I like everything better about the Taito SI with one exception: the half-mirror moon set-up on the Midway is simply brilliant...but everything else this one is nicer IMHO.

I have a few chips and scratches like Remi's cab. I wanted to fix those up. Any thoughts?

I understand that all the artwork is vinyl, is that right?

Really nice cab. I have the multigame board installed (Braze) which allows me to play 8 games that were built on this boardset.

Here's the link:

weird.
anyway it's fixed now.
I meant the other taito version of the SI part2, the one with the blue moon, neon and red backdrop.
@ simplesi: are you sure it's vinyl? I don't own one but from what I remember it's silkscreened on the wood plank.

Definitely sure it's vinyl. Can you see the print work just below the coin door?
