    Got all the parts back from the powdercoaters, makes such a difference.

    The seat section just got sandblasted as it has a large bearing in the center I couldn't remove, I'll need to spray paint it.

    Then to figure out how the whole thing goes back together...uh oh

        I was surprised that there is no motor, purely mechanical movement with the joystick. 2 pots provide feedback to the PCB

        So many rusted bolts that stripped, it was a pain!
        So is that true then that no Thunder Blade cabinet has a shaker motor? I've connected my PCB to the After Burner cab and no shaker action whatsoever! I suspected fault with the PCB, but maybe there was no shaker to start with...

        Correction, there was a shaker motor - it definitely was on the upright cabinet. Maybe only the DX version did not have one...

          Yeah I thought only the upright had a shaker. Seems SEGA did that with Afterburner and Outrun uprights too
