Found 21st Apr 2008
So I've got an empty Wii case and I'm looking for more than just spray painting it.
I was thinking about getting mini Lightsaber that light up to put on each side but I've gone off that idea.

Also thought of getting a NES controller and doing something with that, but the illustrator results are looking awful

Anyone got any ideas? No zelda

I was thinking about black, but I'm wanting more than just a base colour

Yeah but if you get a metallic black and stick neons in, the light will shine off the coat. Maybe if you mixed the colours up eg Blue & Red the light would blend on the surface

Interesting idea i am doing it as well but wasnt sure of green or red

How much do divineo charge for shipping that item? If its more than 2.64 then there isa seller on ebay who sells the green and red gates for 4.99 plus 1.60 shipping and a uk seller

item number 350051081934 if that helps

Thanks for the link but I canceled my ebay ages ago so no chance of using that (fee's came to £25 :whistling:)
Gonna order the light later so I'll tell you total P&P might be getting other things too though. I was also thrown between red and green, but I love green so it had to be that, but sometimes red looks alot better with black (the new crimson DS for example)

Well i got bored and signed up just to find out the shipping cost and guess what - for one dvd gate its 2.65 - a whole 1p more expensive than ebay

might try and find other stuff i need from divineo now and see if i can save postage

I thought about green as well - but i have so many other green things that i thought i would do something different

Now if i was able to i would do this

you could always start from a premade case:
divineo.co.uk/cgi…tml (the link doesn't work, go to Tuning cases)
and then get bits and bobs from places. I was gonna go to Game Station cos they sell odds and ends like stickers - I could cut the stickers out and make a stencil from it.

I got the empty case from DealXtreme btw, it came here pretty quick considering it came from HK

I guess when i finish my final year in june i might give it a go and make something individual cos i will have the time but it'll probably turn out awful

Interesting link for ebay - 130215048756

nice idea but a tad out of my price range

love the sound effects though - mario exiting through a pipe when you press the eject button is genius

End price: £1,114.45 :roll:

I like that but I don't like the Mario figures much, they look really cheap.
Anyway I'm just back from getting supplies , I'm gonna start planning this later tonight then start the actual work tomorrow

Not all is going so well. I've been spray painting since this morning, left it outside to dry in. Next door neighbours scabby dogs came along and ruined it all. so now need to wait til it fully dries and sandpaper it down and re spray paint it, and PUT SOMETHING OVER THE TOP so the scabby dogs don't strike again

Any progress - hopefully the dog next door wasnt a problem this time
