    I had trouble seeing them in the pic. Looks great. How were the instruction plates difficult?

    #315 2 years ago

    Had to be completely sanded off and the numbers, letters and lines are super thin so it was hard to paint them.

    Them lines do look pretty thin. But you did a nice job they look great.

    #317 2 years ago

    Thank you for sharing all the great photos (applause!)

    #318 2 years ago

    Very cool restore thread. You've got some mean talent to repaint those plates so perfectly. That's one sweet looking machine!

    #319 2 years ago

    Thanks guys!

    #321 2 years ago

    Dude. Your restores kick serious azz!! I'd love to come to your arcade someday.

    #322 2 years ago

    how did you find a dome for this? Seems like something nobody would have ever, and doesn't seem like something you could have made.

    Scroll back through the post Neo, he mentions that he had one made and the particulars around having it made!

    Specifically the bottom of page 2 and top of page 3!

    #324 2 years ago

    i totally missed that. I didn't there were companies that could even do that.

    #325 2 years ago

    Are you doing this restoration at the same time your restoring the Outrun? Where do you find the time?? Work is simply amazing.

    Yes, and about 8 other games. It's a juggling act for sure. Thanks!

    #329 2 years ago

    Nice and flat! Put them out in the sun sandwiched between glass and wax paper.

    These were warped all over the place from the heat coming off the bulbs underneath. The bulbs will be replaced with LED strips.

    Sounds like a full time job, I assume you are retired?

    #331 2 years ago

    Semi-retired. Own a couple tech ventures.

    #342 1 year ago

    Dome fits perfectly, even a little snugger than original.

    IMG_5235 (resized).JPG

    #343 1 year ago

    Nice ! Cant wait to see this thing all done. You will have to do a video of it working.

    #344 1 year ago

    Nice use of led strips, are you running them at full intensity? Or do you have a control in place? Also how are you powering them?

    #345 1 year ago

    A little further along.

    New locks and keys.

    IMG_5320 (resized).jpg

    #346 1 year ago

    Still need to paint the $25 cent plate.

    IMG_5316 (resized).jpg

    #347 1 year ago

    Flags applied to string.

    IMG_5313 (resized).jpg

    #348 1 year ago

    String attached like the original. Plexiglass squares epoxied to the inside of the dome.

    IMG_5321 (resized).jpg

    #349 1 year ago

    Winning hole flags. These can be placed in different ways to adjust the difficulty.

    IMG_5314 (resized).jpg

    #350 1 year ago

    Oh yeah. New dome perfectly clear.
