Intro: RetroFamipie - Famicom Based Retropie
This is yet another Case mod for a raspberry pi based RetroPie.
At this stage I am only posting pictures, and high level descriptions of the steps.
Please feel free to ask questions or details about the work involved
Step 1: Cleaning and Preparing the Case
3 phases here:
Dishsoap, sponge and toothbrush are you friend
Someone thought it'd be a good idea to custom paint it pink, yuk
paint thinner and toothbrush, took me about 2 hours.
The front of the case was quite yellowed, I used creme developer which really improved things.
Step 2: Fitting the Pi Inside
This step took a lot of effort figuring out how to place and secure the pi inside.
I had to dremel the case quite a bit
Step 3: Final Result
For the controllers I originally wanted to USB mod the original pads but 2 buttons is just not enough.
I was lucky enough to find these 6 buttons USB pads brand new, and they fit perfectly.
