The Atari 2600, originally known as the Atari VCS is an iconic video games console and always deserved to be restored when one comes to RMC. Today we have a bucket of Atari VCS which needs to be cleaned, restored, tested and repaired. We learn how to clean metal switches, how to restore black plastics and how to restore paint from the bezel which is so often missing. We also throw in some mods and take it for a test drive.
