    I put metal locks in the rest of my joy-cons, got around to it so the right neon one would stop flying off the ring-con :rofl: Also replaced the SL/SR/sync board with a broken ribbon cable in the left neon one.
    I also replaced the glass screen protector that's been on my Switch since I bought it used years ago (whenever the firmware diggers warned us that a patched model was coming, so I went out and got an original one). The positioning of the old protector wasn't quite right so one whole big triangular corner looked slightly different as it was a bit lifted I guess. Recently it got a little crack at the top which finally inspired me to replace it, the actual screen underneath is still pristine so it served its purpose admirably. The new one went on really well and makes it look as good as new.

    Does the front door knob coming off count?

    Modded a Gameboy Light, reason being a ton of the original paint had worn off down to the plastic, so i got some rustoleum pale gold and painted the shell, its not an exact match but its good enough for it to be presentable.

    yeah, some masking tape, i suggest the blue colored one, and don't be afraid to bring it with you in the store, it helps better with color matching, and use an xacto blade or box cutter blade so you can cut and tuck the tape in the cracks around the bezel to prevent overspray.

    Soldered a new 18650 cell for a bluetooth speaker a few days ago.
    It was not fun. Soldering a cell without a spot welder is very difficult.

    Well I did my first ever GBA battery mod from scratch. (That's a magnetic charging cord, so I don't accidentally break the port off)

    I also modded a bootleg GBC game shell to accommodate and protect my GBxCart RW flasher:

    And finally, my latest "fix" was using that cart flasher above to flash the BennVenn firmware file from my PC to the BennVenn ElCheapo SD v2.0 cart directly, because I had soft-bricked the cart two years ago and didn't have any way to unbrick it until now. Glad to have revived my $80 investment back from the dead!

    i make an adaptor for my wiimote from 12 volt DC to 3.3 volt DC. i buy adjustable DC stepdown for $1. and it works great. wiimote working voltage range at 2.5-3.5 volt DC. but now my wiimote have some problem. so it works only at 3.2-3.5 volt DC (with rumble and sound) if you want to make like this one, dont put the voltage more than 3.5 volt DC. or it will screw the motion control.

    Aside from my Gameboy Light, i'm working on a Galaxy Note 4 that needed a minor bit of work, new battery, new S-pen, new camera module and bump, figure i might as well do something with it, and since its network unlocked i can use it with my existing sim card and before anyone says about android 6 being old, I unlocked the bootloader, installed TWRP, and put a custom build of android 11 on it.
