Refurbish the shell and put the guts of a modern toaster inside. (I just like seeing new stuff in old cases, like the people who drop LS9s into C3 'vettes.)
Is that whole upper case actually chromed? If it is, some Coca-Cola and crumpled aluminum foil should get rid of the surface rust. It shouldn't leave scratches all over the piece because the nickel coating is stronger than the aluminum, but keep a bucket of water nearby to periodically dunk your foil into to keep the rust buildup in check. If you're never going to use it to prepare food again, hit the inside and outside with some chrome polish to help seal up the pinholes the rust came from.
Well, I don't have any new toasters to spare, and the old toaster has a weird toast orientation. I've recently re-assembled the internal frame so I have something to mount stuff on. I might look around at yard sales and on Craigslist.
What about using fine steel wool? Can I use diet coke or PC cola?
Anyway, this toaster isn't able to prepare food anymore, and probably never will; I used pliers and brute force to remove the heating elements. I don't think the inside of the casing is chromed; just the entire outside. Can I use Brasso or silver polish on the inside in that case?
Also, I just cut down my NES board and replaced the RF modulator with something smaller. Now it fits nicely when installed horizontally.
What do you think about hardwiring a Game Genie to the cartridge slot on the NES board? That way, I can use a Game Genie and I won't have to deal with the NES's original pin connector. I'll have to make the cables from the Game Genie to the NES board long enough so that it can twist so that I can line it up with the toast slot on the Toaster.
I should take more pictures...
I'm thinking of adding in a digital radio or something. D'ya think it'd cause 'ny interference?
What about a guide for the cartridges? I considered cutting down opaque plastic plates, storage bins, or something. Maybe I could use the shell of my NES's original casing, but I was going to use that for something else.
