DIY custom black 360 controller


360 Fanboy reader, Alcaron, sends along this do-it-yourself guide on creating a custom colored 360 controller. What makes this mod special is that it actually dyes the controller shell itself, rather than merely coating it (like spray paint). There are several advantages to this over paint. For example, the color cannot be rubbed off or flake away. The process isn't too complicated and it's fairly inexpensive, but there are noxious fumes involved, so remember to wear a mask and work in a well ventilated area. The end results speak for themselves: it roxxorz our (X)boxxorz. Follow the read link for more pictures and instructions on how to make one of these beauties for yourself.

Any other fanboys out there care to share their own mods?
