I'm about to embark on an overhaul of a NAC in need of some love. 

Bodywork repairs are in hand but I'd love any pointers on sourcing original (Where possible) or decent repro replacement parts for buttons, sticks, stickers, etc.

I've got the links that Astro1 has kindly provided on the New Astro City for sale thread but all others welcome. Has anyone else restored An Astro or New Astro ?

I would have searched the forum but search seems broken at the moment.

Thanks

I assume this coin mech is DOA ? Doesn't seem to be any wiring or switches. 

No matter if it is, I was going to wire a switch under the coin slot anyway.

Control panel will be replaced with either NOS if I can find a decent one at a reasonable price, or a repro with new graphics.

Has anyone ever had a repro panel from Atomic City ? 50 euros for a panel and overlay


Thanks to Andy at Arcade World for the Seimitsu goodies now waiting to go in the panel.

I'm contemplating wiring all of these to 2.8mm spades and having male spades off of the existing harness so I can easily swap out the panel for a one player version. Has anyone done anything similar ? I figure crimping spade terminals will be easier than trying to source and wire another set of 12 pin AMP adapters ?
