    Krylon fusion is made to bond to plastic... it is perfect imho for the job.

    as for tutorial... umm, take apart your ps3, wet sand till smooth, wipe with mineral spirits then start painting....

    It was actually my friend XVISTA's paint job that inspired me to do one,... you can see his HERE

    and attached are some more pics of mine to hopefully get some of you motivated to get painting and show off your work for the rest of us to see

    The one in the attached pics was already sold but i am finishing up a second one which will end up in the BST section here!!

    I have never used vinal dye so i am very very curious how your 360 turned out... and strange enough i have been thinking of doing my wii and horizontal stand black also XD

    So if the dye really does work out well that will be the likely choice for the wii+horizontal stand

    its great, it does not run. it absorbs right into the plastic so it is less prone to scratching, leaves no streaks. and retains the texture of the plastic.

    unlike spray paint. you can find it pools in labels for example the top of the console says XboX 360 etched into the plastic. with paint that could harden and cause a mess. with the dye. it just soaks in and everything looks factory.

    Is there any way to add neon lights to the PS3? I just got mine a week ago and wanted to spiff it up a bit..

    Case mods would be fantastic. i have a bunch for my DS but getting one for the Ps3 is hard and expensive.
