I spent yesterday and a little bit of today doing a massive overhaul on my DMG gameboy. It was half dead when I got it off ebay for $5 with some dead pixel columns, a lot of grimy dirt and some plastic things shoved up its headphone orifice. Well I’ve given it a makeover, and I’m pretty happy with the results, especially for it being my first experience with the modifications I preformed. Sure it’s not all perfect, but I don’t mind: I scratched the lcd when removing the backing foil, performed some shocking dremel work and the dye isn’t consistent.
I’m also waiting on the screen protector for the gameboy and I think I’ll put some cool pattern on the grey boarder of it or something, not sure still.
If I can do this, and do it badly, then anyone can do this.
Modified DMG with:
– dyed golden yellow case and vinyl getlofi sticker stencil
– nonfinite white backlight with on/off switch
– getlofi pitch/clock module control with on/off switch.
here’s some more details about my mod:
