Harvesting 8580 chips is a wasteful business. A SID2SID takes 2 of these. For every chip you get you end up with an empty C64C wedge case.
I’ve been trying to come up with an aesthetically pleasing wedge case, as I have a shedload just lying around. This is my first (relatively successful) attempt.
The beige paint is “Ford Coral Beige” from Halfords (the car and bike place that pops up too much while you’re watching Top Gear). It’s a bit lighter than true C64 beige. They have another one which is a bit darker and closer, which I’ll introduce with another unit in a couple of posts.
This is supposed to be a mashup of the C64C case with the classic C64 colour scheme.
Let’s have a look then.
