Scared Stiff - Fix up restore

This was given to me to fix up someone else's "attempt" to either restore or to do a quick flip.

Atari Star Wars Cockpit Restoration

It's been 8 years since I bought my last project cabinet, and 4 years since I finished restoring it. Over the 4 year gap I hadn't really considered doing any others, I thought I had thoroughly scratched that itch.
