That looks really good but it needs some bondo. Its really a lot like mine except mine is made with an n64 case :P I might take some pics of it cause It might not ever get finished.

yea i am well aware of the lack of bondo, was a bit of a rush job to get it done for MGC, didnt quite make it but i basically built this thing in just over 2 weeks!

But the fact is it looks a lot better without bondo on it than mine does with bondo... But all well mine might work eventually.

nice! what color are you planning on painting it? and are you going to bondo in the holes in the back of the handle or leave it like that?

It will be silver because krylon metallic is an almost perfect match for the silver nintendo used on the silver cubes! i doubht i will bondo on the handle itsself but the gaping holes in the case will be filled and all my crappy bondowork will be improved, because like i said it was a really rushed job, i did what little bondo is on there in like a couple hours lol

Dude... you make me SICK with your 1337 80n|}0 5K1LL5! :shock: That mend between the controller halfs and the console casing... *shakes head* just wow man... I gotta say, I've never been one for frankencasing, but you really seem to be able to make them as aesthetically pleasing as possible. :) But, NOTHING'S gonna beat the gloss black top and brushed aluminum sides of my GC laptop! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!! :P Seriously though... my case probably won't end up turning out as well as I hope it will... good job on yours so far. I'm sure you have some finishing touches to make on it as well. Keep us posted and keep the pictures comin'! Just promise me you'll buy a CF DD replacement add-on board from me once we get that project finished (where are you, R3ason!?), and build another GCp with it. :wink: Just think about it... you'll be able to make your case probably 1" thick if you take out the disk drive and use CF cards! :twisted:

Oh, we'll need to do this for our Gamecube HDD project, won't we? Or we could just downlo... hmm... okay wait... I don't want to get in trouble here, but if you already own the game, is there something wrong with torrenting the ISO? :?

Ah, anyway, what's this about loading the DOL onto your GC? Do you load the DOL onto a memory card and boot it off that... or... what? Would this mean you'd need a modchip, a memory card... loader... thingy (I don't know what they're called! Leave me alone!), AND a BBA? That's a lot of gear. :shock: I'm not really "with it" as much as I should be when it comes to GC modchips 'n stuff. >.>

i would charge somewhere around $500+ if i had to supply all parts, with the buyer supplying the cost would go down some
