Hello, my name is 12and4. Those of you who don't know who i am, my name is right above this post, duh...



Anywho, I am sprayin my PS3 into a broncos ps3 dammit. Like it or not!!!!!!!

I will be making a tutorial on how to do this and put it on my website, www.ps3forums.org (you may sign up and post some good stuff)

My idea: Spray the top cover Orange, and spray the broncos logo on it using layers and tape. Spray the middle part (eject button, etc) Broncos color blue and the stripe on the right side blue, while the rest of it is orange.

So far, I have sprayed the top blue for my primer, and will spray it orange when it dries in 10 minutes.


so far:

Just do not void the warrenty. I thought about doing that to my X-Box, but I did not want to risk "gumming up the inside.

I have like 6 ps3 shells. I used to buy broken and sell fixed on ebay but now its too expensive. My warranty has been void and revoid 20x over already. I couldn't care less about it lol. Makes my ps3 look awesome in the process. Imagine playing madden 11 with a orange n blue ps3 and an orange control.

I bet you could market them on ebay.

If you do not mind a suggestion. I would pant the PS3 "engraving" in Orange. Or even add some pin-striping. Or white "Shelby" Stripes.

I thrive on suggestions, thats a great idea.


The shell is going to be orange, the blue is just a primer right now. So maybe i can do blue for the ps3 logo.

That with the White "Shelby" racing stripes would really pop. On a side note I am glad it will be orange. The TRUE primary color of our team.

I would rotate the stripes and the Logo 90 degrees. Whith the logo centered.

I was not sure of the PS3 Logos placement. I would try flanking the stripes with the Logo.

(sorry about the "ps3forums" thing, its for a tutorial and don't like people stealing my work)

(notice the usps boxes, they are free if you didn't know)

Thats what the mid section will look like. Thats the first coat, i've done a second coat already but don't wanna open it yet so dust wont land on it.




also here is a better image of the lid in the first post

That will be orange soon, once i find a good spray.

Yeah you and me both.


I was having trouble getting the orange to stick but i finally got a good technique that works, so I should have a good product by tonight for the top skin, then after the top skin im gonna get the top half of the ps3 painted orange other than the blue part that i showed earlier.

Then the bottom have orange except for the usb portion, which will be blue. The back will be orange.



Then, the fun part! painting the broncos logo, lol. gonna be tough.

The orange lid is drying right now so it looks weird, but I will get the pics of it soon and edit this post with it. I still haven't picked out what type of color scheme i'm gonna do. I wanna incorporate more white into it since thats also a primary of ours. hmmmmmm.



EDIT: Here it is, without its final sanding so its kinda bumpy. I will sand it very lightly this time using like 600-1000 grit paper. This way it won't scratch it but it will make it smooth. After I sand it down lightly i will get started on the broncos logo, which will first be sprayed white, then covered with tape on the fur of the bronco, then sprayed blue, then covered with tape again where there is stripes and outlines of blue, then I will spray the orange fur along with the rest of the cover to make it all one color of orange (obviously with tape on the white and blue parts.) that is the toughest part of this project. I like to make things tough so my idea is to then add tape to the orange hair and make like an outer glow to the broncos logo in white.

That was what I was thinking with the Shelby Stripes.

Thats the bottom. I took off the tape (there is tape on the sides and on the curved parts bottom.) and sprayed the parts orange, so its gonna be half blue half orange, and I will be done!!!!!!!

These will be shiny and glossy after i apply the gloss clear coat.



these are updates. I am finishing up already, the top half is being applied orange right now so i will be done tomorrow night, after the gloss and everything.


I am leaving the hard part for last, the broncos logo (tun tun TUNNNN)


I am running out of orange lol. I am wringing the spray can out lol and it looks like it might not last. I don't wanna buy a whole new can for just one more coat.

LoL


I can't wait neither but i gotta.

I put the gloss on and it started to bubble in some spots. I needa wait for it to dry completely, so ima let it sit till tomorrow night and start glossin that thing!



I will have pics ASAP, so hang tight.




Plus, if you are asking whether painting a ps3 is original, it is not. But in broncos colors, never seen it b4!!!!!


if you wanna buy it, it will cost u $40,000 cuz this baby aint goin nowhere!


But, idk, in the future if you want one made im sure i can find time.

definitely will make a tutorial. You could do it yourself, no skills needed cept patience really. I was lucky enough to have 5 shells at my disposal so i figured out which methods worked and which didn't.




btw i'm assembling it right now!

(btw, im not completely done with the top yet. I ran into a problem with my plotter and its gonna take a few days. Also, in this video i haven't finished the white part yet, the one that goes over the bluray drive as you may notice its missing since the paint is drying!.... I will make a new video and upload that one once the broncos logo is done.)

Yeah though I think your right, Blue is my only option since you won't be able to see it in white very well on orange.


Thank god I've got like 10 cans of each color, blue and orange (I'm working on a secret project i wasn't going to tell you guys about till its done, dammit you pulled it outta me).



My cousins coming over right now and he's bringin the thing i need to print out the broncos logo in vinyl (i got a plotter for cars that cuts out decals, and ima use that for the broncos logo to use as a stencil if you can imagine that).

That broncos logo is not a sticker. It was spray painted on. As you can tell i didn't finish the eyeball of the bronco lol.


I haven't sprayed clear coat on the top piece yet but i have no patience, i just had to show you.


The broncos logo is what took longest and it turned out great i think.



Comments would be appreciated.
