    I finished up some deferred maintenance before the yard work begins:

    Replaced burned GI connector and fixed an eddy sensor on the wife's Road Show

    Replaced the battery holder in FishTales

    Replaced a bad opto in Who Dunnit

    Now I need to get the mower started...

    This is a great thread idea! This weekend I:

    Replaced the flyback on a k7000
    Repinned a ton of connectors on my TSPP since they were half broken and pretty brittle
    Replaced my rusty TSPP legs with yellow painted legs.

    I made a paint booth off my kitchen and I fixed and repainted a backbox for my Funhouse.

    My wife would kill me if I made the kitchen a paint booth!

    The repair I wanted to do was to diagnose a switch problem on The Shadow. Found the problem requires a new part, not just an adjustment. Part was ordered...hope that counts.

    My wife and I have been busy getting a Judge Dredd working for a friend of ours. Definitely keeping us busy and very enjoyable. We have the machine 95% going.

    When it got here,

    Left Flipper was staying up (locked on) when you turned the machine on
    Machine was resetting
    4 tech errors at start up
    Lines in the DMD
    Planet did not work
    Planet needed adjusting
    Arm did not work
    4 fuses blown
    No back box light lights
    over 50 bulbs not working

    The guy who owns it is coming over the Friday and I am sure he will be happy! He was think about scrapping it.

    Was fixing the last stuff on my ToM.

    Changed the last rubbers, replaced a broken switch in the trapdoor, swapped some leds to brighter ones, rebuilt a bad slingshot with new coil/sleeve/plunger, installed a brand new topper and some other stuff I already forgot.

    So glad you asked. I was working on a Gottlieb Hot Shot. It was little stuff - lights were always on above the score for player two, match lights weren’t lighting and the credit reel isn’t catching on the teeth correctly. Haven’t fully solved the last one jetzt

    Changed right flipper coil on high speed. Both flipper coils on gorgar. Installed shaker in game of thrones and cleaned and waxed my lotr. Little busy the past weekend.

    I just added the last few touches to my restored cabinet. New Williams stickers.

    Those drop targets are sick.

    I fixed an issue with my ACDC not being loud enough. Added amps from pinwoofer as well as some nice jbl backbox speakers, and a dual voice coil sub to the cabinet from pinwoofer. It rocks!

    Then I fixed the issue of genesis not having enough bass by hooking my now unused external sub to it. That game sounds amazing now!

    Waiting on parts for Jungle Lord. A switch needs replaced and flipper needs rebuilt.

    Changed a broken flipper bushing on my RFM.

    Fixed a road show with the help of friends last night so i could finish my league scores for the week. Haha. The owner operator was too busy winning a tournament so we fixed a scoop switch for city start.

    I ended up putting a solid score for league so that’s good.
