Yes, there are several nicks and scratches, but that's OK with me. I'm not going for new, I'm just trying to get it back to original. I'm OK with signs of use on this cab -- in fact I rather prefer it. It lends to a more authentic experience. But I do want everything to work.

Man, will my cab EVER be finished?

This project is on hold, temporarily, while I complete a cab repair project for a local pizzeria owner.

Project details here:

Once I'm done, I'll resume this one.

I just bought a DD cab that was probably in better shape then yours for $100 last week.  I thought about restoring it but after playing DD for 5 minuets I realized that the game has not aged well from what I remember. I can still pick up a game like Final Fight, Streets of Rage, Ninja Turtles, X-men, Alain Vs Predator or Simpsonís and still find it fun. Only thing DD has now is found memories of the NES version and classic intro music.

I'm actually getting very close to reviving this again -- I've been using my DD cab for lots of monitor testing recently, and I'm getting motivated to finish cleaning off the other side's paint so I can call this one done. I'm not going to be going overboard with this - I just want it cleaned up and playable.

I do also have 2 other boards that I've bought that I will probably be working on this winter, if time allows. It'll be a good lesson in using a logic probe, for sure.

I need to get this project cleared up before I can start my Ms Pac restoration.

This project is STILL on my back burner - I have taken on 2 more multi-cab repair projects since then, as well as completely remodeling my workshop to convert it to a game room.

But alas, I've still only completed one side of my side art stripping process. And I still have two boards that don't boot properly.

This winter I plan on getting my new arcade room set up and I now have a new workroom area in my furnace room. I'm getting better at PCB repair now, and I should be able tackle the 2 other PCBs that need work.

Shameless bump...

Free Asteroids, yes.

Also have bought (and re-sold) a cocktail Omega Race, cocktail Space Invaders, and I am now the proud owner of:

Star Wars upright
Pinbot
Neo Geo 1 slot
Marvel Vs Capcom
Donkey Kong
Another Donkey Kong


and a few more....

What? You think I should take my time? Go a little slower?
