Does anyone have any photos of the cartidge door assembley of an Atari 800 please?

Having just recovered my collection and seen stuff for the first time in 5 years, I found that during that time my 800 has suffered some damage and that section of the unit is now a few loose parts. Accordingly any photos anyone has or could take would be very help.

Also details of any of the parts that form said assembley. I know some of the fine plastic fins are broken on mine :(

Thanks in advance.

Thank you. Those pictures are just what I needed.

Has your 800 maintained that colour from new or have you had to retrobright it at some time?

That's how I got it. It did come in its original box so I assume it never saw too much use.

I guess you are very lucky - mine's quite yellowed so a Retrobright bath is due!

Mind you, off all my stuff the Apple 3 is by far the most yellowed! - far more than the Apple II, IIe or II Platinum.

Well thanks again for the pictures :)
