SNES controller inspired - jakejm79 - 12-14-2017

My build:

The side trim and L/R buttons will probably be switched to black (my ebay order was missing L/R buttons in black so am waiting on replacements).

I also have some cartridge blanks coming in the mail to try and clean up the top and hide the ports.

And for completeness, next to its older brother:

That turned out very nice! I actually like the red surrounds, but I agree that it is probably less SNES that way.

I also have wondered about trying to dye the START/SELECT somehow. I've seen a lot of builds that have a specific look and then the STA/SEL are just the normal gray (which I totally understand why). A while back, I remember seeing something where they were using hair or maybe clothing dye to change the look of silicon buttons.

Oh yeah, I just Googled, and here it is.

Thanks Ed, I will check out that, I actually have a spare set of silicone pads/start/select button maybe I will try dying those before I pull it all apart. I was thinking about a permanent marker, but I think the dye might be better.

Black shoulder buttons came in, now just have to dye the start/select buttons and make a cover from a blank cartridge. I think it looks a little more refined in black

Nice! And I really want to see how that dye goes!
