I'm surprised it even has the T-Nuts cutouts as my original CAD drawing has them tagged for later drilling and installation by the vendor. And in fact, the samples I am using for CAD have had them installed later for sure as they aren't in the same spot on the all the PFs, close but not CNC close, more like jig and hand routing close.
I'll make an offer to anyone that needs it, I'll drill and dimple the front of this PF BUT and this is a BIG one, you pay shipping both ways and if it goes sideways in any way we're not responsible for it. It will be drilled and dimpled with the same pattern as our reproductions. If this PF is different in any way it will show up. That's why I NEVER use an NOS for CAD work. They are missing a bunch of holes, all the dimples and there just might have been a reason it was never used back in the day...... could be anything, (missing holes, bad alignment, wrong colored inserts etc) or there could be nothing wrong at all. It's just too risky for me to use for CAD work. I want a used one that came out of an actual game. Contact me privately for further info if needed.
As for colors we have the original films so the Pantone colors are specified, however, both of the original companies "should" have had the same information and yet they still wound up with different colors. Guess its not that easy
We'll order the Pantone colors from the color specialists as specified on the films and test them out to make sure they are right. If they match either PF then we'll know its right and use it. If it doesn't match either we might try to bend the color to match one of the original PF's we have. But I have to say I am engaging in a little bit of speculation based on a lots of "Ifs". They will be as good as we can make them though, that's for sure.
