Hey guys! been away for a longggg while.

I'm curious if anyone could lead me possibly to a either a complete xecuter case such as this. If i can't find this as a complete i'm willing to piece it together as well,with a "Pro Switch" face plate and a dark blue case.

It would have to be made affordable not a price scalper. Any/All info would be appreciated. Thanks for your time.

If you are a member at TIZ or Xtras try hitting up FloydTheBarber (based in Canada) and I know he did have LCD screens not sure if he still does or not. Also consider PsychoChewbaca for the chip (hes the maker of the Xblast chips/OS hangs out at Assembler Games also based in Canada) if you havent already purchased a chip

Watch out on buying a case 99.9% of the coloured cases you see online now days are low grade knock offs and not legit Ghost cases. Real brittle plastic and the magnetic shields are bad for connecting points on XBOXs and frying them

I do know that here in japan you can buy a dead or alive blue ghost case.Thats very similiar to this case. problem is of course its a limited edition and their hard to touch under 300.00USD so i'm trying to not choose that option cause of price. But if i have to i'm prepared to get hate mail over the mods i plan for it. If i can find a Xecuter blue case or ghost blue case that isn't a knock off then ill grab one.

Lastly one last question, you mentioned that the sheild would touch and basically short to ground (ground out), isn't that the reason you remove the sheilding inside? Or did i miss a note?

Thanks again! = )

Yeah, for example if you were gonna chuck a 1.4 in a 1.6 case youd pull the shielding first. I only mention it because a lot of people dont know it and Id hate to see a person dump all that work and money only to have it go poof because of an avoidable mistake. And over the years Ive seen at least a dozen people sucked in by the knockoff Ghost cases, end up with some cracked POS that nuked their XBOX

There was a member on 360-HQ way back (name escapes me) that used to make (3D prnting) custom 360 cases I think hes based in the USA and might be an option (obviously gotta trawl the 360-HQ forum)

Also it might be cost effective to watch things like Ebay.ca and Kijiji cause you might be able to snag a Crystal for dirt cheap (I got one on Kijiji with XBOX carry bag, extra controllers and 13 games for $30) Just yank the innards and use the case. Even with shipping Im sure that kinda score would trump 300 for just a case.

Meant to reply sooner to ya,

Yea i've been modding PC&Consoles for a bit now ,enough to know right from wrong. Mistakes are valueable lessons,xD lol. I took the sheilding outta my 360 so , i knew what's up with that.

Anywho, reguarding the ghostcases. i had a blue ghostcase on my 360 but i wanted one for the OG xbox ever since i saw the japanese Kasumi-chan special edition case. But i dout ill ever pay over 100$ for a system that old. Callin' it like i see it.

Also yes i was going to ask if that would of been a possible option to have 3D printed case, and if they are quality-like(beings ive seen some shady 3D printing done,or rather cheap/light 3d printing examples) and if anyone has ever 3D scanned and printed a mock up xecuter face plate !? If so ill have to consider it as a possible option and look into it further.

Lastly i've found a few of the smoke gray "Special Edition" ghost cases here in japan but most hard either rough or limited to come by. but i might snag one if the plantery alignment is correct , xD. Cheers !
