good news! this weekend has been a very frustrating but in the end rewarding time!
friday and saturday resulted in a lot of mess ups, accidents, and anger. but, today, i was able to get some of it worked out.
i was able to fix the scratches and gashes. i think you can't tell that it was messed up at all. i'm now back to just needing to put a few clear coats on to protect it.
i was also able to get the snes cart slot relocated!
woo hoo! only took about 3 tries! and it's actually not such a bad thing! now i'm using the fc twin's snes cartridge slot. it has extended plastic with holes for screws. this will make it so
much easier to reinforce it! i just need to get some L brackets now. anyone know of a good place to get L brackets...?
the only other major electronics thing i still have left to do is wiring up the controller. which, i don't imaging being too difficult.
finally, i feel like i'm really getting somewhere on this!
things left to do (done
hook up player 2 port & a/v out
relocate snes cart slot
reinforce snes cart slot
relocate 8-bit/16-bit power switch
hook up controller
shave out good portion of inside plastic from back half of case
rewire one thing on leds so it doesn't drain batteries when not in use
a few other odds and ends
