This control panel is /GROSS/.

I’ve never had to do this on a CP before, but I’m going to have to fill in the rust pits with Bondo. Most other CPs are completely covered with the CPO so you don’t see any blemishes. Galaxian CPO only covers a small part of the CP.

At least it’s getting done!

In addition I’ll have to come up with some way to mount the joystick properly. Galaxian came with a 2 way joystick. It must have broken sometime in the past, as it was replaced with an eight-way Wico. It was only mounted with two bolts. I’ve got an idea that should work, and I’ll post pictures if it does. Heck, I’ll post pictures if it doesn’t.
