Umm... so... yeah... me being basically crap at fixing things... three questions spring to mind:
1) Anyone have any idea what would be a safe, proper psu for this?
2) Anyone want to take a shot at fixing the "power wiring" or whatever that is?
3) should I just throw it away?
all the pictures about it seem to be gone, I´ll take some pics when I get it
Here´s couple relevant quotes about it for a while ago:
googling for videotopia turbogun brings up jack **** and the arcadeotaku thread where its given away

Sorry I'm not including the PSU, it's completely unsuitable and it got quite hot which is worrying when I tested it (obviously I didn't attach a PCB when I tested it) so please be aware of that.

Don't use that PSU with it, and beef up those extra wires to something substantial. As it is right now it's a fire hazard.
