Would that be the "light", or "zero" Coke? And if it does work, could Fanta do as well?

I would say use the zero variant, as it has no sugar

the active component in cola is phosphoric acid.

sugar will make things "sticky"  Grin

EPISODE 05: "Like new dresses..."

Starring : Darth Nuno

...and an other unexpected guest : a bug


And here's the giant joint  brand new vinyl, a roll of 4 x 3 meters :



Well, the original vinyl was fixed with double side adhesive, but because the brand new vinyl is a little bit finer, I would like to test something else first, something that would fix all the surface.
After my research, it seems that applying vinyl on metal is not a very common or usual thing?  Let's try these 2 products that may do the thing :



Let's do a test on samples...



36 hours... it doesn't stick very well...  confused



Not a problem, I'll finally go with the original way...double side adhesive. Ok it's time to cut 6 pieces of vinyl :



I'm checking the width of the piece of vinyl... perfect!  Cool  arrow



As I said, double side adhesive...



...will to the trick, like this  Wink  arrow



I apply it like a side art on a cabinet. First, I stick the first half of the vinyl...



...and the other part :



Et voilą :



Same job for the second 'Gun Base Assy' ...



Most the the screws on the 'Gun Base Assy' were damaged & rusted... I'll replace all of them by brand new ones :



...progressing...



...and this is it! 6  'Gun Base Assy' with their new dresses...  Kiss  arrow



I'll now 'stand up' all the 6 'Gun Base Assy' for a last cleaning...



...but also.. what?



...an other bug here?! Ok, friendlier than the giant spider from the last episode!  Tongue



Ok, so I said that I  'stand up' all the 6 'Gun Base Assy' for a last cleaning but also to cut holes for the wires and screws.



Episode E05 is also available in this video Wink  arrow



The End

Great, mate,

It's difficult to have motivations to continue even with the cold temperatures outside (and inside)

But I think you'd like to see all this mess rebuilt as soon as you can, especially when you read your
technician book that shows you it's only a HUGE meccano toy.  lol

Maby it's time you put some heaters in G3 Bruno, i'm worried of condensation with all that steel....
ATM there's a cozy 17 degrees in The Shed, and believe me, that makes a difference!

Yes. Temporary put a few radiators along the walls, under the windows and perhaps some at the door/entrance. Cool is good, but once you have these metal parts there, and electronics, especially during winter you would do well to mind the ambient temperature.

EPISODE 06: "Monolith!"

Starring : Darth Nuno
Guest star : Sun



The 'Gun Base Assy' #1 is now ready...



to receive its ...Gun Assy, sounds logical!  Wink  arrow



A couple of connectors to set...



...and I can now put the first 'Seat Assy'!  Cool



Easy access to the screws, thanks to a 'service' opening   arrow



It's done!  Smiley  arrow



Now same job for the 'Gun Base Assy' #2...let's move it on its 'monolith' position!  arrow



Unfortunately, the half of the seats are damaged...see  confused  arrow



I'll have to rebuild these parts. Long time ago, when I had a bike (CBR 600), I had to repair the motorcycle seat (following an small accident). I'll check that way to make rebuild the damaged/missing ones...hope this won't cost too much!

Ok, here's also parts to clean : the 'Gun Base Assy' edge protection :



Thinner is really good for cleaning such parts, see  arrow



On location, once fully cleaned  arrow



...and TWO  Smiley  arrow



Monolith...again!  Cool



Same job... THREE!  arrow



FOUR!



During this hard work, I fortunately got 'moral support' from my daughter...



...yes Sun?

I won't move from here until the game is running!

OK, let's accelerate the work then!  Roll Eyes Grin

On the 'Gun Base Assy' #5, I notice an hack done at this level! See the white wire...



...coming for the 'box boards #1' into the 'Gun assy' :



Inside the 'Gun assy', that white wire apparently provides 110V to... a power supply located there! What the hell?  shock  arrow



Ok, I'll check l8ter the purpose of this 'hack/additional power supply' here! Let's finish the assembling first for now.

FIVE & SIX are done!  Cool  arrow



It takes shape, hell yeah!  Kiss



...and here's this episode 6 in this video arrow

I want to sit in that seat and hold that gun, AND FIRE SOME LASERS, NOW!

About the damaged seats, you can actually rebuild the wooden seat-panel if you un-screw it from under the seat, remove the old staples and buy some new leather. Genuine is more expensive, but there are synthetical alternatives too. Then get some camping-matrass and cut it to fit your wooden seat panel there. Then cut out a piece of leather to fit over both the matrass and panel and use a stapler to attach it underneath the wooden plate, just as the original was.

I am curious though how one can fix these cigarette burns on the white plastics. This is what actually annoys me the most. That people are/where playing Galaxian3 *smoking at the same time*!? What the hell are people thinking??

(... they are not laser-burns, are they?)

Remember the '80s?  Every game had cig burns...  I remember not even noticing the smoke as my parents smoked too.

*note...  I did not follow in those footsteps!   Wink

It's great to see how you assemble every part. It will be very satisfying to see it working within a couple of days/weeks.

I guess I have mentionted this before but back in time I have vomited in your Galaxian 3 (Lunapark at Blankenbergen)   oppps  oppps  lol - not sure which seat though.  Grin

In my defence: I was young, beach party, much of drinks, impressing girls, arcadehal next to it ... well you know the drill. :-)
