I recently got a Popeye which I am restoring to its former glory.

Most of the GI lighting wasn't working, look what I found under the plug at J121.....

Good news though, it hadn't blown any of the fuses, and once I had re-connected everything it fired up beautifully.. all is well that ends well in the face of utter incompetence....

Wow. I'm always amazed to see repairs like this. Like how badly do you need that machine back on the floor that you can't wait a week for a part?

This belongs in the "worst hack job" thread! Shocking!

If you're an op whose income depends on it: badly.

At least those wires were not soldered directly to the header pins.
