The Future was 8bit

No spray cans in sight.. Golden C64

I'm sure you've seen a spray painted fake Golden C64 editions before.. I thought I'd go one better ;D 

23ct gold C64.. It's the future :D

  

23ct C64

First, a dug out a reasonable cased C64 without cracks/scratches.. No filling for me :D

 23ct C64

  Some say I have more C64's than pants. Some also say, I test and label them so I don't have to bugger around looking for workers!! (C64's not pants)

 23ct C64

Labels first!.. Freezer Spray is your friend. 

23ct C64

 Spray the back of the label.. And fingers crossed you should hear the glue crack.

23ct C64

Perfect.. It just fell off.. No bendage

23ct C64 

Same for this one too.  Happy days!

 23ct C64

Time for a quick clean

23ct C64

Looks dead nice now.. Before anyone has a go at me, it does have some marks on the rear of the case. It's not A1.. Hence it's a donor

 23ct C64

 Magic glue applied to test area inside the lid of the case

23ct C64

23ct Gold Leaf.. I'm a mentalist.

23ct C64

 Wow wee! :D Should have waited a little longer for the glue to dry a bit more before I stuck the gold on.. but hey

 23ct C64

Looks good so far.. But my room is now full of bits of gold floating around the smegging place 

 23ct C64

 I don't do things by half.. Looks a bit ruff.. But once the glue has set a little further you can flatten/polish it down. :D

 23ct C64

 Topside.. Touched up.. Still a little wet to handle

 23ct C64

Re-capped.. I'm gonna use this afterall! Wouldn't you?

 23ct C64

 Sorry, I just had too ;D

23ct C64

Doesn't look so good in this picture.

23ct C64

Looks dead nice when you get the light on it :D 

23ct C64

No bendage! :D

23ct C64

Yellow is the future.. But maybe not the grey function keys.. I think I'll swap them for brown.

 23ct C64

Still needs a little extra flatting.. oh and a Golden Label..  But I'd say it's better than I was expecting!. My own 23ct Gold C64 :D Happy Days

23ct C64

C64 Golden edition stylie label.. now that's attention to detail :D

23ct C64

Just one last thing to make it look even better.. 

23ct C64

I couldn't leave it with a dark keyboard.. Keyboard donated via a damaged/yellowed Aldi 64

23ct C64

Ok, so whats next? Silver Vic-20? ;D
