Quoted from WeatherbyMAG:

Just finished cabinet job on Seawitch.... I bought this as a nasty pile of parts at the York show last fall..... now she's just waiting for me to finish the PF clear coat job.....
Also moved some Sterns into my back wall & broke up my Bally monopoly there in my game room....

Green and blue are primary colors. You should consider setting that Seawitch cab next to your Big Game.

Nice lineup.

Green is primary in light, yellow in paint, but it would be chronologically correct that way!

Wow & here I just wanted the two that have repainted cabs next to each other (Drac & SW) alongside my other re-pinated cab Ballys LOL. Never thought about trying to color coordinate my collection. Although on 3 of my Ballys, PB, Silverball & EK I have them all together because they all have Mirrored back glasses & they look good together, so maybe I do go for some semblance of order?

Any info on the Rotor Relay in the backbox for 1982 Iron Maiden . It looks to hook up to the big lamp. In need of one. Thanks.

Need a lockdown bar. Couldn’t come across one at Allentown. Going on a trident.

From Hot Hand to Dragonfist, they will all fit. Also, a Data East lockdown bar will fit.

Trident came out before Hot Hand.
The Trident I had as a teen had the earlier screw studs mounting lockdown bar.
I think the lockdown bar changed during Hot Hand production?? My Hot Hand also has the screw stud lockdown bar (I seem to remember adjusting the screws about a year ago to get the lockdown bar to fit more snuggly).

[Edit] Trident lockdown bar receiver shows it needs the earlier screw stud mounting lockdown bar.

Hot Hand showing it has the later lockdown bar receiver for the metal slot latch mounting lockdown bar.

My Dracula cab had the screw type bar while my HH had the slotted bar.

I figure the later slotted bars were another cost saving measure on the production line. I like those earlier units with the adjustable screws.

Gottlieb did the same thing, earlier ems screw type, later ems slotted type.

Finally repopulating my mpu200. Stripped the battery damaged components, acid wash, sand traces, alcohol rinse, re tinned all the traces a month ago.

Repopulated all the components today, now just have to solder and trim ends, ram sockets and new header pins.

Is there a resource for instruction cards for this era? Specifically looking for Stars and Flight 2000.

inkochnito does some amazing work restoring these cards. We're very lucky to have someone who spends the amount of time he dedicates to the hobby.

Slowly working away on the projects.

Galaxy mpu board all done, quicksilver got a new rectifier board.

Thanks again to barakandl for the dual nvram and the DIY rectifier boards. Great products.
