why not get regular t mold and trim off the spine, would that work?
 Space Ace

Yeps, I could be an option, but because the original t mold is very narrow, I think using a piece of Atari vinyl (same as the one on Dragon's Lair cab') would be a good solution to try first. I just have to found back the roll in the 'mess' of my attic  oppps Wink

That monitor wouldn't happen to be a Hantarex would it? I hear people don't like them much...

Yes, it's an Hantarex, like the ones on most European cabinet.

What do you do with the old monitors? If you are trashing them, I could use some bits and pieces (like the white knobs from the pots)...

Well, I keep most of the monitor boards inside boxes because like you say, they contain some working parts that can be useful one day , but I also trash some of them (the worst ones)  confused

OK, it's time to fix the new TV.

Brand new... this CRT will only display one game : PLEIADS  Cool Kiss



In order to protect the board, I've to fix a small wood plank... to avoid a contact between the board and the metal monitor frame :



Let's transfer all the stuff  arrow



Operation ... successful  Kiss



On location  arrow





Did I already say this ? I LOVE RGB Kiss Kiss Kiss  arrow

Yes, 'Secto'  Kiss I buy most of electronic parts over there. The guy sitting on the back is very nice (I don't remember his name  oppps). He knows what I'm doing with the electronic parts  Grin ... and I already ask him to show me the best way to unsolder at chip on a Galaxian board  Cheesy You can talk him about arcade game  Grin

An other thing to repair ... the coin door  Twisted  arrow



As you can see, the fixation between the metal frame and the door is partially broken  arrow



It's a typical Midway coin door, but this one has some little differences (I'll show you in pictures l8ter).

Let's remove it.

...you should read my belgian Wink

I'm sure read you 'belgian' should be funny  Cheesy 'coz... that language doesn't exist  Wink In Belgium we speak French or Flemish or German
 

Here's the broken coin door  arrow



It's a typical Midway coin door except... the fixation. On this one there is no screw?!. The door is soldered to the metal frame  arrow



- the green arrow shows where it has been soldered (the fixation is ok here)

- the red arrows shows where it's now broken.

I won't be able to fix that, so I'll use an other standard Midway coin door + frame, exactly the same than this one ... and of course I want to use the *dedicated* Midway/Irecsa logo metal plate.

Here's the common method for removing the rivets on it  arrow



Done  arrow

A last picture where you can see the broken frame of the coin door  arrow



Because I cannot repair it, I'll use an other frame+coin door I have :



It is 100% similar but ... full of rust  Twisted  arrow



Ok, it won't be a problem but it just add more work  confused Ok, let's start with the 'frame'   arrow





The rust has to be fully removed  arrow



I'm using a Dremel to access some area, like this  arrow



Like new  Kiss  arrow
