I have currently misplaced a whole SD card full of photos, so there's not really a lot of in progress shots of the cab being stripped and cleaned, when I find it I will update the article.
Here's the photo's from the original post, as you can see the cab it pretty dirty, Its had a switcher installed at some point along with some good butchery on the loom, The rear wooden panel that holds 2nd ARII in place was broken. No Game board Present, but I could see the potential :)
|Front view missing monitor at the time|
|Broken cabinet, Switcher, bird Crap and an old sandwich|
|Only real damage to the cab is the bottom left corner as shown in photo|
|Power brick covered in 25 years of Arcade dust.|
Here's some photos of the cab with all of the loom been cleaned and refitted. As you can see, the back panel still needed to be replaced at the time of these photos. But It now look a damn site better.
I'll be the first to admit that I'm no carpenter, but my attempt at remaking the wooden back panel didn't come out too bad. I made it from some old Ply wood that I had and coated in in black emulsion paint. I should have black vinyl, I might do this once other parts of the cab a completed.
|Everything fixed in place|
