      LAI Lowboy Clean Up

      Had these cabs for a while now, they were both working when I picked them up but they were in need of a rewire and clean up.


      1.jpg 2.jpg 3.jpg 20160928_204945.jpg 5.jpg 6.jpg 9.jpg 8.jpg 10.jpg 11.jpg 12.jpg 13.jpg 14.jpg 15.jpg

      With the blue cab I was hoping to strip the paint and bring back the woodgrain. Paint came off easily with just a steel scraper but unfortunately the veener was ruined as it had been prepped for the last paint job wit an orbital sander WTF! So a few coats of black, a new control panel, thanks @redferatu and and overlay from @MamePatrol. It has Tekken 3 PCB and and a multi that I use mainly for Wonderboy and Ghost and Goblins.

      The woodgrain cab was just a clean and rewire with new CP and CPO as well. Its got Gyruss and Time Pilot PCBs in it and I did put in a Monoroe joystick initially but that didn't last long. I had never used a Monroe before and just couldn't get used to it, so in went a trusty MCA.

      I don't remember doing this by the way. I bought one of the panels though.

      Great work on bringing those old lowboys back to life! Good to see others who also like to have their cabs in nice cosmetic condition. Well done!

      What do you do to set up two pcbs in one machine to control them?

      I did look at some Jamma switchers but the $$ weren’t worth it IMO. The boards stay in the cab and I just manually switch the connector, it helps that the lowboys internals are easy to access.

      Looks great, I'm still hunting for a couple of LAI cabs. I remember playing a woodgrain one at the fish and chip shop......

      I really like lowboy cabinet's. They are so easy to move, access internal's, clean up etc etc etc.
      Well done on giving these the love they deserve
