    Keeping with the theme of the infamous "worst hacks you ever saw" post, lets use this to post pics of the best repairs you've done.
    Everything from repairing hacked up wiring harnesses to board repairs to repainting playfields.

    Post a before and after picture and let us know how long it took you and what was done if it isn't obvious.

    Use this as a place to show off your proudest repair moments!

    This is the trigger/ball launch for a ST:TNG. Trigger was not registering and returning hits. Could not find the correct replacement parts in stock but found this one out of a G2 inkgel pin, cut it in half with snippers, and it works just fine. I may or may not replace mine with the "correct" part next time I make an order but it got the game up and playing again. Cleaning the firing mechanism on this thing felt oddly like scraping the carbon off of a M-16.

    Cabinet repairs...Both accomplished by slicing approx 3" off the cabinet bottom and inserting new plywood. Centaur rear cabinet repair.
