Recommended Posts

As most people know i was looking for a fathom and i purchased this shatter a few year ago out of desperation .

I had buyers remorse for awhile thinking omg wtf am i going to do with this.

Looks very similar to how my Medusa started off. It’s worth the effort. Keep going.  Just remember it will be a beautiful machine when you finish it. 
 

By the way, and really not meaning to hijack the thread so PM me rather than ruining @Pinoffski’s thread but if anyone knows of a crappy fathom in a similar state to this bad boy that I could get my hands on, I’d love for that to be my next project and end up sat next to my Medusa and centaur.

If there ever was a title worth saving from being scrapped then Fathom is it IMO.  My fave game.

Good onya Dave and I'll be watching with interest. At least you've now got one missing part. 😉

Great thread Davo.  Keep posting pics mate.  I never get sick of seeing good pins bought back to life.

Also, look at @spacies  Tron cab restore in the arcade section.   Some awesome work done there repairing a badly damaged cab when it could be saved.

Might give you some ides elsewhere in your restore.

Nice work so far @Pinoffski . Are you re-spraying completely? Side art doesn’t look too bad.

Yes full respray 

It had  repainted on one side and touched up on the opposite side

Just need to find a good match of the color .

 

Cab had some separation of the plywood
