There was a chunk missing on the left side right above the control panel. The smoked plexi was thrashed. The sides were bad . It needed new paint on the front . It was time to go to work. I had the plexi remade, repainted the coin door and the front, made a patch for the side,put on new black vinyl on the inner edges, put on new wood grain vinyl and a new NOS cp overlay. The monitor was rebuilt and the insides were cleaned up. Nothing but the best for Dave.
I finished up the game and loaded it on to my truck . Dave lived about 45 minutes from me. I delivered the game and was very pleased at his reaction. It was really an honor to restore a game for its creator and to meet Dave and talk about the golden age of Atari.
A picture is worth a thousand words and seeing this still makes me smile. There is a blem in the pic but I assure you the game was pristine ;)
