Since last time, I have pulled it all apart, wiring everything. Cleaned all the parts, some being chromed etc etc but you already new that ;)

Just need help with the control panel decal :( anyone :unsure I have the vector art but it needs to be printed and also edited from the 2nd player CP.

What did you do to get those legs and base looking good? Were they easy to come off and on?

I have a Taito and LAI cocktail I would like to tidy up. I bought the internals from Gamedude and now I am just looking in to wiring it all up. :D

All that chromed for $80? I've been quoted more for less!
Must live in the wrong state...

It was first quoted for $20 bucks, then I added the large pinball plate you will see in the pic. Then it went to $30 odd and the went to $80 cos I requested to have the button boltes high polished which takes around 1 to 2 mins alone. that was probably 40 mins worth of buffing.

I am going to take some old pinball legs and see if they will re chrome a whole bunch for $50 odd? can't hurt to ask ROFL ;)

LOL probably :lol

It as immaculate as I could make it I can assure you. At times I have given up on things..... cant find this, can't find that, wrong size, shops dont sell that size, shop doesn't know what the **** I am talking about, customize this that etc etc.

It doesn't look like much work, and it probably isn't if everthing is available to you (dam no dolorean to go back to Japan and buy bolts or this and that), but it was a lot of work. :cry

Here it is finished...

Very nice mate! About time you used that 48 in 1 ;)

Was the laminate on the sides replaced at all, or was it perfect already? I need to repair mine, and looking for ideas on what to do.

I got them and then spacies helped me convert the files then I printed them. I have more prints which I planned to chuck on ebay to get back some costs.

I once looked at this very nice machine in person, so that makes it extra special (it was in my presence).

:lol :lol :lol

Ryan, has your boss offered you a promotion if you'll let him have it?
