Floppy disk Amiga 1200 mod project?

Hi All,

Just wondering about a few things. I have noticed people modding there Amiga 1200's on the Facebook group Commodore Amiga, spraying colors and adding hardware like LED etc. I have an old A1200 that's a bit worse for ware I feel that could do with a bit of sprucing up, plus a fun project for me to learn a little about electronics and soldering. I feel that I'd need a bit of help with this however.

Things I want to do:

Spray case red possibly.
Add on-board speakers? USB? or not?
Cut holes in case to fit speakers.
LED Lights under or near keyboard so it shows up in the dark.
Add a little screen with a hinge attached possibly so I can keep the original casing?
Anything to replace the floppy drive? Perhaps SD card reader or something.

Things that already need fixing:

Mouse/Joystick port - Replace mouse with USB?
Sound AUX ports

Any feedback / tutorials would be greatly appreciated

Many Thanks

Search the hardware section and subforums, there are loads of guides/build logs. For the paint job, search for Black A1200. If your case has yellowed, you might want to check the Retr0bright thread: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=37808
