Terminator 2 Restoration/Conversion

Before and After my Terminator 2 restoration

Restoring old games is not only fun but educational. If you have an older game or a new video game, you may have already wondered what you will do if it stops working. Maybe you picked up a game at an auction or online and hope to restore it but do not know where to begin.

I have restored countless games and am now offering a how-to video series that explains exactly how you can do it too. The videos will eventually include everything from MAME conversions, to Classic Restorations, Electromechanical restorations, and even conversion of non-working games to new and different games.

Check the Video/DVD link to find our how-to videos and information on restoring games. Check out the Cabinets link to see some of our past projects.

Our latest video is the Terminator 2 Multi-Console Conversion project. We take a gutted Terminator 2 arcade game and convert it into an X-Box/PS2 based system with light guns and a full control panel. It was one of the easiest projects we have undertaken and it has also turned out to be one of the most fun games to play.
