    I miss your restores. This is much more common then your usual stuff, you moving on to Jamma games?

    --Thanks man! Game room is a mess right now but i'll have it sorted out very soon, within the next 2 weeks--

    --Thanks, I don't recommend doing it this way LOL, the brackets are a real pain to fabricate.--

    --I'm still restoring uber rare stuff but yeah, some of the common ones are finally getting some attention.

    Nope, this beast is staying right here. Not even sure what it would go for if i did decide to sell it.

    Amazing!

    So question can you give us dreamers a quick guestimate rundown on cost to do this build? Also instructions plz.

    #66 1 year ago

    Thanks! I truly appreciate the kind words, makes it all worth it.

    Well, it ain't cheap

    I would definitely start with a complete game though. These are going for close to $1,000 nowadays in pretty much any condition.

    To do this level of restoration or scratch build in this case.

    $6-700 for a new or restored cabinet.
    $3-400 for a decent, burn-free 25" monitor (unless the one it came with is is good shape) It could also be rebuilt. $150 or so for flyback and cap kit
    New HAPP coin doors are about $125 each x 4. Stripped and powered coated old coin doors would run a bit less.
    Side art is huge! Looking at about $120 for each side. There's a few different sets out there but they aren't very accurate.
    NOS CPO: $300, but probably never find one. Repro CPOs are about $60.
    NOS leaf joysticks $70-$80 each x 4
    New monitor glass and marquee glass $140
    Repro marquee translite $45
    Jamma Harness, power cord, fan, isolation transformer. $100
    Working PCB $350-$500. Unless you buy the game with it in it.
    New speakers $50
    New t-molding $25
    New leg levelers $20
    Switching power supply $40
    New buttons $20
    New colored coin inserts $20
    New monitor bezel $70
    Metal brackets: $50

    I think that's about it. So around $3,000 plus a lot of TIME.
