Centipede Video Game by Atarii 1980

This Centipede made by Atari, in the small "Cabaret" style cabinet, was designed for small space locations like convenience stores.  This one needed the Electrohome "GO7" monitor rebuilt with all new capacitors.  Also the trackball was rusted stuck.  The cabinet was a mess with the 4 leg levelers pushed up into the floor because the wood had rotted from water exposure.  We cut some 1 x 4" boards and mounted the T-nuts for new leg levelers into the boards.  The boards are nailed and glued to give the game it's stability.  The front and back were painted.  Note the "Sega" control panel overlay.  We wish we could find any original... but it's not likely.  The rebuilt trackball is smooth and fast acting making this game fun to play again!  The invoice notes follow:
