I did a rough assembly after pulling off the masking tape for the various labels/stickers. My pager doesn't say "Motorola" on the front like I want, so I bought a cheap little "Motorola OPTRX" sticker and Sharpied out the "OPTRX" bit. Looks pretty good!
Assembly was a little rough, and I don't like the gutter shadow between the screen and display. I might put white paper or something else back there soon. Still not half bad.
Oh, and did I mention it glows under black light?
@Famicoman This is dope!
I want it! 😁
@skynebula I'm planning to do a whole writeup for how to make one. Maybe one day I'd sell them, but definitely not right now.
I'm loosely following hackerscurator.com as they have a video for how they built one, but they didnt provide the image files or anything and use some different techniques. They sell them for $70-$80 each, while I think it cost me $30 or so to make this.
@Famicoman Oh no! Why did you send me this website?? (and how comes that I didn't know it?)... Know I'm gonna spend my day browsing it! :)
@skynebula It's a great site! I've contributed some of their VHS covers.
I would still kill for Dade's jacket.
@Famicoman I see that I have a promo mouse pad that is not listed... :)
@skynebula Send them a picture! They're really nice.
