While it's great to be able to customize a console, Sony wants to make sure people do it right.
Frankly, I'm surprised they trust consumers enough to do this without spilling piping hot gray all over myself.
Hi Val. Loved you in that movie Felon. Yeah, looks pretty simple.
instructions unclear ps4 stuck on ceiling fan
Cool, now just need a perfect faceplate
I wonder how long this will last? It didn't last so long when the 360 was doing this.
I think face plate swapping makes the console feel cheap! Just release custom versions like they've been doing and leave the faceplate stuff for handheld devices and cell phones.
Are you aware that the hard drive, which is also removable, is underneath the face plate?
Yes! I was always worried about wiping my ps4 , too much dust and was scared of it scratching but now this reaolves everything lol
Tempted to get the 1886 faceplate and do a textured gun metal silver paint job on the rest of the system.
Man, I would absolutely love that. I love gunmetal grey/silver. I need to watch a video on how to properly paint my console because you've got me seriously wanting to do it now lol.
It isn't too difficult. Just get some 400+ grit sandpaper, a pair of latex gloves, a can of Dupli-Color adhesion promoter, a can of Krylon fusion plastic paint in whatever color you want, and a can of Krylon Fusion clear coat. Note: It is best to do this outside on a hot sunny day so that everything drys properly. Put on the latex gloves to keep skin oils off the parts then start by taking the system apart and sanding down all the parts except the faceplate. Do not use too much pressure when sanding, let the paper do the work. After it is sanded evenly, wash the parts well with regular dish soap and warm water to remove any skin oils, and debris from the sanding. Dry well. Apply 2-3 coats of the adhesion promoter, waiting about 3 minutes between each coat. Apply evenly in straight lines from one end of the part to the other. Apply 3-4 coats of paint in fast thin layers, waiting 15 minutes between each coat. Finally apply 2 coats of clear, again waiting 15 minutes between each coat. Let it dry indoors for 24 hours after painting, then put outside in direct sunlight for another 6 hours or so to finish curing. If you want to do the controllers also, it is the same deal as with the system, just get some paper tape, roll it up into little cones and stick them into the button holes so that the paint doesn't get in and prevent the parts fitting back together.
Dasteru if you do it record it, sounds like a perfect how to you tube video
Or you could just send it in to these guys for $259 for a beautiful custom paint job. : http://www.colorware.com/p-...
