    I was bored so I decided to upgrade my GBA
    Backlit mod
    glass lens
    paint job (bulldog adhesion promoter, and krylon)

    I'm done and I like it.

    Great Job! My backlight kit is still sitting in its box (been over 2 months!). You've given a little push to help me finally do it.

    Back lit conversion is the best thing you can ever do on a GBA. Well worth it.

    Nice paint job, is that adhesion promoter acrylic based? The only luck I've ever had spray painting plastic is with acrylic based spray paint like plastikote.
