Allow me to introduce my apprentice ................
*edit* Added a youtube video :
This of course is a N64 portable. I named it the Darth 64 because my kids say it resembled the Darth Vader helmet they have
I wanted a system that was bulletproof. I bought some from this site and the build quality was shaky to say the least. Hot glue just wasn't an option.
So I used a case that I could mold into what I wanted but could still be put back together with screws. All integrated plastic parts were ABS Cement melted and fused to the original case, then hard filler bumper epoxy was used then soft fill bumper epoxy for the finishing touches.
The N64 motherboard was attached using plastic stand-offs that were Abs cemented and epoxied in. Then the cart slot was attached to the motherboard with l-brackets and nuts/bolts.
So everything is rock solid. Shake it or drop it and nothing will come loose or rattle.
List of features:
Psone screen with original backlight.
Flush mounted headphone jack.
5000maH Li-Poly batteries with quick charger and protection circuit.
Gamecube style joystick and d-pad.
Rear shoulder buttons and twin z buttons.
Cart slot relocation.
All I have left to do is wet sand the case and polish it in 7 days after the paint is dry.
Here's how it all started and went down.
