Thanks Alex and Mark for you comments. As an electrical engineer I've got a very experienced hand at soldering so I understand the process well and know that this can definitely be done.

However let's stay on the original subject of this topic thread, which is on ASCII controllers. The plugs (red and blue) are key parts and unique identifying aspects of the ASCII controllers, so switching them out is not something that most collectors would probably do. :-X While the thought of painting the plug to match the color is almost acceptable/understandable - for the silver, gold, mauve, and white - I still would personally prefer to have it the original way. And for the 4 clear ASCII controllers, switching them out with a clear blue, clear red, smoke might make sense. No idea what to do about the clear white - as there was never a N64 controller with a plug that matches that color. :eh:
