Inside, it is all reduced (the hot silicone I put) and painted all black. I myself have made all cables and connectors for quick disconnects. I’ve used another command of SNES, and I trim the motherboard to the maximum. I making connections, this time, from the controller chip on the motherboard. I have added to the cover, a sponge from those used in speakers to more cushion if possible noise, and on the outside cover, I have put you a new pad not slippery. On the outside, I’ve also painted it black and I have added new stickers of companies-developers of shoot’-em-up games. Also has new skins by the sides (stars) and the front (continued with the drawing of the main art/skin).
It has two cap for buttons R2 and L2 me too much (personalized with the logo of Konami).I leave them in case in the future I put another motherboard.
Finally, I have put a white bat top, the other transparent is slippery. This is rougher to the touch. And I’ve also put six Seimitsu buttons 30mm with bagel, with the typical colors of the SNES controller(red, blue, yellow and green).
