    Mini upright cab is reassembled, front sanded and covered with vinyl, all control wiring done, coin mechs are in place but aren’t wired up. Have to send the monitor chassis off to be refurbished.
Custom marquee and control overlay needs to be designed and printed (different size from standard of course). Need to repaint the monitor surround.
Also got my clean skin Taito cocktail out, cleaned it up, sanded and resprayed the top. Next is mount the monitor, build the control panels and of course wiring :) #retrocollector #arcaderepair #arcaderestoration #taito

    Game operators in the past would paint a game black and convert it to something else when it stopped making money. Whoever painted this one loved the artwork so much he only painted over the game’s title. Thanks to some magic erasers and 91% alcohol I’m reversing that now. #arcaderestoration #timepilot #vintagegame #arcade #timetravel

    Opened up the control panel for another Defender cabinet because I was getting weird input issues, only to find this somewhat horrifying hackjob. Rapid fire switches obviously cut from another PCB, wires spliced in series with each other and no insulation, got shorts, and the original leaf spring switches are still there and hooked up! Why???? I know some defender players liked to switch out for the more reliable rapid fires, especially if you're going for some marathon sessions, as the leaf springs are prone to oxidation and missed inputs. But this work could have been done better!!! #defender #arcade #arcaderestoration #gaming #retrogaming #butwhytho #cabinet #retro

    Excited to get back my Bazooka parts from the powder coated today.  They were able to paint the PVC parts as well, all in a 'military green' that they've used on previous military contracts.  Fairly close match to the original, but a bit darker.
