So I did my first side-art attachment on my Donkey Kong Junior. It was kind of tricky, but I pulled it off alright.


At first I cleaned the sides of the cab, and removed some old stickerbits, also the old instruction sticker on the CPO.



the new CPO instruction sticker, it came along with the sideart.

the equipment I used for the proces:



Before I started, I looked up some DK jr pics on the internet to make sure I got the right height to place the side art sticker. After measuring up the side of the arcade I attached the sticker with tape to the cabinet and drew a pencil line over the sideart on the cab, to make sure it stayed in it's place.



The outline of the sticker with pencil, just as an extra backup.

The technique I used to peel of the sticker, I got from this youtube clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7u-qiteSOo where you first attach the top half of the sticker by cutting of the top half of the backside of the sticker and then slowly pull it down.


It was kind of tricky so I didnt make photo's of this proces, because it's quite a hassle while standing with a scissor in your mouth peeling of the backside of a huge sticker with the sweat running over your back and your eyes all over the place for air-bulbs..

But it came out fresh!



to make sure, the sideart is on the exact same width on both sides, I measured the backside of the cab which is of course vertical (but a straight line) and the distance to the red boxed line that is running through the whole sideart as background, if you know what I mean.. Kind of hard to explain, but for me it worked. I am happy with the result.

and there was a little pain in the ass part:



But that came out fine too.

Next up, the coin door:

Nice job.  Smiley One question though, I noticed that there is some damage on the sidepanel, did you ever consider restoring it?

yes there is a little damage on the side indeed. But overall it is in quite good condition. There is hardly any scratch or whatever.
My plan is to first fix all the big problems, like the missing side-art, the broken pcb, the cpo etc and then move on to the smaller things like the pacman bite you noticed.
