Default Help

What type of paint should I use for my case. I have to paint steel and plastic. The colors im looking for are black and green. Should I go with a glossy look or hammered? I also need help finding some neon or cold cathode tubes (preferibly 12inch) i dont wanna pay alot.

I would use enamel paint, spraying it would probbably be best since brushing can look dodgy sometimes unless done well

Ok I got the black enamel (big can ) but I couldnt find any green that matched xbox's green or even came close. There was one but it is only for plastic. Do you know any site with good colors for modding?

Default has almost anything you need. Most of their prices are pretty decent, and they have a 1 hour sale every sunday as well. They sell everything from paint, to the cold cathodes, and they usually have quite a large selection. Its a good site, I have bought a few things from them.
