Description: This is an old A2000 that had broken PSU. I've replaced it with ATX. I also replaced floppy drive with PC one. Not seen here are: 5,25" FDD and 50Mb HDD both covered in rust. Amazingly HDD works just fine.
here is the high res version

the red thing is kickstart switch.
I have used some rust remover (acid probably)
and then zinc spray. it doesn't look very good, but at least it should prevent further rusting

What is that red thing right of the mouse conector?

 And a tip: remove the cradle and take it to a trip to some sand-jet industry. Then go to a chrome or galvanoplastic one to re-cover it (or just paint it).

higher resolution

I haven't butchered old connector, instead I used two seperate, cheap connectors that you could buy in every radio shack. Unfortunately two wires could not fit in them, so I just used that heatshrink tube to isolate them, but it looks OK to me. I'll post a photo about it, soon. Still, I wish I could repair that old PSU, though new one is probably safer and better quality.

Of course, I bought it second hand with rust and all.. IIRC, it was 10 euros.
OTOH, that new Chieftec 300W PSU cost me about 40 euro..

here is closer look on connector.

How are you connecting the PSU to the motherboard? You've done a very neat job, not a terminal block in sight!

Wow, did you keep this in a garage in New Orleans or something?  :-o
