I thought you peeps deserved some more eye candy. The following machines were organ donors for my restoration:

Three of them?  That must have taken some doing.

So what happens to the the cab that wasn't restored and wasn't split in half?

OK guys, I purposely left out details to get you riled up. Those machines belonged to someone else. They were seriously water damaged and stripped of parts. The guy was completing 3 machines  from 6 donors, and he was gracious enough to supply me with some parts to finish mine. So in the end, 2 very crappy water-damaged machines got sledge-hammered, while 2 got restored.   ;)

glad to hear 2 got restored.

Try it in MAME. The sound effects are all messed up on the 48-in-1.

Well done on the part aquirments RayB.  Have you decided to re-stencil her or not?
I probably will not. At least not any time soon. If I do, it will be in couple years. I'd actually rather find another cab in better condition. This one is not perfect, but looks good from a few feet away.
New shell finally acquired!
It's housing "Arkanoid" right now and is painted grey, but the paint is coming right off real easy using a technique I just learned: packing tape.

How:
1. Apply strips of packing tape to surface and rub it for maximum adherence.
2. Peel off the tape. Paint comes off with it!
3. Repeat where bits didn't come off.
4. Remove final bits using ....... (TBD)

I will post photos and video tomorrow. It's quite cool to see it come off so easily and the condition of the art underneath so vibrant and glossy compared to my previous JF cabinet.

Juno First, great game, and beautiful cabinet. Now that you have a new shell, hopefully this restore will pick up for you. Looking forward to how this turns out.

Don't ruin a perfectly good Arkanoid!    ;D

I wouldn't worry about saving the art.  Just strip and stencil

Ray, did this progress?  I'm interested to see if you ended up repainting this once you had the artwork exposed.

I have very little passion for this hobby any more. I got a lot more paint off the new project cab and am not interested in finishing the clean-up. The interior is stinky and not as clean as the first cab. So I am cutting my losses and donating cab #2 to whoever will take it (there's a guy here in Ottawa who has been looking for years for a Juno First).

I took a few parts the first was missing, like the Gottlieb coin door and back door mounting plate.

Here are photos:

THE END

Recently I finally convinced myself that enough was enough.
A. I have no time for projects
B. I have no time for the hobby in general
C. I need money.
D. I need space.

So, after 11 years and not completing this ---gosh-darn--- project, I have SOLD IT and all parts for it. It is today on its way across the border to a soon to be fan, an 11 year old who holds the Mad Planets high score record (Twin Galaxies verified and everything!).

I'll still get to play Juno First on my MAME machine (once I get it fixed!).
Next on the chopping block: Galaga and Ms PacMan.
