Well simply:

1. there are LOTS of dead A3000 out there due to batteryleakage. they need a pcb replacement to run nicly again. you can fix it with juperwires etc. but there is still shit from the battery slooowly eating more copper..

2. by doing this. we will also have data similiar to the AmigaPCB site, so you can follow up traces helping repairs being done

3. well why not. I need a new pcb. so I do it. if someone else have use for it.. doubleYAY!

My 3000 has battery damage also... Could use a MB swap. Wonder if the ReAmiga 3000 will have INT2 mod on the CPU slot...

Here is a real sneakpeak of my A3000 project.
Here you can see components etc. Do check if you can find issues. (if you are brave enough to follow traces THEN I am impressed )

Amazing!

@Chucky

I have a damaged A3000T motherboard that I might be willing to let you have in trade if you are interested.
