The Raw Material





I managed to pick up an old gutted Q*Bert machine from a guy in Joplin, MO. He just wanted to get rid of it, and I was very excited over my good fortune. Visions of Q*Bert were dancing in my head. I was totally excited and ready to get to work on the cabinet. My original plan was a restoration, as the guy said it had some “minor” water damage. My brother drove through Joplin weekly, and picked it up for me. My dreams of restoration quickly faded when I saw the unloaded cabinet. Check out all that water damage! I guess that is why the cab was free. At this point, I had no real clue how to proceed, but lots of good ideas.
