PS2 Carbon Fiber Case –
I dont have an XBox yet to customize inside and out (yet), so I decided to look for something to do to my PS2 case. I am a member of a chevy truck forum (mychevytruck.com) and they have random group buys that various companies put on to give the members a discount if there is enough demand.
THis particluar group buy was from Phoenix Imaging, a company that does a process called Hydro Graphics. THis is a process done mostly to auto interior and exterior parts. The process can be read about on their website (go to the 'about' section).
I had it done in Blue Carbon Fiber. THese pictures do it no justice, it looks awsome, and it gets in all of the details too. You'd think this thing was custom painted, and they clearcoat and polish it too.
If anyone if interested in some sort of group buy please PM me. If we get a few people who want to send in car parts/gaming consoles/ whatever, they will give us a similar discount. I am wanting to do this again with an XBox in the next few weeks.
WHat will happen is:
1. All interested people email me and I will take a tally
2. I contact the company and give them all of the names and contact numbers/emails
3. You talk/email to the PR person (Robyn) at Phoenix imaging and discuss what the price and what you are sending in
4. You pay Phoenix imaging (I paid through paypal) and send your part to them. THe price includes return shipping.
5. We had several hundred pieces sent in and I recieved my case back in about 4 weeks.
Note: I bought an extra case from richspsxparts.com and send it in to have done so I wouldent miss playing my PS2.

I saw your post at DMS3 site and I was thinking about getting mine wood grained and my xbox too.
Thanks for the info
I think it would look pretty cool wood grained. A good conversation piece.
I paid $60 (including return shipping) with the group buy, but I wouldent pay anymore than that anyway.
Im sure they would just charge that if you showed an interest.
I'm putting together my Modded Xbox this week, so soon ill be sending it off to have done. THe X will be Carbon Fiber (undecided on color), with the rest of the accents painted gloss white, the jewel will be cleared with a round cathode lighting it up, the front LEDs will be blue also, and each controller port will have a different color LED lighting it up. I plan on doing the 12v 80mm fan blowing air out of the rear and one of those side mounted fans customixed to fit into the sidewall blowing air inward.
Should be a nice little project.
Contact Robyn at Phoenix Imaging, she is the person that coordinates the prices.
