Learn how to repaint a xbox 360 faceplate to suit your needs/tastes.
I recently bought a remote for my xbox 360. The remote came with a custom faceplate, however it was white and would not match my elite well. Since it was practically free, and they are dirt cheap, I decided to repaint it.

I carefully looked over each area and decided the best way to operate on it.

This is hard to do, don't break it or it will look stupid.
Step 5: Sand
Sand it or it will look like shit.
Step 6: Prime
