Intro: SNES Painted With Backlit LED Grill
Buy the stupid game bit sockets people, tired of seeing people melting good ink pens like crack heads to get this screws out. Mine cost $5 and shipped in 2-3 days!
Ok anyway this wil make your functional but faded nasty SNES look epic for low $$$
Put it on ebay too, started auction at $39
Step 1: Disassemble
Take it apart it's super easy, take pics or refer to these so you know how it goes back together. Be careful when removing the tape wire strip from the front middle, it's comes off pretty easily though.
Is yours as butt nasty as mine? My late grandma once had a funkolicious couch that would have matched this.
Step 2: Paint That Turd & Reassemble
I used 1000-1500 sandpaper and plain white spay paint made for plastics from lowes, I was there anyway getting other manly shit.
Step 3: Oh Yeah the LED
Skipped a step! I soldered in +/- lead wires at the power LED on the front of board and ran them to the back of the case to some LEDs
I put this one on eBay to fund other projects
Step 4: After Thoughts
I got 50 LEDs for next to nothing but it's a lot of tedious work soldering them to wires. Next console I will buy LED strips or circuit boards to nearly mount the LEDs.
