Got this on saturday, and although it sort of works, has a few issues. Firstly I have to apologise as I'm going to swear. Someone has fitted an LCD!!!! Aaarrgghhh.

Sound issue, but looking inside I'm not surprised! Looks like freddy kruger has been let loose on the wiring!

Dirty and unloved...

But never fear, chopper is on the case. This will be more of a clean and freshen up, and proper repair of wiring etc. So list of jobs are:

Return all wiring to factory, with no evidence of previous attempts.
Replace gear shifter, as wrong one fitted.
Replace spring on ignition key, as broken
New Power Supply
New Locks On Coin Doors
Source correct monitor and chassis (Found)
Good clean, and we'll go from there.

I removed all this botched wiring! Someone had fitted an alarm to the doors, and even led strip lighting! Should be a jailing offence.

The vga lead only needed to be 2 foot, but oh no, lets fit a 5 metre one...

Perhaps there insurance would only cover drivers with a Cat 1 Alarm.
I do love clearing out old defunct wiring.
Good Work.
