Quoted from TheRingMaster:
Hi there joker!
Yes that's what I mean, the standoffs for the displays. Your game had a different setup than what was on mine. Mine only had/have nylon standoffs that are pressed into the holes in the board. Then on top of them there's a small pointy part with a lock mechanism. Think they are called blind hole mounted or something else blind hole.. Hehe. But they are not really super reliable it seems, a bit flexing so it would be fine to come up with a better idea I guess. It was apparently different on different machines even within the same kind of game. I might consider the screw style like you have. Will let you know if I need measures! I think new ones were shipped with the new xpin displays at some point in time but the ones I got did not have any new mounting hardware.
And the planking, sounds it would work like you describe with a primer. My plan is to sand and use some sort of putty. Need a good one though. I think it looks worse than it is but we will see once I start to sand it.
Thanks for the tips! =)
Ok, I understand what you mean now. On the backside, that is what's holding my display circuit board. You can also see one of the display studs in the bottom center of the picture.Not sure if anything on my game is original to it.
