The top part, with a hole for the cartridge and one for the 2nd player controller

Speaker hole pattern. There is a python script to make it on the main page .

Buttons with a custom layout by my local video game pro. The holes are irregular for the tool I had made little too small holes, si I had to dremel it bigger and of course, fix my mistakes with putty (the brown stuff)

The sound board. basically a NJM2013D double amp and 2x 9cm 4ohm speaker scavenged in a radiocassette ... yeah, found in the garbage.
20120816_082525.jpg
The sound circuit zoomed and the diagram by hand.

Fully assembled (except back panel), applying mastic, sand paper, mastic, sandpaper, ...

Back view with the horizontal bar that will block the screen of falling in the back. Also notice the small stands to level the screen to the opening.

Painting, round 1. 3/4 white acrylic paint, 1/4 water. Before sanding.
20120827_074714.jpg
After painting light grey and black for the front part, 3 layers of paint (grey, %20 2 for black) and sanding between each session, before the nice mate finish.

First assembly tests, everything falls in nicely. Buttons are not wired but it startups nicely and sounds works just fine.
20120829_082512.jpg
With the buttons, after the varnish (mate). Not bad, that's the final appearance.
