after 2 years of waiting, finally found the time for this restoration.
i'm giving myself 1 month to do all the major work (hope i can do it) , cabinet restoration (stencil, clear coating), buffing, playfield swap, because after that i'll be very busy.
here's what i'm going to do.
repaint the cabinet and backbox after preps, stencil and clear both of them.
new playfield (cpr) swap everything
new translite (cpr)
NOS mpu (from k's arcade) brand new, i was lucky to get this from a friend for almost nothing (he never used it for his machine).
re-condition driver board (from k's arcade) also got this from my friend.
rebuilt the door.
polish everything i can.
and a few mods (got to).
and a few surprises along the way....
i already removed everything from the backbox and cabinet.
so today i sanded the outside of the cabinet (took me about 3 hours to have it nice and smooth) i will finish the backbox and the inside of the cab tomorrow.
it has begun, let's start we these pictures for today.
