For my second build I wanted to go with a yellow and black theme and learning from my first build I knew I wanted to make a few changes.
Firstly I knew I wanted to have some sort of on screen battery monitor as well as an external indicator leds.
And I wanted to use the original power port unmodified so that means no usb for charging.
Also in my first build I didnt have access to the sd card without opening it up so I wanted to make sure I had easy access.
In my first build I had to gut out the battery bay and I knew in this one I wanted to keep it in tact.
Also I wanted to make sure I had access to the screen controls so I extended the wires and placed the controller in the bottom of the battery bay.
I also knew I wanted to keep the internals much neater and the wiring much tighter. Although it is still nothing "pretty" it's a lot better than my first build.
I liked the idea of having separable halves so I tried to add jst connectors to the L+R buttons but in the end I think they way I did it wasn't the best
