Atari 5200 Controller Mod

Atari 5200 Controllers

The one on the left is the original atari 5200 controler and the one on the right is a modded one so I could play Kaboom! and Pole position. Don't know if any of you ever played Kaboom with a joystick but it SUCKS! One of my all time favorite games so this mod was a must! Took apart a 2600 paddle and used the handle and pot out of it. Baught the switch you see on the top so I could shift gears in pole position. It works awesome. There is a site out there somewhere that explanes how to hook the wires up.
