Arcade Lifestyle / TRON restoration
« on: October 08, 2015, 09:11:33 PM »
Finally we are happy to say one of our big project restorations and iconic cabinet and grail machine for many of us finally ended and everyone is enjoying this great machine here in Arcade Vintage.

Last year I purchased this Tron in September 2014 from a friend forum member Thwocker from Holland, we arranged the pick up from Marco´s and everything was easy thanks to him.

The machine needed desperately a new bottom part due to the big humidity problem on the wood and all electric and game parts due to the corrosion... complete restoration was ahead to bring back this jewell to his former glory.

The task was difficult so I decided to relay the big task in my good friend Ricardo, Ricky2001 in the forums one of the best arcade technicians and enthusiast with incredible restorations, so I wait and prayed to him to accept this project ...and he said yes instantly with no doubt for this big challenge.  :D

The machine arrived to Alicante and after some weeks after I decided to put it in my truck to make another 900km trip to visit my friend Ricardo in Segovia.

In Ricardo´s workshop with others great cabs waiting for future restorations...

Many jobs to start with and focus in the principal problems

Separate all the componets for a good clean, test and repair.

Replace the bottom base and start to fill the damage areas.

Panel rust free and new panel overlay from

More rust free finish, coin door painted

All the major jobs to repair the wood taken and time to stand up again at last!

Time to put it all back together

This detail of restoration is awesome!

New marquee from too, the quality is very good, also all the 4 tube lights changed.

Ricky2001 on the left and his friend Javi who always help him in restorations.

I was so excited when I saw this incredible level of restoration.

Loading TRON and other machines restored by him.

My friend and copilot René accompanied me all the trip and we arrived at home at 4am after a 20 hours non stop trip.  :o

Finally saying good bye to Segovia from his Roman famous 1st century AD acueduct

Ricky2001 and Javi in our Arcade last May in the Arcade Con Event...Me personally and all the Arcade Vintage Asociation we will be always so thankful to Ricky2001 and his big dedication to restore our Arcades.
