$12 buys a lot of parts

In my last post, I mentioned a vid that I got for $12:

Today I hooked its 25" monitor up to the working A51-Site4 next to it. At first, this is what I saw:

But after a few adjustments, I've got it looking pretty good:

There's smearing along the top third, but the tube (built in 1990) is looking pretty nice. Colors are correct and contrast is good. I'll order a capacitor kit for this, and then I'll be able to replace the 19" monitor with this 25" monitor. A 19" monitor just doesn't look right in a huge cabinet, no matter how nice the bezel is.
