When it comes to Retrofitting a classic Computer one of my first Rules is never tear apart a good working unit.
There are plenty dead units and parts available so if you have a good working Commodore 64, Amiga etc in the loft or garage then keep it. These classic units will go up in value and of course have played a significant role in the technology we have today. I much Prefer to buy components seperately like the Case, Keyboard etc so in reality I'm bringing something new to life rather than reverse engineering a good unit to start with.
