    ok well im trying to paint my controller but im at a roadblock the screws have a little dot in the center preventing me from taking it apart PLEASE HELP

    to get the screws you can uae a 2mm flat head screwdriver and if they break use a allen wrench. thats how i did it. im going to post pictures of mine when its done.

    You will need a T8 screwdriver which you can get at any hardware store and a flat head screwdriver. You have to use the flathead to break the pin in the center. After all the pins are broken you can open it with a T8 screw driver. Or, you can order a Security Torx T8 from Amazon or Ebay.

    Or just use a very small(jeweler's/watchmaker's) screwdriver.

    Nice! What kind of paint do you use for painting the controllers?

    can i just use a flathead and then take the top and bottom off and everything will still be there???   This way it would be easier or will i have to take other stuff off.   Will stuff just like fall out or what??? i would like to get started on this project next week..??

     I used red paint with crystal clear enamel and the paint came off and onto my hands when i sweated!! Why is this?

    were did u get the the t8 driver

    Use paint made for Vinyl it won't wear off the plastic
