Presenting.... The L64! (L337-N64)

Some of you may have picked up that I was working on a new portable... Well, guess what, it's another N64!
I recycled the N64 and controller from the old one but all the other parts are new. It has an awesome LED-modded PSone screen, 4200mAh Li-ion battery and a custom vacuum-formed case by moi!

Prepare to be amazed...

:shock: "Yes, I am invincible" You don't know how much that quote fits you...and your uber skillz...once again you make Macgyver change back to Richard Dean Anderson (If such a task was possible) But my primary question is...how did you make the vaccuum forming table (I always spell vaccuum wrong). :D

Ooooooooh, looks so smooth. I can tell you spent a lot of time on that, and it definitely paid off. That's incredible, marshall. Wasn't that your first vacuum forming portable?

Btw. What did you fasten the two halves with. Screws? or glue maybe?

I'm installing screws, though in the pictures it was held by some hot glue. The glue holds pretty well.
The battery lasts about 2 and a half hours (4200mAh.)
Thanks for the positive comments :lol:

That is by far the coolest N64p that I have seen.
