Sorry Bruno to hijack this thread but you know that in this country there can be only one:
Mhhh, you force me to use my secret weapons : realtime + fast forward mode = ON
Ready for the operation?
All these water damages because of the missing legs, most probably! Let's fix that once for all!
Bondo for strong reparation!
Remember the 'strap accident' on this edge? Well, the broken part 'fits' not too bad actually, so I'm gonna fix it back with strong wood glue
10 print "BONDO"
20 print "SANDPAPER"
30 goto 10
Ready for the paint...
Not too bad...
Really close to the original, just not so shiny, but I'm already very happy after only one layer

Sure, the cosmetic work is not finished yet, still some touch up on the side, but definitively done with bondo!

Ok, let's prepare my usual RGB+Sync+Ground to SCART connector..fix it to this PCB...and power on all that stuff made in USA!
Nothing on the screen... no sound ... nothing! Let's remove that additional board with damaged components on it
Played a couple of games... panel working fine, sounds, gfx, credits.. everything working fine!
Here's the situation from this last week end
Ok ChrisChris, now who is the master here?
Still have to order the set of side art, but I don't need the control panel over... its condition is good enough for me!
Where do you plan to order the stuff by the way?
Oh...and let me finish today by this....WOUAADDDAAA!!!
