Just Dreamcast Mods

I was so proud of myself. It only took a total of 24 hours to do all of my mods. without soldering, power tools or previous experience. used small screw drivers for drills. pumpkin carving tools to cut out peices. if you wanna see what all i did just go here. http://j11.foreverwicked.net/dreamcastmo...
