This case was so bad, it couldn’t be touched up. A full refinish was required
Rev-0 fresh out of the UPS delivery packaging. I was actually impressed the machine wasn’t damaged. The box was barely big enough for the machine and everything was shoved and stacked inside. The joystick was still plugged in.
First look inside the Rev-0 before powering up. Only a few chips needed replacing to make it all date correct and perfect.
The Datanetics keyboard needed a lot of restoration from sitting around. Good thing I have kids who I can ask to press each key 100 times
The front was nearly perfect, but the back had rework and damage from a screw in the case.
Since Apple-1 are so similar and have no serial number, if the memory block wiring isn’t distinct, I might flip a single chip upside for pics to I can tell which board it is.
If those big blue caps go boom, it’s a very expensive failure. I always test the ESR and try to reform the caps.
