  • Black Hole progress

    Here is the playfield before the stripdown.

    Mylar, Black paint around the bumpers, shitload of glue (yellow pain in the arse stuff)

    Its been touched up before as its coming away easily as acrylic paint does with the ethanol.

    During the rub down with mylar removed with a heatgun.

    You can see the glue that I have to deal with around the roll over areas, after the black paint removed around the bumpers the wood is revealed.

    White smears are the remains of the rubbing alcohol for some that aren't aware.

            All the low wear spots have been filled with Septone auto car filler (repair putty)

            Sanded back with 800/1200 grit wet/dry

            Ready for some touchups now.

                Pop bumper area touched up and also here and there, first time I have mixed up tones of blue and its harder than other colours I've done. But anyway not looking too bad.

                Had to redo spacemans hand too, it'll do heh.

                    Looks pretty good to me too
                    Would be hard to match the Blues ,it looks like they've used quite a few different shades of it.

                      Ok here are some before and after pics.










                      Don't have before shots of these two.




                      Do you think I should cover with mylar or just a few coats of wax, what are your suggestions??

                      Wax?
                      Mylar?

                        top work, I couldn't spot the touch ups until I looked back to see what was damaged in the first place. how long has it taken so far ? and what type of paints did you use? if you have used 'hard' paints like automotives or hobby enamels then wax will be enough, acrylics then I reckon clear or mylar...

                          The power supply has been updated with recommended changes/fixes as per the pinrepairs site.

                          R10 with 680ohm resistor
                          R3 with 12k
                          CR6 with 18v zener
                          CR7 with 8.3v zener
                          POT1 with new 500ohm trim pot
                          IC1 socketed and LM723CN

                          I replaced the red LED's with a yellow LED for the +5v and green LED for +12v just so someone knows it has been worked on.

                          Also new elec. caps. all round to just make sure all voltages/signals are smooth.



                          There is a rottendog PS in the backbox but I wanted to fix the original up.

                          The paints are acrylic's so mylar it is then, don't want to clear with this one.

                          Its taken a few hours here and there.

                            Here are some shots of the back glass and innards sorry for the blurry pcbs shot.





                            Got some work to do on the score windows, apart from that the glass is not too shabby.
