I tried to go for an 80’s NES theme. Not perfect but not bad.

      It had been sitting in water so the main board needed to be cleaned. Also the AV jacks on the front were broken so they had to be re-soldered. Also the front glass was badly scratched so I managed to polish most of them out using cerium oxide powder and an electric sander. Ideally I would have ground down the area first with silicon carbide but that adds a lot of time to the process, I still may do it but not any time soon.

        That’s the coolest thing somebody did to a CRT I’ve ever heard. Great job! I had one and didn’t knew what happened to it. It just didn’t turn on
