Hi all, before i attempted to spray my miggy i thought i would have a practise on one of my 4 PS1 consoles.
I used plasti-kote fast dry enamal spray from wilkinsons at £3 a can.
Its had one coat at 11am this morning and was dry to put back together by around 3/4pm
I'm happy with the result apart from the red which looks lego style and didn't seem to apply properly, bubbling in places and looking patchy.
i'm gonna try a different colour on my A1200 and my xbox1

cool, just for your info i used car paint, don't rush to apply new layers of paint i.e let them dry completely in between coats, also don't paint when there is a lot of moisture in the air (no i don't mean rain!) as it causes the paint to bloom.

Cheers, JuvUK

Niceeeeee! (y)

... but ;)

I'd like to see it all blue (just because it's my favorite color) or all red with golden circles. ;)

Plus, if you're doing all round objects one color - only round objects should be of that color.
The upper part needs to be red imho.

Besides that, 7/10 points :yourock:

PS: You did change the power led to a different color, right? ;)

Thanks Guys
I think for my second attempt at spraying a console (My first attempt was an xbox console which went horribly wrong) it doesn't look that bad. I have a around 5 spare A1200 cases that i'm gonna try in different colours so to create the changable face plate effect.
I'm also gonna attempt another xbox1 and my white 360.
All of which will have photos posted when the time comes.

@Shoonay

I didn't change the power led as i sprayed over the frosted plastic so now you cant see the LED at all lol

Re: My Spray Paint Job

it look like you need to flat it back with some wet and dry sandpaper then put a finish coat on

At first I read "enemal spray". :blink:

Which seriously made me think "do I want to read this any further?"

Re: My Spray Paint Job

Looks acceptable, but remember the 6Ps:

Proper Preparation Prevents P*** Poor Performance

There's no shortcut to making sure that the surface is ready to be painted - Jimbob's advice is great - and taking your time like JuvUK says. I did a Psion case with primer, two coats of metallic car paint and then lacquer, and it doesn't look bad but it did take a long time...
