Yoooo, so I tried my hand at modding for the first time and I jumped straight in at the deep end and decided to purchase and modify a Gameboy Original. Needless to say, after 2 failed attempts and a hell load of "oh no I done f***ed up", I managed to get the result shown above.
I back-lit the screen with a V3 'Mint' Backlight from Nonfinite Electronics which works perfectly and matches the colour scheme. I ordered some new buttons from eBay and because I had clear housing for my Gameboy, I was able to paint the inside with little difficulty.
Just a heads up because I know what some people are like this is not for sale
I made this for myself, and because of that, I get the crummy first timer mistakes.
Worry not, I loved doing this and I hope to learn more about modifying Gameboys so I can design some more themed ones for conventions and all that jazz (maybe even a commission or two???).
Ah well, I'm pleased with it, and I hope you like it.
Blood, sweat and tears guys, blood, sweat and tears.
