That looks like a pretty daunting project.

Yes and no.  I'll have to figure out someway to reframe the glass, and I'll have to redo the art on the glass, but it's otherwise complete.  I got a few signs of life last night.

nice Firepower!

That Firepower is a polished turd rescued from laying in the mud in San Antonio.  Then it spent several years in an old folks home before I got it back.  It's got a row/column of lights out but otherwise 100% and probably the most reliable System 3-7 pin on the planet.  That warped head puts pressure on the interconnect.


Anyway, here's what the playing area looked like prior to cleaning.  The cardboard clown on the left was hit with a paper towel slightly dampened with lavender Fabuloso.  This pic was taken after one wipe, the dirt was so thick you couldn't see the art.

if you can get high res scans or pix of the art I can try to clean it up for you.

That'd be cool.  My glass is missing about 95% of the paint.   :lol

Best pics I've found so far....

Very cool!
Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.

Ha. Turns out that assembly comes out with two screws.  Hit it with Turtle Wax Dash and Glass.  Much better.

Also - the backglass.  Fix this, malenko.

Also - I got it to reset and start a game.  No target movement but this is progress.
