    Hello again! This is a super old thread, but I'm coming back to update you guys with my most recent mod! This time I took progress pics the entire way through

    The video version is pretty short and covers everything if you don't want your eyes raped by 39485734 large .jpgs ... lol

    So, this is where I started:


    I work in a sign shop, and we have a plotter cut vinyl machine. Basically, I took the image of the poster and traced it in Illustrator ... the machine only understands .eps format, it cuts along the line that I provide. This is the best way to make a stencil or paint mask ... EVER! I'm so lucky to have this machine at my disposal!


    So, this is my paint mask. I cut 2 of them and placed one on to know where to cut the window.



    LOL! This is my rough cut, the window was so small that I had to start really rough and then file away at it.

    There it is cleaned up and bondoed! (that's totally not a word but you know what I mean haha)


    Layer of white to cover the bondo, and a little bit of light gray at the bottom to start out.

    Sprayed with gray primer


    Added detail...


    Mounted the plexiglass window, mounted the logo on top and applied brushed silver vinyl to the top.


    Used a paint mask to create the logo on the side..

    YYYYEEEAAAHHHHH!!!!!! That looks F'ing SWEEEEEEEEEETTTT!!!!!! Great job! There's only 1 problem with that..... and that is, it's not here in my home! lmao. Wow, keep up the good work, if you want to try another one with a wrap around wall only, I can provide some huge, clear SLR photos I took from E3 and the Bethesda Skyrim wall.

    Glad I could be an inspiration and GREAT WORK on this stunning Skyrim Xbox 360!
