The good:
Thought I had to buy a torx driver, but the tool kit I got years ago for building PCs turned out to have the size I needed to get into the A500.

The bad:
The center rear screw is rusted. The other screws are fine. I'm letting it soak in liquid wrench until tomorrow. If I can't muscle it open, it's time to Dremel a slot for a normal screwdriver.

Got the screw out. Some rust on the RF shield. Motherboard looked fine. System powered up and asked for workbench but the floppy drive was giving read errors. I had been told to expect that by one of the previous users. Point is, I am now satisfied the machine is working well enough to spend money on.

Motherboard revision 6A
Fat Agnus 8372A
Motherboard has space to add four more memory chips.
