    DRxAndy What's a Dremel?

    it replaced the orange led, the little cresent on the console
    i'll take more pics when its completely complete


    Well I originally intended to get this done today (or yesterday) but i ran into a snag based on my own idiocy (and not taking my time).

    I cleaned the jewel to a nice clear shine, and all was well. There was a faint scratchity look, but not bad at all, very faint (i went up to 2000 grit sandpaper, then used some rubbing compound thats supposedly 10,000 grit) very smooth.

    Then i taped off the jewel with the professional masking tape (i love this stuff) i even got around the edges so it'd look like the original jewel, with the paint only on the bottom.


    and ended up forgetting to tape off a section for the design i wanted.. doh!
    ended up looking like this - which was totally unsatisfactory in my opinion


    so i decided meh, lets remove the gold
    and stupidly, i tried using nail polish remover. it was non-acetone.. but ended up really screwing up the jewel. So I decided to give up on this one, and visited nintendo's good ole' online store and picked up 2 new jewels for the price of $6.24 shipped.

    When they get here, i'll keep one in storage for swapability (can always return to stock if need be) and one to mod up with the logo.. not sure how this will turn out, but i'm hoping for the best.

    Expect a new update when I finish this bugger :D
