There is a commercial cleaner you can buy that will make that yellowed plastic look new. Then, you paint it with UV resistant clear. Cute project.

I watched this video yesterday, then I found a Realistic Portavision portable TV (5") Radio combo at Goodwill for $25. It was new in the box. I'm going to try to put in a 5" LCD, Digital TV tuner and an input switcher. I want to be able to use everything that is still there and just allow them to play RetroPie in addition. Thank you for the inspiration!

when you put the paper over it I thought you was going to make a halo helmet console

i'd have placed the Rasp pi in the back where the plug ins were all accessible, so you dont have to take apart to connect things. neat retro tv tho.

Some hydrogen peroxide for whitening that yellow plastic, some love to polish that acrylic and you will have something superb.Well and I will also love a battery pack in all that free space and moving some usb ports to the back
