Looks awesome Hemlawk. What do you charge for something like that? I'm either gonna get something like that, or do an etched lexan/glass window when I figure out how to upgrade my harddrive to the 250, or buy the new 360...

Thanks guys. I really dont feel like painting anymore, but I could... Probably for $100, only because its time consuming.

I want to paint a new theme, but ive been lazy lately.

I already have the stencils made for the Gears of War xbox, that's why I'd only charge 100. If I had to make something completely new, it would have to cost more.

a GT5 logo on PS3 would look good, but anything beyond the logo and Gran Turismo 5 text is overdoing it.



my thought:
keep the GT5 logo(blue&red) and GRAN TURISMO 5 text, take out the 'The Real Driving Simulator' text.
Make a stencil for it, paint the blue and red part with metallic blue and red, then do the GRAN TURISMO 5 text with light grey....
I think this will look good on the newer semi-matte black PS3 slims, but wouldn't work on the older gloss black PS3.

Maybe a car outline below the GT logo, like just the TOP of the car, very minimalist. Could look decent.

I have the old fat PS3. I like your idea but you would definitely need the flat black

Yea the high gloss surface on the fat PS3 is not good to work with, harder to prime, harder to paint, etc.

Plus the high gloss get scratches easily....

I use to dust it every day for about 2 months and there was always new scratches so I gave up and it has worse paint then a black car from 1990s
