These things were standard equipment at about every arcade I visited back in the 80s. Pretty fun, but I preferred putting my money in a "real" video game then. I'm interested how these work, although I think it will be pretty similar to Nintendo's gun game.

that is basicly the same door, it just has only 1 coin shute instead of 2

Looks like you need to print the sidearts as well then and "carpent" the two sidepanels as well  Wink

Re: The cut-off top... "What could be the reason behind this?"

I'd guess that it was too tall to fit somewhere, likely in the ops van, or the top got damaged/broken off.

Nice artwork Smiley

At least they lined it out nicely with the top of the cab..... Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Anyway, i still love this little butchered cabinet, and it can be fixed...

Next up: cleaning the cab

Would look a lot less obvious if you take off the metal rails and use T-molding along the top instead. Looks like almost all of the side art border may be there under the rail so it's really not far off looking good Wink

Did they do a matching Phoenix cab, I wonder? If they did, it'd make a nice pair.

actually, this cab just uses molding - without the T. no slot there, just flat molding. t-molding.com carries that stuff! as for the sideart: i'd say no need to scan / print them, they still look good and will be fine with some minor touchups!

as for the top the question is: leave it like that or try to re-insert the missing triangles?

Did they do a matching Phoenix cab, I wonder? If they did, it'd make a nice pair.

unfortunately NO! at least not to my knowledge. however, i hadn't heard of that pleiads version before bruno came up with his, so perhaps there is a spanish version out there somewhere ...

If i had your skills, patience and craftsmanship i would fix it. But i don't, so that has to wait.
For now i'll be happy with a working monitor, new front art and t-molding without the t.  Wink
Plus it will be sandwiched between two cabs, so it won't bother me too much!

Have you guys (ully & Bruno) got the manual of cab?

thx, but it's all a matter of trial and error! pleiads was my first real restoration and i made some rookie mistakes back then. everything is doable, it's just a matter of how much you want it! Space Ace
