    Hi all anyone help me out.
    I am after some AR (Anti Reflection )Film for my Afterburner Front light mod that I fitted to my GBA.

    I got a spare off a mate years ago but it got dust under it so was thinking about re-doing it (properly without the dust!!!)

    Cheers for helping!

    Afterburner kits are insanely hard to find now, so finding just the AR film for it might be rather difficult.

    Another option you can try is to get a broken GBA SP (frontlit, not backlit) off Ebay, and steal its reflective AR film. I have no clue if it will work well with the Afterburner fittings, but it would certainly be easier to find.

    EDIT: the guy at http://www.pocketheaven.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=6813 claims you can add the SP's antireflective film to the regular GBA without too much trouble, according to his posts in that topic.

    Thanks Dan, I had seen this but he is really doing the job of taking the whole frontlight out of an SP and transplanting it into a stock GBA.
    but removing stuff from one to another just stinks of dust / damage etc. was after new replacement AR film or equivilant.

    I understand that's what the tutorial is about. However, at the very end he suggests taking the AR film from the SP and using it on the GBA, and that's what I was commenting about.

    Truth be told front lights don;t look good at all. Best to find a gameboy sp with the back light.
