    So I acquired an original PS3 vlx. It has some paint rubbed off where the previous owner rested his hand. What's the go to solution? Paint the whole thing? What kind of paint is best. Any info/input would be appreciated

    As Asiangrafx pointed out Powder Coating is your best shot, stripping down and panting the whole thing over in a thick enamel would be a 2nd choice.
    But Power Coating your best shot, as it be durable as well as it being nice looking. What ever shop you take this too will do the striping and cleaning for you.

    If you are not experienced and you did this yourself, you can make it look worst by painting it yourself.

    Happen to mine too...Ended up just putting a vinyl wrap to it. I hate painting & it would have cost too much to get it powdered coated.

    No I didn't but I was watching it. I saw it when it was first posted on eBay. When buy it now was at 125 plus 20 for shipping. I already have a og red vlx or I probably would have bought it to restore. The wear spot only looked to be under the button area. Nice find

    It all depends on how much you play and the sweatiness of your hands

    That is some really good on the job vinyl wrap. I might have to consider a Black Carbon wrap fiber on my VLX.

    Vinyl looks awesome. But I'm assuming that it drastically changes the feel of the fightstick. One of the things I love about my vlxs is the feel of the metal on my palm.

    It depends on the finish of the Vinyl. Powder coating will also change the feel.

    No the panel was from the original VLX the red one, i just did a switcharoo with my spare/beater stick. i then put the cheapass vinyl wrap to make it look different. Dont even notice the different feel to it.
