Some day, buddy.  Some day.  Looking forward to retiring someday to get out of the rat race and have time to game and visit cool dudes like yourself.

New addition to the collection. This awesome zelda 3DS. If you scoll up and look at the game room pics you will notice this 3DS box on top of the bookshelf.

Well when my brother bought this thing new he was just about to throw away the box (im glad i was at gamestop when he bought it). So i kept the box ever since. So he recently got a new 3DS and called me and asked if i wanted the zelda one. He sold it to me for a good price and here we are woo!

Ok so i need some help. When my brother bought the new 3DS he transferred all the data that was on this one to the new one. So i just charged it and turned it on. It acted like it had been factory reset. I had to set the time and date, pick a nickname, set up wifi and email

Anyway to the main point the zelda game is not on here. I cant find anywhere. And the card with the download cide is gone. He says when he ised it he probably just threw it away after. Is there anyway i can get the zelda game back?

If he previously downloaded it, I believe it is tied to his account. So he probably could re-download it, but most likely only on his new system, if that is where he transferred his account too. And from what I understand, you can't transfer games you've downloaded to other people's systems. Even if he found the code, it most likely would no longer work if he already used it.

there are places that make custom trans-lights the only example I can think of is Metal Jesus's  MAME cab:

 

 

I know a couple of guys that have these with custom marquees ,

 

there is probably a simple way to make them yourself with PETG plexiglass & translucent decals

 

will be great to see your progress on this, it'll be a very handsome way to display your GB games

I finally got a fay off of work and painted the insides. And i think this came out beautifully! Now i have to figure out how to take these zippo signs out of the top to replace them. They are just pieces of plexiglass with paint on em. They are really stuck in there though. Ive tried alot to get them loose but its still a no go

So there are 4 of them and from the looks of it they are just acrylic or plexiglass just glued to the top part of this display.

So there are 2 guys i have been talking to that also have done this transformation and both of them have cracked the thrirs trying to remove these things

yeah they prolly vulcanized on there pretty good with some hard-core epoxy

 

how about making a whole new top ?

 

or just dremel the zippo sign out leaving the inside part glues where it is .... or could "zippo" be sanded off ?
