Cleaning an Atari 2600 VCS

Introduction: Cleaning an Atari 2600 VCS

The main problem I have run across in collecting classic video game systems is that the really old ones that have sat in boxes and garages for the last 20 or so years have built up a collection of their own, only it consists of dust and dead things. Here I'll show you how to disassemble, clean, and reassemble your Atari 2600 VCS.

If you all like this, I will post a step-by-step with more pictures and detail.

This is my first 'able, comments and constructive criticism only please. :)
