    Default Computer Space restoration for CGE 2012

    So thanks to Pete who lives out in Las Vegas, he picked up the machine from the CGE storage facility and carefully packed it and shipped it to me for restoration. This came out of a discussion at E3 last year and they wanted it ready for the Museum, so it is now at my place.

    The game arrives!

    From 15 or more feet away it looks like a solid cab, but get up close and it gets ugly.

    It ain't that bad, and it has to be done. That said it will be a pain in the ass.
