Well I decided that I didn't like the way my web site looked and it didn't have the focus that I wanted. So I decided to change it, and this is the end result. I hope you like the new layout and hopefully all the information is easier to find. Please bare with me as I fix all broken links and complete the rest of the pages. This has taken a lot of work, and its going to take me a few more days to finish everything up. If you find a broken link, then keep checking back to see if its fixed. I want this site to be the leading site on restorations and some conversions of existing video games. The conversion of video games will be kept to a minimum as I want to keep the focus on restoration. I like dedicated games and want to help save those games that are in danger of being destroyed because of wear and tear and neglect. As a result, I have divided the restoration pages into several sections to make it easier to keep up to date. This should also allow people to find specific information quickly. Section 1 Getting started which covers what you need and what you should know to get started. It also covers what kind of tools and supplies you might need. Section 2 Selection and Identification of Games/Cabinets. Section 3 Techniques for dismantling cabinets Section 4 Cleaning of Cabinets, Parts, Monitors, etc.., repairing damage, and repainting of the cabinet. Section 5 Rewiring the Cabinet and put the guts back in. Section 6 Replacing parts, Reproducing Art work Section 7 The finishing touches Restoration Stories Stories from other Collectors on how they did restoration work on their video game. If you have a story, technique, or other information on restoring a specific game or games in general then feel free to drop me a note and I'll add it. I am always on the look out for good information to add to this site, and contributions are always welcome (Content, not $$$). If you send me something and I like it, I'll add it to my site and give you credit for the information. If you find any broken links, or errors please let me know as well. Thanks, Brien King Arcade Game Collector

Restoration/Preservation has begun on my Kickman.
It's not a full restoration, but more of a preservation of what is there.  I like trying to keep things as original as possible.  With that in mind, I can take a few chances on this one as the damage is already done.  I'm mainly trying to prevent even more damage when I can.  Worse comes to worse, I'll do a full restore on it down the road.

Well, I decided to update RoboJuke with a new Motherboard, Processor and RAM. The old one was a Celeron 700 with 2MB of RAM running Windows XP. I upgraded to a Celeron N3150 (Quad Core 1.35Ghz), with 8GB of RAM running Windows 10.
After upgrading, I found out that the software I was using (Virtual Music Jukebox) wouldn't run on Windows 10. After looking for a replacement, I gave up and wrote my own Jukebox Software called "Simple JukeBox". It is avilable for FREE, you can read more about it here: http://forums.arcaderestoration.com/topics/17-Simple-JukeBox
