    This repair is awesome guys. I know you completed it quite a while a go now but I’m about to undertake a similar repair on an Apple Mac and you give me the confidence that I might be able to get it working, and the tips that I need to be successful. Thanks for sharing your projects. Very inspiring.

    Hi there Guys,
    Are you in / are you still in the motherboard repair business?. I have an Amiga A500+, that has battery damage. it is not as bad looking as the one here in you photo log. I think it has buggered the sound section of the board tho. Is it possible to repair and if so, how much might it cost (Ball Park), and where are you guys located?.
