What does the OSSC do then...

a) scale 512 to 480 vertical pixels?
b) somehow make the monitor display a 512 pixel signal?
c) just output 480 pixels, and 32 lines are lost?

My personal preference would be a solution that includes more VRAM, so
it is not interpolated, but an actually usable resolution.

Besides lack of time and the BGA soldering issue, I remain unsure if
such a massive board modification is appropriate for a historic computer.

A lot depends on the question, what do we actually prefer today: Keeping
the historic machine alive, or any 68060 machine that has decent video
and runs SMSQ/E?

Using a hot air gun like in that video looks even more difficult than
the IR lamp I'm experimenting with.

All the best
