True restoration is an art form. Like any good artist you have to know what your doing. Painting a single line on a canvas and calling it a masterpiece does not fly in restoring a arcade machine. Do it right

This is actually a really good idea. It should be stickied and referred to.

I think a little more detail, because as I recall the Commando turned out to be a power supply issue so that would be a big help for dead games.

It was late last night and I didn't have time to go over everything in the videos so I looked at the titles XD
