What is better than a state-of-the-art 303 clone? A customised state-of-the-art 303 clone. Here it is: one reason to deconstruct the TT-303 R2 was to take off the cover to repaint it with the water transfer print (WTP) process. Without destroying her I had to take off one screw after another carefully – losing the manufactor’s warranty…
But it worked out! After deconstructing both SMDs I had to strip the varnish…
This took about 4 hours, no machines used. After all the lacquer was gone, the plastic had to be coated with primer:
Before the WTP foil can be applied, the surface has to be coated with a base color, in this case I chose kinda ACID YELLOW to be the background color:
This already looks nice I think, but I wanted to have a wired, non repeating pattern layout for the WTP foil to be coated, so I decided to apply this foil:
The knobs had also to be repainted:
After assembling all together:
I think the new design looks pretty cool 🙂 What do you think?
