I had an old beat up NES system that I wanted to refurbish and bring back to life. In this day and age, NES systems are fairly retro so I decided I would go with a retro feel to the paint job. Nothing says retro like gold and wood grain. All it needs now is a scotch and some leather bound books. The carbon fiber was just out of pure curiosity to see how it would look in combination. I think it adds an interesting contrast. Hope you like it!
So I neglected to take pictures of the break down process but it is fairly simple (Sorry!). There are a dozen or so screws on the bottom of the Nintento and inside that must be removed. Once the processing board is taken out, you are left with two halfs of the shell. The top half, controller, and gun zapper i painted beige in preparation for the wood grain hydrographic film. With the bottom part, I went with a metalic silver mixed with a bit of blue for the carbon fiber. All the accent pieces were painted with metalic gold. All of this was done with automotive paint. It seems to be the best for the hydrodipping process and allows for a durable paint job once it's all done.
