Source for replacement C64 Shells?

I think some other people on the forum bought from this source, or a similar one. However those are C64C shells in various colours. Your motherboard will fit a C64C shell, but it won't be a breadbin anymore.

Of course you could try to find a broken C64 with intact shell, in case that is easier or cheaper these days when people seem to be asking $$$ for just a screw.

You know, that reminds me. I am still waiting for my new C64 key-caps along with my SX64-themed case.

 

@VicViper: I have a few bread-bin 64s sitting around here. If you do not mind cleaning one up, I will pull the innards out and send you the case. Just cover the shipping.

You are a swell person. I'll send you a PM.

Where exactly did it break off from, and do you still have the pieces? If it's not too bad you might be able to stick it back together with some acetone - just use a q-tip to brush some on the edges and then hold the pieces together, being careful not to get any on the outside of the case as it will melt it. I did this with one of mine that was starting to crack at one corner of the keyboard and now there's just a barely visible line where the crack was. If you've got some old broken toy or something made from ABS then you can cut small pieces from it and stick it on the inside for reinforcement (if there's room for it where the break occurred)

 

As for the color, there's always retrobright but I haven't tried it myself yet so can't really give any advice on that

I have a motherboard but no case so if you get a replacement maybe you could send the old one to me. I'm about 100 mi from you in WNY.

yes, I can swing that. Should cost about 15 bucks to ship to you, I'll PM you when I get the new one from OLD CS1. Edited by VicViper
