool. I painted my slim PS3 red and messed up a little but it still looks OK. Yours looks better!
