    So it looks like this Meteor will live again. I have been plugging away on various parts over the last 5 months, but was mainly avoiding working on the terribly rotted cab. It looked a lot better when it was covered in crap and in a dark shed. The playfield has been stripped, mylar removed with minimal damage, and its off to be cleared. It had no wear but does looked like it had been sitting for 30 years in a shed, so won’t be mint but will play nicely.

    I have made a new backbox and got the cab solid before bogging it up. Needs a few final touches and they will be ready for paint. I have some newer style leg plates on order to test fit before restenciling. Also while fixing up the cab I got the legs and coin door sandblasted then painted them with silver hammertone ,stoked how they turned out.


































    Will be needing all new displays, going with the seven digits ones, new MPU and rectifier. Already have new side rails thanks to @Railways. Planning to get the cab all done then start on the playfield.

    Amazing what you have achieved already. That cabinet area near the left flipper button that was totally gone, how did you fix that up with bog?

    Firstly I removed most of the rotted timber then kept soaking all the problem areas with Earls wood hardner for about 3 weeks. I kept trimming and found a couple other areas that I gouged out. By this stage the timber left was solid but there was no support on that corner. Started to to think just cutting off the front and making another one from scratch would be the easier option. If I could get the cab solid with no play in it, it should be alright. So I screwed the corner together with a lot of screws, added a bigger corner trim inside, another at the bottom of the coin door and the oak trim around the base. Then before bogging up I used long screws into the timber so there is support/key in for the bog, especially around the flipper button area. I don't have a pic of it but there few interlocking screws around the flipper button.
    The end result is great and solid as, but if there is a next time I'll probably just make the cab from scratch.
