    Ok, i want to do a custom paint job on my xbox 360 using either Krylon fusion plastic spray paint if i can find the clear coat that goes with it. Or Regular spray paint. Either paint i use I am going to be putting adhesion promoter on first to make the paint stronger. I want a flat black base with Dark purple designs on the sides using stencils.

    I know i have to wash all the surfaces first to get off any oils that will mess up the paint, and i know the proper order for which all the paints need to go on, but I have a few questions and need some help.


    ~1. Will i need to use primer in between the Flat black base and the purple stencil designs to get the right color? or will it mess it up, or do i need to use something elese?

    This is the color of purple i am going for--

    What will i need to do to get this color to show up perfectly on top of a flat black base?


    ~2. When i put on the clear coat at the end will it make it look glossy? or will the clear coat be invisible?


    ~3. As for the stencil, I want to print out a picture and cut it out with an exacto knife, Will this work?

    Thank you to those of you who will actually read this and attempt to help me :)

    I think the 360 will look great in that colour..........you will need to put some purple LED's in the console and pad(s) aswell ;) MY m8 has a purple ROL in his console and in his pads....looks awesome!

    Don't use Krylon Fusion. You will not be happy with the results. I painted my 360 a few years ago with black krylon fusion and it turned out like $hit. I just ended up buying a replacement case for it.
