Delving into the world of Game Boy hardmods for the very first time with this Game Boy Color! I’ve seen various mods for the Game Boy family of consoles for years, but I’ve never worked on one myself. Time to break that streak by upgrading this Game Boy Color with a beautiful FunnyPlaying Q5 IPS display and a full reshell kit including fresh buttons, rubber pads, and everything else needed to make this console feel brand new.
