Started tearing apart a routed T2. Game was actually flipping fine. No major wear besides lifted inserts. No mechanical or electrical issues besides the standard burnt GI connectors on the driver board. That was repaired and I already refreshed the speaker panel and replaced all the speakers.
Hoping to do a full restore.
My timing is to get everything off the playfield, cleaned, inserts removed and glued back in*, and all ready for New England spring time to throw some clear and do touch up once it gets warmer. Also in that time frame clean all metal parts and rebuild all mech. Attempt to save all plastics. If that’s not possible I’ll buy a set from Peter in butham.
Tonight I plan to remove switch matrix wiring harness and all mechanicals left on underside. Too is completely stripped. Wire forms basically just slipped out with little resistance.
*the images and more or less great on the inserts but I believe they have to be removed and reglued and releveled. I haven’t seen anyone just remove them without scraping off the art. Hopefully I can do that here.
