Test fit complete (pop bodies & caps are time-period incorrect yes, came like that), bought new fuse holders to put in tomorrow, removed the old ones a few months ago. Finally things are moving along after all pieces of this game layed dormant for a few months!
New cabinet has some gaps as if they made the later playfield a little longer in the 70's, but considering the complete lack of proper cabinets it will be fine, I'll just have to align it nicely for the shooter rod and make sure it doesn't shift.
Onward! Still searching for a head cabinet. This body cabinet will get sanded and then bondo'd and sanded again soon. Of course all Star-Jet parts will be easily pulled out again before that, nothing was screwed in yet.
