Great job with the Tron machine!!! I reciently picked up one that works great, all the lights are working, but cosmetically, it’s pretty beat up. The only other thing that concerns me is the right side of the screen’s color seems slightly faded. Do you know if that’s fixable without having to get a new monitor? Hope all is well.

Usually the first thing you should do to an old arcade monitor would be to install a cap kit. Not really sure if it would impact the symptoms you have, but it is not very expensive or difficult to do if done correctly. Check my links page for a site with full instructions on doing cap kits.

My basement flooded with about 3 inches of standing water. I had my Tron on 2×4’s which didn’t help too much. Water wicked up the sides 12 inches. I’m debating whether or not to replace the sides with black melamine or with painted particle wood. Any advice?

That really stinks! Sorry to hear about that Marty! If you’re going to go through the process of rebuilding the cabinet then the melamine would be much easier. It would look pretty sweet too. You might want to consider just cutting off the problem areas and replacing with new plywood. That way your artwork stays intact. Would be pretty easy to do with a biscuit joiner.
