Quoted from CTHOMAS1998:
So, I'm assuming all of us who bought the kit will be receiving that email. Dang, my plans were to install over the 3 day weekend.
If you do it, let me give you some tips:
- Take a thorough inventory of all the parts before you begin - you don't want to start the job and discover a part or harness is missing. When doing this also check the harnesses (they have tiny numbered tags) to make sure you don't get an unexpected duplicate.
- Get yourself 2 L brackets and 2 M4 x 5mm metric machine screws. Inexplicably, these are not included in the kit and are required for mounting the new power supply inside the cabinet.
- When removing and cutting out the old serial cables for the old kit (thick black with green/red wrapped ends) be careful not to snip the cable to the crystal ball which looks very similar. Ask me how I know.
- Get yourself a drill stop which will make the operation safer than the tape the kit indicates: amazon.com link »
- Get the 3d printed dimpler tool, it will make drilling more accurate: https://pinside.com/pinball/market/shops/1139-pinworlds/03336-woz-lighting-20-playfield-dimpler-tool
- When you install the small satellite boards, refer to the wiring diagram in the installation manual. Try to match their orientation as closely as possible as some of the harnesses are a pretty tight reach.
- The light for the ramp sign plugs into a completely different board further away from its original spot. You will need to clip some zip ties to get it to reach the new board. If you boot your game and don't have lighting on the ramp sign, you forgot to plug this one in.
- Be careful with the munchkin playfield - the rubber stoppers holding it in place are old and easily torn. Press up on the plastic rivets from below rather than pull on the plastic; it's brittle and easily broken. Ask me know I know.
