I am in the process of restoring a whirlwind. I currently have a brand new WPC coin door in my new cabinet which has the 4 service buttons and different wiring harness connector.

This is obviously different than my system 11 coin door which has 3 service buttons and different wiring harness connector.

What are my options here? Can I take the mechs out of the system 11 and put them on the newer WPC coin door? Is there an adapter I can use instead of doing that?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

no, there's no adapter.

Ok so I can take the system 11 coin door harness and swap it with the WPC one. Didn't. know you could do that.

swapping harnesses is an option, but you might need to figure out a way to mount the button bracket, the wiring length to the switches on the sys 11 are shorter to the service switches.

Obviously, the outer door will look way different. Any reason you cannot just repaint your original coin door so it stays original to system 11 ?

Yeah I guess I could just paint the door. Good point. That's probably the easiest option

Here a link to Bryan Kelly's resto video of an MM coindoor, system 11 stamped steel doors get the same "spatter" finish. This weekend I'm repainting my first sys 11 door for an Earthshaker and I just tested out his method on some scrap metal, damned if it doesn't look super close to the real deal.

One addition I might make, courtesy of CosmoKramer, is to chill your gloss black spray paint in the freezer for 15 minutes or so prior to painting the spatter. I found that at room temperature I was getting too fine a spatter pattern, and chilling the paint a bit made the globs a little larger and closer to the original finish.

I’m in the process of swapping over a new WPC coin door into my system 11.

I’m wondering about the slam tilt switch. The old system 11 door incorporates a diode whereas the new wpc type door doesn’t. Do I need to swap the switch over?

Not sure if it’s absolutely necessary, but I would swap the diode over.
