Latest parts are on their way to me. Parts will ship to customers week of 6/24. Fully CNC machined aluminum housing for the Game Boy Advance!
This is a complete set of front and rear housings, designed to fit the AGS-101 game boy advance screen and electronics. No modifications needed to the housings as the backlit screen will drop right in. Parts are machined one at a time and will show machining marks. These housings will no longer use AA batteries as they incorporate the use an upgraded internal lithium battery.
Other items you will need:
Source your own battery, or purchase one made to fit here.
There has been an instance where an aftermarket glass screen did not fit these housings. I do not yet know the manufacturer. Please be advised and make sure to test fit before adhering your screen lens.

Finishing the aluminum surface by cleaning and applying a coating. This is the biggest benefit of these raw housings as you can create a matte surface, or a mirror finish before a coating is applied. A matte surface can be accomplished simply by using a 3M pad (ultra fine seems to work well). For polishing, there are many helpful youtube videos on how to polish aluminum.
