1. Is there a good "sticker" replacement for the ColecoVision stock one.. all the ones I've seen/have are worn.
(was wondering if this was one of the things the guys making cards, labels or boxes could consider)

2. I have a controller some "cut" the metal contact off on the left and up of a controller...is there a replacement that can be bought/made to solder on?
Yurkie's refurb only deals with cracked!!

By "sticker" I am guessing you mean the polished and coated Aluminum disc. Could gently pry one off a controller that was broken. Ecoleco used to sell a set of silver stickers that where quite frankly pretty lame.

I replace the cracked ones, thats all one can do.

If you want to fix controllers, you basically need parts controllers.

Yup, I've got your awesome modification ones but want to make a beautiful "original" look set.

Well I do have one for parts... the entire board was shattered.. just a crack on the back of the controller.. not sure how it was done but wow.. I took the keypad from it already.. replaced one that wasn't showing right numbers with the test program on the Atarimax and its working fine . Almost fixed one, have everything working but the right firing button works with the test program.

Still want some practice soldering/desoldering on garbage before I attempt repairs.

We'll soon have Frontplate sticker replacement for the CV console ;)
