Hi all,

I am posting this on several forums!


Someone really generous [Alpha1] gave me an Atari Tank project machine


I am aiming to restore it, no idea on time frame [might be long term] but here are a few shots below



Update now is I have already been offered a marquee which I am massively grateful for.

So I now need:


Marquee retainers [although could make some]
marquee surround and instructions
advice on the right substitute 24" CRT

Any advice or comments is gratefully received

Keep an eye out for updates!

hi yes please!

what I need now is the monitor surround and instructions, or at least a scan would be amazing if there is any possibilty, thanks

also I noticed my contorl panel has some damage but getting another one is unlikley but it still works fine and has been patched up ok.

Cheers

1. no suprise at the screen burn with this game


2. cleared the old rubber matting as it was shot, so will then fill the dinks and glue some new matting on




3. cleaned up the CP notice the historic repair



4. more than 36000 plays

5. remove pcbs



6. the components on the other side are clearly suspect



7. notice the left board, there are 2 black components [just below the top left hand corner massive capacitor, are they resistors or diodes?!] that are causing the scorching:




8. original marquee secured as below, but I need the bezel surround with instructions
