While its getting tougher to do Everything as Age takes its toll, I had been wanting to do this Mod for years!

I wasnt quite thrilled, when my Pirates Chest opened, so I wanted to spice it up.

Why Not add some Gold Coins, and Real Gems? I have plenty of chipped Stones. So, Pearls, Opals, Topaz, Amethyst, Tanzanite,
Garnets, Lapis etc, were arranged. (and Bones)

The Coins that cover the screw holes stay in place with Magnets that lock it well, to the screw heads.

Im going to beef up the lighting, and maybe paint the chest, and Ill share more, but here is the start.

Thanks for looking....Art

Very cool, please post some pics when it is installed, and if you want to go all out a vid of it opening in the darker gameroom!

Looks cool. I can't tell from the pic, but I remember painting the underside of the red parts white on mine and it looked nicer when it lit up. Those tiny coins are a nice touch!

Looks great! You definitely need to paint the chest to go along with it. Also, if you haven't already, do the parchment paper mod to get better light diffusion.

What type of paint did you use? Would that work with Parchment Paper mentioned?

Thanks for the input!

I found the posts and thread, but didnt see any pics of an outstanding paint job on a trunk?
Anyone able to share?

You don't need to paint it. Just use some white baking parchment paper. I believe I have 3 or 4 layers of it taped to the underside of the chest. Works great for defusing the led's and is non permanent.

The mod looks great. Definitely want to see it in the game

I painted underneath with white watercolor paint so it would be translucent and removable but it looked great and I never removed it.

Here’s mine that my daughter and I painted, compared to the original.
