Reader Núshio is never one to hold back (just check out his comments!), and when it comes to painting his DS with his love of Nintendo, that's a good thing. He and his friend Kiwii undertook a project of epic proportions that turned this DS into a monument to fanboyism -- and that's something we can get behind.
This paint job (which looks so sweet next to New Super Mario Bros.) isn't quite finished -- the pair plans to redo the whole thing, as they noticed some discoloration after the application of a coat of gloss -- but Núshio had some great tips to offer up for those who are considering a similar project:
- Get decent paint. I used 'Vinci.' Never again!
- Be patient.
- Be careful when disassembling the DS (he used tutorials from YouTube).
- Don't get mad, get even. Keep track of every single bit and piece of plastic.
- Once complete, it's a real rewarding experience.
