yes not easy to find one as I said at the beginning of this thread.

On Saturday with my friend Atarimania, It took 3 hours.







It is not perfect, difficult to perfectly center the side, but the result is great I think, I am not able to say how many hours i spend on this machine, but i am sure a lot.







After installing the t-molding


So I can really say  : I save it !!  :D  :spaceace:

Time now to install everything else on the cockpit, monitor, PCb's etc.

Before I check the pictures I made in 2010 to install the monitor, and do the same, but it is not correct so i must flip it.









When I power on the first time i only have one basic dot on the center of the monitor, the PCB's game weren't powered properly.



After checking all voltage and little work on the power brick I finally have the PCB's game running.




Here is the status of the voltage on the J5 connector, game PCB's not plugged but everything else yes

I have this

Red lead to pins 1, 2, 3
Black lead to pins 4, 5
17 vdc unregulated so it is ok

Red lead to pin 6
42 v instead 36 a little high but it is without plug the pcb boards

Red lead to pin 8
Black lead to pin 9
I have 15 v instead of 6.3 vac

Red lead to pin 10
Black lead to Pin 14
5.15 v instead of 80vac I have no pin in 14 position.

Red lead to pin 11
Black lead to pin 13
28 v instead of 65vac

No sound, for that I test 2 years ago my PCB's on an upright cabinet, all seems working but without sound so it is not a surprise, this time I have the demo scene I think on a vertical line.

Still half part of the picture, I am waiting for some components to try to fix it.



In the meantime, still small but time consuming part to do, the bezel, remember totally home made  :P





on location to take and verify the size.




Finishing the work and paste the last part







A little few adjustment needed before close the cab

yes this is the end, the end of the cosmetic parts, with the large T-molding on the top.
But before that, let's see if the huge work on the hand made bezel is well done.







It seems to be quite good, some nice reflexions isn't it ?
Can wait to see the whole picture !!







T-molding





And finally more than 7 years after picking up :spaceace:

today it was the first time i saw this on my cockpit  :spaceace: :spaceace:



Things done :
Rewire J105, and verify a lot of soldering, J103 for example.
but after that I only decide to move pot  R79 & R76 for X and Y size.











But after shut down and power on another time to verify the test mode another half picture but horizontal this time.



Edit it's ok now explanation was bad soldering on Q5.

happy with that yes, but it is not over, I must fix the sound and before find the issue with the green. no real change with the pot.
