Why is there so little interest? Have I done something wrong? Do people just not care anymore?
MIGHTYPUTTY!!!!! It's basically epoxy putty, but instead of two sticks each stick has two layers (green and white). And it's greenish when mixed together. This is my first time with epoxy putty and I must say it's pretty cool. The box says to wear gloves so it can't be good for you though. Also notice the picture of Billy Mays (R.I.P.)(the new guy sucks). Maybe he died of exposure to all those products he demonstrated?
The case is full of big holes. Seriously. So I added this grille (from the bottom of an N64 case) to one of them.
I took the screen off too so I could work on the bottom more easily:
I removed the jacks from the side bit. The dremel drill bits are great for cleaning out hot glue! It turned out that I had to remove that part, so this was kind of pointless.
After that I attached the side panel with Mighty Putty. It actually doesn't stick very well at first, then it gets really hard and adhesive. The side panel has spaces around it but I can't fill them because of the way the case is put together. The top part has most of the open frame that I'm trying to fill in, but of course the N64 and most of the parts will be mounted to the bottom. A top cover or two-half case would have been better, but I'm trying to be a bit creative and use this case. I have to get some Perspex soon to do the top and bottom parts. Also, this machine is going to have controller wings. Why? Because I'd never be able to get it closed otherwise. The sticks would hit the top part.
I got out the Bondo too, and did the side panel. What I'm using is Spot and Glazing putty, I hope it's the right stuff. This stuff doesn't have a long working time and is kinda goopy. The best way to apply it is with a finger (gloved or finger-condom'ed of course). Also, latex gloves suck, my fingers smell like solvent anyway. Anyway, this is kind of a crappy Bondo job, but it's the first one I've done, ever.
And of course, the customary overall shot of what I've done today. That's it, please leave a comment, even if it is mean and slanderous!
