Custom Wii Stand

I originally had this stand for my Wii, but after using it for a few months, the fan started dying. My dad was going to throw it away, but my brother was like "Wait! Why don't we mod it?" So we decided to do a bit of modifications. Nothing serious, just a bit of painting...

Here it is before any changes...



I stated out by taking it apart. There weren't any visible screws, though, I found them underneath the pads on the bottom of the stand...



Here's the inside...



I painted the inside silver, like the original Wii stand...



I wanted to get rid of that ugly GameStop Logo, so I painted over it with silver...



I printed out a Wii logo, turned it into a stencil, and taped it onto the side...



I used a plastic ruler to scrape off some of the blur around the logos...

Before


After


I decided to put a Wii logo on front too, so I expanded the silver box and made a smaller stencil...



And finally, I used some paint thinner to get rid of some of the leftover unwanted paint. Here are some of the final pictures...













I think it turned out pretty well, especially considering that I don't do stuff like this often.
