I’m back with an update on the project.

So all the wires for the controlled lamps are done. I’ve made a video showing the lamps on all three playfields.

The wire harnesses for the bonus display is done, just need to check if I can use the wires for the displays from MGoW or if I need to make new ones.

Most wires are done now, the wires for the GI on the main playfield and the illumination for the cellar I will make directly on the playfield and not on the wireboard.

Up next is start working on the cabinet and to begin moving things from the wireboard to the playfield.

Still there are some metal parts missing and I hope my contact in US can help me out otherwise I have to manufacture them myself unless some kind person here on the forum have spare metal parts.

I’ll keep you updated.

Post what parts you are missing. I have a couple things and I also know an old arcade shop near me that may have some parts.

The metal parts I need for the lower playfield are the ball rails around the playfield

and the two ball guides.

On the main playfield I need these ball guides

And if I could get hold of the metal brackets that holds the lower playfield it would be great.

Last wires on the main playfield are done!

Time to bring some order into chaos, I’ve started to tie the wires together with cable ties.

When all the wires are tied together it is time to prepare to move everything from the wire board to the playfield.
After color coding wires I’m looking forward to do some wood work on the cabinet.

Are any of these the same as used on Black Hole?

Can't you just bend some wire and make the ball guides yourself, looks like they should be pretty easy to make as long as you have the holes in the playfield to measure against.

I didn’t find any of these. I did find a spare bat kicker though.

You could make the ball guides
