    Default Xbox 360 Elite Carbon Fiber

    I've been wanting to mod my 360 forever by using the swirl painting technique but that's almost impossible to do where I am. SO I figured I would cover it with Carbon Fiber, add some windows and lights to it.

    Here are the parts I have done so far.

















    I like the look so far.



    I've ordered more carbon fiber and the supplies for the windows so that should all be here next week. I'll have another update tomorrow.

    Cheers till then.

    I did the window work today.

    But first here is the batter holder for the controller.


    Here is the plan for the DVD ROM window.


    After cutting and filing for about 2hrs.

    Almost done. Just need to file for another 30 minutes or so.

    The plan for the 2 windows in the side of the case. I wanted to do 2 windows so I could still have the XBOX 360 in the middle of the door.


    After cutting.


    After about an hour of filing and sanding.



    Almost perfect but it doesn't need to be. I'll be using some u-channeling from MNPCTECH to go around the edge so it will look even when I'm done.

    Cheers till next time.

    Hopefully I will get my MNPCTECH order today so I can finish up the carbon fiber. I also ordered 2 sheets of 1/16" thick and 1/8" thick clear plexi. IDK what size to use so I bought some of each.

    I am thinking of cutting out the "XBOX 360" logo on the side so you can see through it but IDK how it will work out. I guess I would have to use my dremel and a routing bit. I have to think about it a bit more.

    I decided to cover the DVD ROM with carbon fiber too since you can see it through the window.





    Came out well. Now all I need for it is the pexi.


    Now when I put the carbon fiber on the top half of the case, I covered all of the vent holes. Well that just isn't going to fly if unless I want to burn it up. So I got my small round file and a fine X-acto knife and started to cut out each individual hole. As you can see I got a few done but there are tons more to do.


    That's it for now. I'll be working on the vents for a few hours. I'll post pics when its finished.

    Cheers till next time.

    Looking good. Yup the holes are a pain but it'll look killer when it's done.
