Rear I/O panel for "Mystic" CC?

Recommended Posts

I've got a Color Classic that I "Mystic"-ized a long time ago. At the time (~2010, I think?) the current wisdom on handling the rear I/O panel was to get an LC575 panel and basically merge it with the original CC panel. I have both. The problem was that life got in the way and I never finished that. Now, I still have the parts, but not the time and not the patience or skill to make it look good. 

 

So, is there anyone out there that has successfully done this (combined the two I/O panels into one that fits as the original does)? If so, would you be willing to do it again, and if so, what would this cost?

 

Alternately, I saw something pop up about someone 3D printing Mystic I/O panels, but now I can't seem to find it. While I'd prefer it look as original as possible, the convenience of just popping on a piece that's specifically designed to do the job has its appeal.

A guy in Australia sells them on eBay.  I have one.  They are gorgeous.  Pricey though, as I recall $20 + shipping from Australia.

Yeah, I found that right after posting my message. Not quite worth $45 to me, esp. if I've got the 575 panel that I can shave down to the right size.

Same here.  Ebay.  I can not remember who made mine, but I liked it.  It fit perfect.  The only issue is the I/O panel was made out of pure white plastic.  But it never shows unless you turn the machine around.  I was always going to paint mine after a retrobright, but the retrobright has yet to be done.  And so it goes......

Not as refined as the Retro ShoopBox one, but this might do the trick: https://www.ebay.com/itm/383136803765

Both of them look like just cut-down versions of the 575 panel with screw holes added. So, I should be able to achieve the same thing with a coping saw, drill press and a steady hand. I've got two out of the three.

By the way, on the off chance anyone wants an original CC IO panel dremeled reasonably neatly to fit a 575 board, I’m happy to send my extra.
