Hi kool kev.
I have not modded my x-box yet (actually it hasn't arrived, I just got it off ebay) but I plan on painting it. However, I have modded computers before. When I paint a case I use masking tape, a dremel (for any cuts needed), and spray paint. For my x-box though, I think I will be using some kind of auto paint from a local auto parts store. That is what my friends and I paint our bikes with, so I would expect it to work a lot better than spray paint. Spray paint doesnt hold long, and it doesn't go on even. When your painting, make sure to take everything out of your case, including all the buttons. If you paint with buttons still attached, they will stick afterwords. If you plan on making details in the paint and not just one solid color. Make a stencil with some thick paper. I prefer using masking tape whenever I can becuase the paint cant run inter it like it can with paper. If you look at my webpage you can see my PC mods: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~pgunnels/modding.htm
The first one has the best paint job (and the flames on top look better than what the pic shows). All that was done with masking tape. Have fun painting your x-box. Just remember not to paint it with all the parts in it!
