I apoloise for the image quality.
Step 1: Open It Up
Be careful with the insides of the cassette, some of them you need.
Disclaimer: I'm not liable for any damage to your videos cassettes or tools or yourself.
becareful with tools!!!!!
Step 2: Tape Reels
Simply snap these off.
I had already snaped them off before i took the picture, but you can see the remains of the plastic where i failed to snap it off cleanly.
Step 3: 851ft of Tape!! Yippee!
After disconnecting the end of the tape you need to glue the empty reel to the case.
Be careful with glue!!!!! kids need to seek adult help!!!!
Step 4: The Messy Part
Almost like a plastic wall,there is a piece of plastic that will snap off, but this time you'll need to use cutters.
The part in the picture I left on so it would keep its structural integrity, the some on the other side. Only the middle comes off.
The circle come off as well but be careful not to damage the outer plastic. The screw bit can come off also since you don't really need it.
Step 5: Finishing Touches
Step 6: Operation
Now you have a Retro case for whatever you want.
Hope this was usefull, not something I use all the time but a good little project I did in my spare time.
