W.I.P Ps1 Case mod based on 77' Trans am

Post by darkcloud990 » Thu May 10, 2012 9:53 pm

Well hello everyone, I have been wanting to do a case mod for a long time now and I'm finally getting around to it. Today I have stripped down my Ps1 and have taken pictures which I will have uploaded. I am new to this so I may need to ask a few questions and what not, in fact my first one being what sand paper would be best for the Ps1 and how to go about sanding it? Now aside from that this is a case mod for the Ps1 based on the 77' Trans am paint scheme which was black with gold trim. This will try to represent that the best I can. Now for some pictures.

Smokey and the Crash Bandicoot themed?

:D

I would suggest 400-600 grit to prep for painting, then 800-1000 between coats.

What do you plan to do for the screaming chicken...

You DO plan to include the screaming chicken, right? RIGHT?

I would put the screaming chicken on the disk cover, then cut windows on the sides, except I would make them like it's a t-top, where you can pull a cover off to see in and such.

Thank you for the advice on the sandpaper, And yes the t-top would be bad ass but I'm only a beginner so I'm not even sure how this is going to turn out. I'll put up a picture depicting where the colors are going to be. Maybe get some feedback.
