I was lucky enough to secure an empty Space Invaders from the back of A&C Games in Toronto, it wasn't actually for sale, but I managed to convince the owner to pass it on. The catch is, every original part has been removed, and someone's replaced it with a computer that apparently is running a Hyperspin-type system (I haven't tested it as it's supposedly beyond repair). So, I have this huge restoration project ahead, as you can see by these photos below. (Also, I just realised I'm terrible at introducing topics)

Front view; about the CP, it's not missing, I removed it.

Because, what's a 40 year old bezel without flaking.

Speaks for itself, really.

Probably the least damaged side.

The side that appears to have been through some kind of torture

Note to self: Never try to fix a coin slot again.
So, what do you think?
