I am just in awe of everything you post Chris. This level of detail and skill is unsurpassed (at least that I have ever seen). Well done!

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

Connections are made for the solenoid harness
Not too much thought needed on the sling
[quoted image]
Starting here I need to split the yellow and violet strand. I dont want to add a third 18 awg to this connector I made during the coil removal
[quoted image]
Instead I separate them
[quoted image]
Then use a smaller color correct wire to help them share the strand in a smaller footprint for the Molex pin
[quoted image]
This gives a easier to manage set of plugs. [quoted image]
Solenoid Harness is now free
[quoted image]
And cleaned [quoted image]

Fantastic detail on how you do things Chris. It is so impressive to me.

I'd be happy to have the games you START with, let alone complete!

Keep up the great work! I love seeing this stuff.

I don't know how you find time to do all this amazing work, cook these amazing meals, drink this amazing beer, AND post it all to Pinside. I'm exhausted just reading the thread

Chris -

Question for you. Are these posts in real time? I was just wondering that as I was reading through the thread. I mean like when you clear coat, and every day there is progress, is that like stuff that you had done already, or is it as it happens?

Just a curiosity to me.

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

These are real time. Since I am always working on four or five games at a time I am able to keep things moving.
If the playfield is curing for one I can build another,if the cabinet is freshly primed I can sand and paint one I did the day before.

Thanks for the reply. That makes these updates even more impressive (if that were possible).

Looking great as always!

Do you have random plated parts as spares and use them, then get the used ones cleaned up and plated?

It's one thing to be good at playfield touch ups
It's one thing to be good at clear coating
It's one thing to be good at wiring
It's one thing to be good at cabinet restoration / decals
It's one thing to be good at choosing good beer

It's another level altogether to be good at ALL these things!

Love this thread!

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

TOTAN wiring continues.
This ones starting to remind me s bit of that BSD I just finished a couple weeks ago.
[quoted image]
Part of the problem is the condition but honestly most of it is my own OCD.
When I see a rusty socket I want to replace them all.
[quoted image]
When I replace them all then I don’t want to use old wire.
[quoted image]
When I use new wire then so want to make sure it can’t short any possible way do I need protection
[quoted image]
When I put those protections in place then I have to make sure they stay put so I need zip ties.
[quoted image]
Then if I go through all that I may as well make it easier to mate back into the main harness so I need a plug.
[quoted image]
But what if someone else plugs it in wrong?Need to make sure that is impossible so I need to make a different scheme for the plug
[quoted image]
You get the idea I am sure and this is happening at every single socket ,switch ,and coil. It’s the difference in doing it in 30 hours or 60 but it isn’t always noticed or appreciated.[quoted image][quoted image]

The devil is in the details, Chris, and this is why your work stands out above others!

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

After some organizing I am in a much better spot to start dealing with these three cabinets.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

I get sad when your "before" cabinet is better than my current cabinet. LOL

Greta work as always!
