Xbox slim filled with bugs lol

Postby Chronic1553 » Sat Aug 17, 2013 8:42 pm

Ok i got an Xbox slim off eBay for $65, controllers wouldn't sync can no green light, so needed a new rf module. anyways im mad i couldn't get any before pictures and the reason why was as soon as i started taking it apart bug/beetles started literally pouring out, i had to sprint across the apartment for the vacuum. i had to take this thing apart with the vacuum tube tucked under my arm lol. it must have been kept in like a garage or barn because the rf module was covered in rust and so was the cage. anyways i got everything cleaned up, and i actually need to test the old rf module now that i ran it thru the ultrasonic cleaner, i had to run the bezels also. Sorry for no pics just thought it was funny, well funny after i cleaned up all the bugs. I was tempted to mention it in the feedback but i figured i got a slim for $65 lol.

:lol:

WD40 is pretty good at removing rust mate... then go over it with the trusted old thinners, should shine up nicely, if its really bad take a fibre glass pen or wire brush to it, dremels also hVe some pretty cool buffing attachments...

Let us know if you get it running...
