Lots of pictures here, But looks like the latest batch of C64 Mini hackers are quite the clever lot. Batch 21 has been arriving around the globe, and look wot some guys gone done!
First email arrived early this morning – Vinz!, You’re a genius…..My jaw dropped!
Some explaination of the pictures…….
In photo 1, I used a ruler with double sided tape to solder switches as straight as possible
in photo 2 I used white putty to color the caps
in photo 3 I cleaned the excess putty
in photos 4 and 5 I painted the caps with matt transparent water-based paint, in this way the filler is protected
in photos 6 and 7 the work is finally done
THANKYOU guys for figuring this out…..And, the secret?
Vinz used some putty, Dan, used epoxy putty. You can guess what i’m off to buy in the shops soon 😛
As for offering this colouring as a service from my end- i’m entirely unsure if it’ll be viable, Looks like a couple of hours work to do properly and tidy up. it also looks like something that’s extremely easy for someone at home to do, it just takes time…….
Took Vinz about 10 hours all up to get his Mini finished….what a great way to spend a weekend 🙂
