Painting a SNES
#1
I set up a snes in my bedroom the other night,
I have a very clean white one in a box, but the one I use has gone yellow.

So, for the laugh I am going to paint it, i've ordered some orange and purple vinyl dye which is meant to be better than paint.

I will post some pics of the yellow snes later, and then the results, no matter how bad or good lol.

think I would be tempted to take apart, remove the electronics and then spray paint, if you make a decent job and want it to last consider a clear varnish. Last thing you want to do is get paint on the cartridge contacts.

well yes, that is the plan,
I wasn't going to just spray it without taking it apart first.

just ordered some small nintendo decals for it.

so ive taken the top off, stripped down the buttons etc from the top half.

The circuit board and bits of metal look a bit mucky so I will give them a clean up when I take them from the bottom half.

Still waiting for paint to arrive anyway.

cant upload more pics at the moment for some reason,

I've done 3 coats now, its actually quite hard to get it looking nice and even but its getting there.
Not shown in the pics yet I got the controller port surround off the main unit so that can be painted with no risk to the internals.

Tomorrow I will get some clear lacquer and it should be all back together tomorrow night.

Then I may do another one, maybe white and red, or maybe a suggestion from you guys,
