    I scratched at the bottom of the case, i’m going to have to say it is pretty durable. i didn’t take any sharp tools to it, but i’m going to say it will hold up to regular wear and tear with no problems. Vinyl dye rocks.

    i’ll check it a little more thoroughly tonight. i’ll test it out on the bottom side somewhere to see how it holds up and get back to you.

    thanks. the vinyl dye seems pretty durable. it soaks into the top layer of the plastic, which should make it more durable than paint. i haven’t purposely tried to scratch it off, but it has been sitting on my tv stand within reach of my 4 small children…so far, so good. i am so happy i went with the vinyl dye over regular paint. it doesn’t even look painted, it looks like it came from the factory that color. i’ve had several people ask me where i got a SNES that color because they couldn’t believe it was painted. I used paint on the purple buttons, and while i love the color, they look painted.

    i got my vinyl dye at autozone, but they only had a few colors (charcoal, black, light gray, red and blue) i love the charcoal color, i couldn’t be happier with it. it is very thin, so you have to use very light coats..i think i did 3 light coats on mine.

    no, no case modding background. I am an I.T. consultant, there were some client computers on the bench in the background when i took some of the pics. I did a lot of the work on this at work during some down time. This is the first time i’ve done anything like this. I’ve built a few custom mame arcade cabinets and modded some xboxes, but nothing quite like this before. i can’t wait to get started on my next one.
