After a day of the Vault case, I have already got sick of it, time to start some work on the case, still thinking of a theme or design. I bought another Urban Blue Vault and the Battlefield 3 Edition also.



Dremel Time



Sanded back the holes with the dremel, helps with the filler something to adhere to





The stand is slightly raised up because of the rubber pads underneath. Just enough of a gap to install some LED's inside the feet for a glowing stand. These should be powered by a USB port so no need to open your Xbox for a power source, I want this case to be able to be attached to anyone's Xbox 360 Console.



Filler over the holes, will sand back and then apply another thin layer. As always less is more, you do not want to be sanding filler all day.





Base in primer, the small holes / indents above each foot, I will fill these as it does not fit with the rest of the design.

This looks pretty nice so far, I never really liked the vault cases though.

He said so in the post, through a USB power source.

The stand is slightly raised up because of the rubber pads underneath. Just enough of a gap to install some LED's inside the feet for a glowing stand.

Not happy with it, luckily I bought a few of these cases on sale the other day, I will use the other blue one, just not yet. Re did the holes a lot neater this time. More work behind the back instead of the front.



Ran out of primer



Filled out these small indents

since i seen the MLG vault ive wanted to do something like this.
i think that logos with some leds would look really good. and it wouldn't be the xbox if it ever broke.

Going to go with a Desert Camo ( Desert Storm ) themed design.





Base / Stand



First Light Coat on the Side





New paint I have been using. Australian based company but made in China. Great coverage, huge range of colours but some of the most toxic paint I have ever used. I have stopped because I can't find a mask around the house ill have to wait till tomorrow to continue.

More progress coming along.

Matching controller for the case, ill try and blend the camo pattern with the holder



I use 3M tape, don't bother with the cheap stuff honestly worth spending the extra money



Lighter color over the top



I have no patience, I always take the tape off early



More







Base coat on the other side
