I am looking for some replacement buttons and case for my Gameboy Pocket, but I can't really seem to find anything. I was hoping to find some buttons and a d-pad in a funky colour like bright red or green. I want to replace one half of the gameboy pocket's casing. I also need a replacement screen cover (no trouble finding that!) I also need one of those "gamebit" screwdrivers (I need an extra long one)


This is what I have found so far:

Best I could find was a GBC shell:

Best bet if you want to mix up colours might be to pick up an old GB Pocket on ebay. You might be on your own with the buttons though; time to hit up the benheck forums for painting tips perhaps.

</p><p>that got me thinking! I have some acrylic paint and one of those air canister thingys. I used to do model cars.</p><p>EDIT:<br><br>I'm done! I put on some acrylic primer, red enamel paint, and some red glossy enamel paint on the buttons and the d-pad with a paint brush. I can always remove the paint later if I did a bad job on the paint...
