    I’ve begun working on the backbox and noticed a few wiring quirks that don’t look factory... first off is the wiring above the 1st and 3rd player score reel area - using one blue connector, and then using two blue wire connectors - looks illogical to me. Also - thicker than original green wire leading to a light on the front of the backbox... any one else see examples of any of these on your Mata Hari?

    Definitely some hacking and modifications done by one of the former owners.
    This type of bulbs would not have been used in 1977-78 when the machine was built.
