Mod an old guitar case into a custom paintball gear case.
Step 1: Overview & Supplies
Hey everyone! This won't be a typical instructable; I had too much fun doing the project and completely forgot to document what I was doing along the way. Fortunately, there's really no special skills or knowledge needed to make your own custom paintball gear case.
Let's get started!
You'll need the following supplies:
- Guitar case
- One half yard of 4" high density foam
- All purpose spray adhesive
- 1 or 2 yards of fleece
- An electric knife
- An old newspaper
- A marker
The guitar case should be a hard shell case with a soft lining in it. The high density foam is custom fit and relies on friction to stay in place. If you don't already have a guitar case, check with a local Guitar Center and ask if they have an old case you can buy for cheap (or free if you or your buddy works there).
The high density foam can be purchased at a craft store like Michaels or Joanns. A half yard of 4" foam will run about $22.00 so make sure you grab the store flyer that comes out every Sunday (they almost always come with a 40% off coupon). This will put the price around $12.00.
