    nice paint job
    I assume you make sure it has some sort of clear-coat to protect it among other things.
    If not,clear-coat it now.

    Looks nice, I wasn't expecting it to, I don't know why. Actually looks like something Nintendo would do for a special bundle.

    Yup! Of course I clear-coated. Or else it would just be chipping off lol.
    the wii u before was in horrible condition. Imagine a cd you just found from the 1990's scratched, but all around lol.
    I'm just glad it came out pretty good :)

    I opened this thread half expecting this to be someone trolling and they just spilt a bucket of paint on their Wii U and snapped a photo or something to that effect XD.

    Nicely done! I'm jealous :-P

    Yeah I used a 120 grit to start and finished with a very fine grit for a smooth finish.
    Haha is that a challenge? I'll try and do my gamepad and pro controller soon when I have free time. I'll post pics of them when I do :)
