Quoted from cp1610:
looks good all cleaned up
I look at this way gdonovan now you have a working game you get to play. You can always get a backglass later.
I'm more annoyed it didn't come out better, if I touch something I really shoot for 100%
Like when you have a new car and it gets a scratch, you notice it but no one else does.
Just spurs me to refining my technique on backglass repairs.
Game plays awesome, wife unit happy. Tough but rewarding. One of the very few EM that was still on our want list. Maybe a Fireball or Sheba if I come across one.
EDIT: added repair pics.
The cabinet back was missing a piece and the bottom was also damaged. The bottom was easy to cut and replace (along with a bunch of braces I had to cut and glue into position, all were missing but two) the back piece was roughly 22 x 4 and more tricky as it was not square. I had to find a piece of lumber that was roughly .835 thick and then make 2 cuts for the side joints and then a third cut to receive the bottom panel. Not as easy as it sounds when one edge is taller than the other. Clamped together while the glue dried which wasn't even necessary as there is 3 six inch long deck screws countersunk in holding the new piece in place. I didn't get too crazy on the paint match here.20190706_172110_resized (resized).jpg20190715_093041_resized (resized).jpg20190715_093059 (resized).jpg20190715_092954_resized (resized).jpg20190715_093019_resized (resized).jpg
