Wood or Metal
« on: July 06, 2016, 07:12:16 pm »
Another boring conversation regarding wood or metal CPs.

Sorry, but I have Stargate that was converted to WWF.  The CP needs bondo badly so I was looking at ArcadeShop and they have metal Williams 20th Anniversary CPs. But with thse metal panels I do not see where I can attach the hinge or the latches.  The WWF CP had a thin metal panel that was to reinforce the control panels (for rough users I guess) which was screwed from underneath, so when stripping the CP I got more gouging from the screws.

SO what to do?  I sure like the metal CP, but should I keep the wooden one and repair it to make the multi Williams?   :dunno
If I had only one wish, it would be for three more wishes.
