    If you planned on clear coating the snes after you painted it, you could mask off the original logo with masking tape using an exacto knife to trace around the letters.. once it was painted black you could carefully peel the tape up and then clear coat the whole thing to make it nice and smooth over the logo..

    But if you mean a small sticker i get what your saying, also i could paint the little ninny logo white, just the letters and the hoop!!

    I'd luv to do something with a few leds like maybe put some inside the cart slot so once the game is plugged in and the snes switched on you'd get a glow coming from out of the snes cart slot and it'd light up the game pak as well.

    Would only really work in dark rooms!! lol.. But if the led(s) were bright enuff and say maybe in red or blue it would look pretty cool..

    Am i taking this snes modifing alittle to far :P
    I love your paintjob by the way, I'm really tempted to do that to mine also.

    As for the LEDs...I don't thing this would be too hard to do! All you have to do is snip on of the leads to the power LED run a wire to the cart slot, hook up a few LEDs in series and run another wire to the other side of the snipped power LED lead!

    In theory, that should work.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Well, I was thinking in terms of a stock-looking gray repaint. So masking tape would actually work perfectly in that sense, provided you can find just the right shade of gray paint to match the original tone.

    Clear coating (in matte finish) is probably a good idea as well; that way, you'll probably never have to repaint the thing again.

    I'm fairly handy with a spray can, thanks to years of building car models -- maybe I should start restoring old SNES decks...

    Well, following standard electronic repair theory, anything's possible as long as you don't let the smoke out.
