I found it impossible to get a decent pic of this decal, the pic makes it look meh, but it really turned out very nice.

Tried to get a good picture of the image quality on the screen, this one does it semi justice.

Very awesome design. It looks nice and professional. I'm especially digging the artwork on the back - good job!

Looks amazing. Is this the first time circle pads have been used on a custom-built portable?

My Fusion Micro's both use PSP "slider" analogs and SS's XGC uses 3DS sliders as well. There was a collaborative effort going on over at ModRetro on testing them/getting them to work between a bunch of modders.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys. :)

I'm really admiring the slider pads. Do you think that the paint on them will chip? Did you use rubber coating paint?

Really sweet job though.

Nope, no special paint used on them. I would have liked to find some epoxy based colored paint for them but I can't find a distributor that sells any colors other than just standard black, white and almond for refinishing appliances. So its just normal enamel paint, its holding up well so far. :D

Time will tell how well this method will stand up. I can always re-do them in the future if I need to.

Thanks again everyone!
