So it's finally getting there!

I just need to fit

1. the gun handle
2. the PCB set (and buy some!)
3. Finish and install the apron.

I would imagine upon first power on there will be a few teething issues!! Hopefully not too many. I am hoping to finish this now for November so watch this space Tongue

But in the mean time I couldn't resist doing a mock up of the mirror chromed apron with the apron guard...



Notice anything different about it?




Look again

Update!

The Gun Rebuild

Ok so I bought new NOS gun handles earlier in the year to use on this. As the ones on the machine were badly scuffed and had also gone a god awful colour. I am pretty sure I could clean them up and get them looking new again, but the scuff marks in the metal were a little deep in places to polish out.
 
First part was to find the gun handles! LOL
 
 
Aha! Minty looking
 
 
 
 
Right time to remember how I took apart the old one Shocked I couldn't actually remember but luckily it was pretty easy to work out. Polished, chromed and new springs at the ready Thumbs Up
 
 
 
Installing the microswitch and the trigger, you can see how pulling the trigger activates the switch
 
 
Adding the pull back spring. This puts the trigger back into the right place at rest
 
 
Other casing added and lined up, ensuring the trigger and micro switch don't move off their pivots!!
 
 
Chromed bolts going in
 
 
The other side
 
 
 
All bolts tightened, trigger tested for continuity and gun rebuild done! BOOM.

Some higher res pix coming over the weekend. Comparing the old with the new Big smile

when fitting the apron I also took the time to fit the L shaped playfield supports and the hand rails.

Pix or it didn't happen







A good shot of the hand rail supports

I had the translite and the anti glare backglass for a while in the machine. But I hadn't fitted any trim. I bought brand new trim for this and installed it last weekend.

Lower trim installed


The others I had to use a stanley knife and a clean edge and cut to size.




All done!

So I am getting back to this machine now.. (About time!)

I have been putting off the PinLED board replacements for a while now, but I have sourced an original sound board and CPU.

I also have a new DMD but i've just seen this..



So i'm going to have to get one!
