Bruno, did you buy the common light blue t-molding? I have bought it for my Journey but ithe colour is not exactly the same. The original is more into turqoise....did your t-molding colour match the original?

Well, I wasn't sure which one to take, because the color I see on mine wasn't really match any existing color available.
But many DOT owners confirm me to buy that one  :arrow: 20 FT 3/4 INCH Light Blue T-Molding

At first sight, it doesn't really look the same...



... but, as usual, time faded the color, see the back (supposed 'unfaded') of it... it's almost  the same color to me at 90%  :arrow:



Looks great to me!  And it glows like hell  :)

Oh, I've ordered 2 x 20 FT 3/4 INCH Light Blue T-Molding... so I have 1 x 20 feet for sale if you are interested  ;)

Nice looking machine Bruno! Please don't change the original CPO with a repro: it's in good conditions and would be a mess to trash it!  ;)

I won't change it. I was thinking about replace it during my initial inspection, regarding some damages...see  :arrow:









..but after a looooong & strong  cleaning session, here's the best I can do... and I'm very happy with the result!  :)  :arrow:



Used, a little bit damaged, yes, but sooooo authentic!  :-*

A new load of pictures of this gorgeous beast, before 'hiding' it between two cabinets...

such an amazing cab.
Looking for Dragons Lair 1 or 2, Space Ace, Double Dragon, Robotron and yeah... a Shinobi would be cool, too!

Good work, Bruno !

With the black light making those blue lights glowing in the dark is so fantastic.   :-*

Even a bit too much, seems that the marquee looks a bit fade out compared to the brand new gears.
it's detail, and in front of the cab, i'm sure it's not even noticeable.

flynn lives !

Well, it's the original 3D marquee, done in a special material, which is of course not possible to 'catch it right' on 2D pictures  ;)

Can't wait to see all of you trying that beast one day in the Nuno's Lair and see how great it looks and plays!  8)

The famous 3D marquee :



Of course I have to picture these two cabinets together!  :P  :arrow:











See the 'glowing' difference between the one on Tron (original joystick) and the DOT one (reproduction) :

The 'engine' is now powered by :

Ultimarc ArcadeVGA to display DOT in its native resolution/freq, full RGB via scart connector in a new TV (the one inside wasn't working anymore)
Hacked mouse to fit the original DOT spinner
Ipac2 for all the buttons
Automatic boot to game
