Green Dreamcast mods :)

Post by assesoffire » Mon Jan 29, 2007 4:35 am

I've modded up my Dreamcast, a green paint job on the console and controller, replaced the front LED with a green one, and added a green fan LED.
You like?

Yeah :) and it fits perfectly into your room. Now you only need to mod your TV. My neighbor modded hers with pink fur - looks incredible.
Insane homebrew collector.

Nice. Your PS2 and Dreamcast create a very nice Christmas theme together.

To be perfectly honest, the PS2 isn't great, There's marks on it from where the Dreamcast sits and the colour is a bit deep. I'm getting a 19" HDTV at the end of february :)

Just follow this guide, I recommend 3mm super bright LEDs from maplins

Rofl, I have yet to decide on what I think of the Wii in that picture. It's a nice job, but the colors chosen? Bubblegum colors; Haha.

Still, very nice job on all three. Wish I had more skill for painting systems. I can mod like you did atleast.

I think the color would be greatly improved if you sat the Prince doll that is inside your baseball glove on top of the Dreamcast.

The paint jobs look very clean, though I can't say I'm big on the color choices. Those consoles all look candy-coated :P
