I got my hands on a G-Boy Kit even after the kit was discontinued by tracking down somebody who did not want his.
Today I spent 4 hours troubleshooting the software on the wii because every time I tried letterbomb my wii would crash :|
but I finally did the software. Now I just need to actually assemble the G-Boy

Well Today I am starting the wiring of the G-Boy I have been delaying because I have been really busy (first week of classes and stuff) but now am going over to my uncles house because my place does not allow solding irons and he has a 300$ fancy iron I can *borrow* I will give a write up on it later tonight

I forgot to write up but this is a lot harder than I thought it would be (buts its been a good challenge) So I have installed every pcb and such and I wired up the batteries and such and now I can make the fan spin :) but I plan on doing the trim next week and hopefully getting it working

Well, first you need to remove all the components you cut through, and you can remove the components on the outside of the inner cutlines (aka the components in the lower-left corner of this image).
And you need to sand down the edges to avoid shorts, sand at an angle instead of flat with the edge to help with separating the layers, and you need to sand in enough that you remove the dremel marks you have, you can start with rather rough sandpaper to get in quickly, then increase the grit as you approach where you want to be. You can check with a multimeter if your sanding is good by comparing the resistances to this guide. The edges should be smooth to the touch and you should be able to see the different layers.

Otherwise, I have not seen any major red flags that I know of that would indicate that the wii would be dead, but you won't properly know until you are ready to power it on and see if it still boots.
