Can you provide details on the blue tubing used?
What ID and OD?

I'm looking at tubing via google and this came up:

I'm going to need to build completely new Chase Light assembly as my game did not come with one. (I assume an OP removed it when it stopped working).

Quoted from Homepin:

If you want to save yourself some bother a replacement board is available here:

Thanks. I think my machine has a board and I'm skilled with a soldering iron.

I may be converting to LEDs in the rope; but want it to look close to the stock version - hence the reason I'm looking for the tubing information.

Haven't heard from patofnaud so I figured I'd begin documenting my progress on my blog at:

I'll post more here when I get data back from the PCBs.

Quoted from Swainer80:

PS Just read your blog, why not use 12v leds and just make it plug and play? Also spacing of the originals is about 1.5 inches.

Because 12V LEDs don't exist.
They are all just normal LEDs with series resistors.
And I'm difficult.

If my plan holds; it won't matter anyway - because mine will look very different from the stock rope anyway.
