modded (coloured) consoles by Mattyg

Post by mattyg » Fri Nov 13, 2009 2:18 am

just sharing some pics of some modded (coloured) consoles I have done in the last couple of weeks - each console was stripped cleaned and the shells sprayed in an automotive booth. The paints have bonded well and they look fantastic and are scratch resistant. There is a purple megadrive/genesis , maroon playstation and a white and a green Lynx.
enjoy people!

The photos definitely dont do the sega justice - it looks gloss black in normal light but a really nice purple when light is applied - unfortunately the camera flash activated on that one!
All of them were loose working consoles with either damaged or faded shells.
I am very happy with all of them and there are more on the list to be done including an FZ-1 so stay tuned!

I think I've mentioned the process before - but I can say that it is not cheap and involves prepping and treating the shells in a similar way to plasic car bumper/fenders in a professional spraybooth - if its not done right the plastic dissolves , melts or the paint flakes - it was a lot of trial and error!

As for the white Lynx it has been done before and Karri over at Atariage refers to it as the "stormtrooper mod" - as for Logan's Run I'm old enough to have seen that on first release at a Drive In ! :D

I really like the green Lynx, although it looks kinda blue to me.

As much as I'm not a PlaySatan fan, I have to say I like the way the red PS1 looks. The SNES is quite stylish too.

This really isn't that much related but I just got my new LD player in and it looks so sweet I thought I would show some images.

I came in this color, champagne not gold, but it's paint job is so lovely I wanted to share with you.

Thought about it but they kinda seemed to match the gold transplanted Panasonic badge (which was lifted off a set of speakers). My Sonic themed megadrive currently under construction will have the red buttons changed to white -
Why are you up? isn't it stoopid oclock in the States?

I was thinking about making slight changes to the Sega Saturn. I'd want a white Jap version but I'm not sure which way I would do it.

"Bumblebee" is that you?

This PS3 was given to me broken to do whatever I wanted - many anti Sony thoughts went through my head , paperweight , doorstop , anchor...

Found the laser to be faulty so whilst it was apart I thought what the heck!

so here it is.........................
