Default Custom Paintjobs? - 04-17-2009, 04:04 AM

I want to paint my mini....
but I've never painted anything before and dunno where to start...

nothing fancy, just a matte black/gunmetal color on the lid

worth a try by myself or should I find someone to do it?

While I have never tried, if you can find a broken bezel or something, it would be a good starting point to learn. Maybe eBay has some cracked ones or something that you can pick up cheap.

I may try to do the same eventually as well with one of mine, I just don't have the time or patience right now due to other commitments.
