C64 Mini Repair - bodging a Raspberry Pi into the case (with video)

By Gavin Davies

I bought a broken C64 mini from eBay, hoping for an easy fix. It was described as not powering up. After many hours gazing through my microscope looking for shorts, my kids suggested I “put something else” in there… So I found a Raspberry Pi 3 that I thought was busted but actually turned out to work fine when I gave it enough amps, and installed RetroPie on there…

Then all I had to do was carve up the C64 mini to make room for the slightly larger RPi board!

Can I do it without a major injury?

Soooo.. I basically bodged a Pi into a case that wasn’t the right size, not really sure what I’ve achieved here! Haha, well I had fun.
