Restoring a Rare Bandai FL Gun Professional Game Console
I don’t know exactly what it is, but I could watch hardware restoration videos all day long. In this one, on Odd Tinkering, they restore a rare FL Gun Professional multiplayer dual console game unit.
The restore mainly involves cleaning the parts, retrobriting the case, creating new battery terminals, and a paint refresh.
I have an old Merlin, the Electronic Wizard console that a friend gave me as a gift a few years ago. This video has inspired me to bite the bullet and attempt a restoration. When I do, I’ll post about it here.
