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.severdhedParticipant10/24/2015 at 05:22Post count: 8
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.
