Looks to be a great group here i hope to give and receive information and knowledge.
I'm currently restoring a Taito Space Invaders which will be a complete rebuild of all the cabinet metal work and electronics.
My other little restorations were many Sinclair Spectrums and Atari 2600 so now to try something a little larger.

Regards

Kevin

Welcome !.

I think a lot of us probably started the same way. Still have a soft spot for Spectrums, but it can be difficult looking back once you get used to arcade hardware. As addictive to collect as they are to play.

Hi Kevin, welcome to the group. Where abouts in Lincolnshire are you?

Is the Space Invaders an upright cabinet, or a cocktail table?

Aah other end of Lincolnshire to me.

I made a log of the work I did on my Taito cocktail cabinet. Bit of inspiration

Thanks Davey looks fantastic a lot of hard work and love gone in to the restoration, I'm just in the process of sorting the metal work and ordering parts so seeing you've already found a fan replacement 
has already saved me hours of looking Smile
