    I've been lurking on the forums and reading guides and stuff recommended to me for a couple days and I'm gonna start making my portable soon. I'm planning on making a slightly altered Gwii to start out with using the usb-c charging/drive on the bitbuilt store instead of the external usb port found on the original Gwii. here's my parts list so far if I'm missing anything important it would be great if i could get some help with what I'm missing or unnecessarily including.
    Parts
    • a 4 layer Wii for trimming
    • Gc+
    • Gamecube controller for buttons joysticks etc
    • pth 08080 regulators (not sure where to buy)
    • red charging board (same as regulators)
    • Samsung fit 256 or 128 usb
    • 5" 4:3 screen (not sure if im going to vga mod but i possibly might)
    • on off switch
    • magnet wire
    • printed out Gwii cad files
    • 4 18650 batteries
    • usb c charging/ internal hard drive thing
    • SP-1511S-3 speaker(s) and amp
    • wire /magnet wire i belive 22 and 26 gauge
    • fan + heat sink
    • m2 screws
    • solder
    • power management system
    • tacts for sholder buttons and face buttons
    Tools
    • soldering iron (got one already)
    • dremel
    • multimeter (possibly have one)
    so that's my parts and tools list I'm not sure where to buy one or two things but i'm sure i can get by .hopefully i can get some of these things soon but first I'm going to get the wii and install portablizeMii after this ill get down the omgwtf trimmed motherboard and setup and hopefully get this thing done eventually :) .also any help is appreciated.

    If you're planning on getting a PMS and USB-C board, you don't need the red charging board or the pth regs, as the PMS replaces them. Additionally, you won't need an on/off switch as the PMS has an on/off button built into it as well.

    Which soldering iron and multimeter do you have? If they aren't great we can suggest better ones, since those can easily ruin boards if they aren't good enough

    Had no idea that the Wii power management board replaced the red charging board and regulators thanks for that.

    Not sure what soldering iron and multimeter I have I'll have to find them later tonight.

    Yeah it comes with it's own built in regulators and BMS which helps save space and time. If you read the description for it on the bitbuilt store you'll see it comes with some nice features which are pretty nice to have.

    If your trying to make a new thread just go to the forums and press the new thread button. But if your trying to make a wii portable what I've found to be the most helpful/ what some people have sent me is generally to read through the guide hub and especially the wii trimming guide here https://bitbuilt.net/forums/index.php?forums/wii.101/ and just read through work logs to generally l kinda see how it works.

    heres my soldering iron and multimeter and apperantly Dremel I forgot about not sure if they're good or not but hopefully they are.
    Also after next I'm going to get myself a 4 layer Wii and install portablize Mii. Probably after this I'll begin trimming getting parts etc.

    It's a miracle someone bought actually decent equipment for a change! Those will all be perfect

    Hally-fukken-looyah some good tools for once, those will do you just fine. I recommend using the thin cut EZ-Lock Dremel wheels when trimming the Wii, I find they jump about less.
