I recently picked up an N64 lot, and it included an Everdrive v2.5.
It looked terrible. It had been hand painted a bunch of times, the cutout on the top was done really poorly, and it felt cheap. The internals rattled around in the case. It worked though!
Here’s a quick gallery of my repair process.
I’m extremely happy with the results, and for the price, it was well worth it as a small project. I’m sure I’ll be getting many years of use from this purchase.
