That was a surprise twist to this story,  Its NASTY, horrible in fact, such a shame for such a low mileage machine. Currently, Jenn Is building a rotisserie out of 2 engine stands (Ill show that project) but the good news is I got lucky on parts and found a repro P/F. so this will be a swap.... of sorts.

   Heres the spinner project, If you got some vision.... Its actually 2 foldable engine stands, getting trimmed out in stainless. I don't know if this has ever been done before, but it will certainly be industrial heavy duty when its done. So far its been all bolt together (no welding).

I know right, makes you wonder why some of those coin guys didn't at least clean there stuff sometimes...Ive never played hs2 Maybe it sucks whos to say, saw one working on the utubes (it looks fun), Jenn is curious about the condition of this under all that soot, It was protected from smoldering ash by the glass.... The the temper in the glass, also makes me nervous, When those things pop it is ugly, But for now don't have a spare one.

You make that sound easy ::).... It needs to be stripped and washed with naptha first, (not to mention it has a new P/F) But time is issue, this project so far almost beat me down, it was quite complex and pushed my limits.

I did, it was just so pretty, The original one apparently had diamond plate on it as opposed to clearcoat, A girl just cant ever have enough P/fs around right? 8).... As for you Malenco, I see where your going with that, But don't forget Jenn builds a dozen machines at a time, not crying over just one.

I am getting to that (heres a peek at the new one).... However Jennifer has been talking about paint for years and nobody seems to understand the concept of what I say so for now its all about getting this thing to assembly.

**Mid project observations.... The backbox corner bracket carriage bolts are a odd 1/2 size, with smooth heads non-the less, Don't know what Williams was thinking there, perhaps made there own hardware?, Anyway replacements are at best with minimal markings an the head. Since this isn't really a restoration that could be considered fine, But Jenn has opted for cut/chrome and etch and paint the heads (If anyone wants to watch that process I will post on that) if not that is the plan.... CIRCUT BOARD PANEL: this got deep, I was going to replace it with aluminum however the standoff holes are 3/8" square, too small for a chassis punch, and (I don't have a turret press anymore) Also the aluminum has a dissimilar metal potential (sped up by the voltage is to carry) so connections could be compromised, solution, The old one (a little bit heat warped) is going to be replated in zink/and clear chromate like most likely it was originally. And finally the wire harness, this after some reverse engineering apparently was constructed in sub assemblies and put together to be one harness spiderwebing throughout the whole machine. This explains how Jenn hasn't been able to find any backbox wire, The solution is an ugly prospect, and is going to require a few new tools for Jennifers workbench.

Have to revise my plans.... The new light board may have to be modified a tad to better accommodate a color Lcd  dmd which is physically larger than the original plasma or Led screen,Apparently it does just fit right in, but it seems to come awfully close to the speakers (especially the 2 /5"coax upgrade) and physically overhangs the top of the Dmd panel barely clearing the light board.... which apparently has a sagging problem by design when the bushings wear out (and will be a bit heavier with mirror grade stainless on the back of it) You can see what I mean at the 4 min mark here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmDXzITV-WY  also the chrome guy is having some troubles with the new hardware .So for now the back box is done and waiting for parts to fit,.... new plans will be moving on to the cab.

Anyway, Got some time so lets move this project forward.... Before this the cab goes to paint it needs some work, Mods in particular, (*Not easily reversible). So any purists, may want to look the other way, And as a disclaimer to my friends who expect faithful restores, Well Jenn is ashamed and embarrassed but this machine was less that desirable as built and IMO needs some upgrades So lets at least do them as right as possible And incorporate as not easily reversible given this is my first attempt at such needless butchering..... Here we have the Stainless steel anti theft cable blocks for the undercab lighting, If anyone wants to see the fab process speak up as this is all "real" time,(*Except Mike A, since this is going to be welded, and don't want to offend him >:D) ...or that's just the plan for now,

While Jenn does that, this may a good time to talk about equipment. There is nothing magical here, in fact most of this was done outside in the driveway on a 100 dollar tablesaw, a router (using sawboards and jigs)and a little compressor from W/mart. Working with stainless steel gets a little more advanced however given the difficulty of working with it but it is going well.... The point being, building stuff is fun and you do not need high end stuff to do it nice, you simply just need to know the limitations of what your tools can do so you can do it safely.

Jenn feels you guys missed out on a really fun adventure in fab, it was quite a harsh experience, But almost done, Cut, cleaned, sanded, fit drilled, TIG welded, and polished stainless..... We will move on to the Dmd panel, and the sub speaker mount pad next (more Mods ::)).

Hmmm, we have a curious problem now, so POP QUIZ!!!.... The speaker hole was drilled at 5.50" before it was assembled, as per original, However the new speaker is 8" (7" across the cone) but HOW to modify the hole could be tricky....Any thoughts?

Fasten a piece of wood behind the hole. It will give you something to bite into in the center of the hole.

Yes that would work, But 3 things come to mind. That extends the pilot bit 1/2" before it even touches, and could be a "wobbly" start, and #2, the means of fastening it would have to be carefully done as to not create damage to the outside the hole area and #3 finding center could be considered overly complex.... Close, really close Mike, In fact Jenn will give you that one. but there is another answer, A plug close cut IN the hole , wedged in with toothpicks and set with epoxy. and then cut from both sides to minimize splintering ;)

So with that in mind, I have to cheat this a little in terms of using budget backyard machines on this.... Jenn wants that pilot hole as strait as possible (in hardwood) and had to use a machine so it didn't break my wrist again.

cut the right size hole in a scrap piece, clamp it (or screw it in and putty the holes after), then user a router with a flush trim bit.

Finding the center of a circle is super easy, you can square the corners and draw diagonal lines, or use the compass method.

   That I guess after the fact would have been a faster,cheaper less elaborate solution, Screwing a template to the workbench and centering the cab over it I mean, cutting a 7" over a hole gets into some interesting physics where finding center could be considered difficult and in hindsight dry times for the glue slowed me down ...Jenn cut the plug 1/8 too small (on purpose) and epoxied little bits of paint stick around it, buzzed it on the belt to make a good fit and used wood glue to glue it into the cab (long dry times)... I will post a pic before I cut it for the curious.

*Jenn laughs... My windows are all boarded up and I don't have a clock, so I have no idea what time it is, Its kinda like living in a casino, Perhaps you guys should just stay up later 8) *Giggle....Here is that pic, My thoughts were I wanted to minimize glue slobber since this isn't going to be painted (just cleared) and still get a nice fit.
