I decided to put the board into a separate project, since it could be used in other let's put a RasPi into a dead C64 case as well.
so here it is: https://hackaday.io/project/164852/gallery#5f86694c56828d3a6d7506c779ae010a
and I ordered the first batch, trying jlcpcb once, because 17 bucks for 5 PCB, which should be here in around a week.

So... the first attempt didn't worked out well. After some days of showing it off, the Raspi fell off.
Thats when I decided to make an own PCB, featuring:
- Four port USB Hub, to be used with other than RasPi A
- Some 5V, 3V3 and GND headers, to connect stuff
- RJ45 connectors for a nice look
- a bunch of break off pcbs to cover some holes. Cause the adapter will be L shaped so i have to pay that dead space anyway

So finally all the parts are here. Yay.
First I gave that C64 case and those keycaps a little wash, they were a bit dirty
After that I put together all the parts and fired up the raspi. See if all works as intended. It did, yay.
Since it is a cyberdeck I wanted to have some possibility to wear it like a messenger bag, because thats how cyberdecks work, right? And the screen needs to be mounted to it as well. So I drilled some holes.
That plastic they made this case out of is actually super easy to drill.
Next was bit of reworking on the Casette port, thats where you use to plug in the datasette back then.
And then, bring out that spraycan, after tree times spraying the whole thing, it was done. It's still not a perfectly even paintjob, but were still talking about cyberpunk stuff here so i think it's prerfect.
After the color dryed i just put all together. Only to find out that the ringscrews, with the fitting nut just perfectly work as a support for the keyboard. Design by accident is always great.
Putting it together, installing arch linux, installing cmatrix.

After a long pause I found a C64 housing with keyboard on some auction platform for a reasonable price (23 swissfrancs) including shipping.

So I got the keyboard, I got an Arduino Pro Micro clone and I even found a module which should be able to do C16, C64 to USB. Didn't worked on the first try.
But then... By reading into the whole HID thing I stumbled over HID as an attack vector, and then over the whole USB attack topic. Yes I have a Hak5 Bash Bunny now, as well as a RasPi Zero W running the latest P4wnP1. And found a frigging hilarious USB hub, with two device ports, to weaponize.
