    Sega Astro Restore

    Picked this up the other day and thought I'd document it. Will do a proper walk through when it's done, as have made videos of most of the steps - mainly because I'd lose my way otherwise!

    While it's not in terrible nick by any means and the wiring is surprisingly good, there's some adjustments needed on the monitor, the marquee bulb is missing, the speakers are knackered, the control panel is not wired correctly with the sticks also being duff. There's quite a few scrapes to the body along with the side stickers and the doors are in poor condition; one hacked about. It's also pretty filthy inside with some slight yellowing on the front of the control panel.

    Started the tear down this evening, removing the CP, removing and discharging the monitor, as well as removing the chassis from the tube to send off for tuning and any repairs that might need to be done:

    Novus plastic polish might help with cabinet scrapes that stuff is fantastic at removing scuffs number 2 & 3 will bring your machine back to looking scuff free. Looking forward to seeing how nice you make it look.

    Good luck with the clean up. Assuming the ballast is ok, the above tube and starter should be right for you.
