Some of y'all know how fond of my GB micro I am. Noones heard the story of one of my two GBA SP's. Its had a rough life. I bought it back in 10th grade (2 years ago) from a kid at school for $5. Its case was horribly scratched, so I decided I'd paint it. Of course, I only painted the top part, on the outside and did it badly. I sanded it and painted it white. It looked... bad. To say the least. So I lend it to my cousin, who leaves it laying around. Surely enough, his little sister gets a hold of it, puts stickers all over it. It took me nearly a month to get clean and get all the stickers off. It STILL has sticker residue on it. So it gets put in a box, in pieces from being taken apart and cleaned. (this is a year later). I found it recently (yesterday). I put it back together, and sure enough, it still had a full charge. I let the battery drain, charged it up and it works great. The case is scratched to hell and the white paint looking bad as ever from the sticker residue (and the process of of removing said stickers + residue), today I decided i'd try my hand at repainting it again. This time I did it up in black. It looks decent, although the little Nintendo logo is gone (was long gone. fell off quite some time ago). I might go on dealextreme.com and buy the black and blue housings and mix them. Blue body with black screen sounds pretty badass. Pretty much what I tried to accomplish but failed so badly at. Might put pics up if I feel like it later.
