Quoted from Ecw0930:
oldschool77 this is the one i'm looking at also. I don't care about the siren, it's going in my house. That siren would need to be disabled anyway. What's "GI"? and i can't tell if it's got a lot of fade... where are you seeing that?
The translite is faded bad (If you like all OEM like i do, Mayfair want's $150 for a new one, so factor that in, no one else has the NOS ones....i checked). Most of the gold areas on the PF had significant paint loss (Typical on GW but worth noting), and the "cloud" plastics are super faded in the purple. And it's been sitting so long all the rubbers have turned into chalk, so there's tons of "powder" all over the place....not a huge deal, was gonna do a full tear down anyways, but still worth noting.
I agree with the Siren, that wasn't the deal breaker for me. The problem was she's listing it for her dad....so there's a ton of delay getting back with answers to her questions (Like nearly a week to answer two questions). Not her fault, she's doing the best she can do but it made things frustrating. She eventually sent me pics of the PF, (clean) boards, and a game play vid. It seems to work fine except the GI (General Illumination) is out. Again....mostly cosmetic stuff and fixable which is OK, but still not (in my opinion) worth $1000 so i moved on.
