OK well, apart from installing 1 555 lamp in the coin door and installing the little sync board I decided to call this project


FINISHED


This was the poor sad Q*bert shell as I received it as an AMAZING gift in the year 2010 during Eurocade:



And after some years waiting, collecting parts and finally starting the restoration process here it is. I'm happy. I'm proud. I think this is probably one of my better restorations to date Smiley Love it !!

I have to thank a lot of great people on this forum who have somehow contributed to this project!

Isn't it amazing how each and every board had the correct serial number while they came from all over the place Wink Wink Wink Wink

Very, very nice.  Space Ace

I do like the look of the matt black vinyl on the frontpanel, I want to try it also for some of my games, although I have formica black role in storage. The vinyl seems to do the job very well though.
