Eh, looking at the pictures the battery damage is very little. It is a 
decent candidate for saving. Action needs to be taken quickly but it's in 
way better condition than ones I've attempted to work on.

I do see some flaking north in the copper traces of the battery.

I still wonder if osmeone will reproduce Amiga 3000 motherboards where you 
can either move over the customs but also has some modern add ons.

As well as a replacement board for the Amiga 600 :-)

At $800 though... not AGA.
