    Something worth trying to save yourself on sanding time is to tape your analog stick and dpad in place from the front. And I mean cover it in tape so that when you apply your abs from the back it will be smooth on the front without so much excess to sand later.

    Thanks for the tip. I've try to use regular clear tape before but it doesn't hold good enough but electric tape works better and it doesn't leave any sticky residue like the clear tape:D

    Case work looks slick. Controller+pack wiring is neat as well. Looks great so far!

    This project is so awesome. One of the cleanest GBA portables I’ve seen. Keep it up!

    Thanks as long you have thinner wires everything comes out clean and organized but my wiring isn't as clean as the other members but it's something :)

    N64 portables like this have a special place in my heart, brings me back to the old days of **NAME OF SITE REDACTED**.

    It's finally complete here's the last few internal pics I've decided to keep the screen control inside the case since I didn't feel like drilling holes in front of the case but overall I enjoy building this portable :) Snapchat-830996146.jpg Snapchat-2000883365.jpg Snapchat-326001775.jpg

    Love the paint. What type of paint did you use for such a smooth finish?
