    Hey everyone! I wanted to show off my new, blue housing shell for my Wii. I pretty much spent most of the day putting this thing on. The Wii is a total b**ch to work with! I swear, it was like "screw, screw, screw, big screw, small screw, tri wing screw" [​IMG] anywho, it's all done now, so I'm happy!

    Now that I'm done sharing my hardware mod, I would love to see if any of you have anything similar to share [​IMG]

    Having done anything cool like that, but it's still really cool!
    Edit: Owch. I just said cool twice. You can make that thrice now.

    I like ^ especially being able to see inside but the first blue one looks good (except for the buttons - would've liked them blue as well)

    Bladexdsl - I notice you have 3 wireless Gamecube controllers, don't you find they really spoil the effect ?? (I only have the one [​IMG] )... I just wish some company would invent a more compact version of these that don't overlap the edge

    They both look really nice, especially the first one. Did you paint it yourself or did you order it from somewhere?

    It looks really good. I'm jealous. If the buttons were greyed to match the base, it'd be perfect in my eyes. Very cool.

    Looks good Lighty. I purchased one on EBAY that I made a review on here that came out good:

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=140063&hl=

    The buttons on mine are chrome and I purchased separate screws to replace the tri-wing ones.

    Hope it works out for you. [​IMG]

    yeah but don't forget post is $25 so that totals to around $66 gotta be careful buying stuff overseas they may look cheap but the postage ends up making it more

    i've got mine on ebay now if you want it [​IMG]

    $66 for 2 doesnt sound bad to me. $33 each thats a score in my eyes as i see just one of them for $50 on ebay [​IMG]

    lol that's what I was expecting from the title, maybe someone in a blue shell fursuit. I guess I have lowered expectations of humanity.
