Absolutely fantastic!  I appreciate your attention to detail.  Very, very nice.

I have a couple of questions if you have time, and don't mind (of course):

1. What kind of sander did you use on the coin door?  I have a metal control panel that I'd like to restore, and wasn't sure how to "sand" it down, remove the paint, etc.

2. To follow up on that, what kind of primer and paint did you use on the coin door?  The black paint looks like it has texture.

3. To clean the bolts, etc for the coin door, what liquid did you use?  Did it remove all of the rust, etc?

I appreciate your time - and again, great job!

Thanks Steve for your compliments  Kiss Kiss

1. see the pic:



2. Normal primer for metal, and the black is normal 'black opaque spray paint'

3. Yes, it's a rust remove and it works great  Space Ace

So guys,

after 3 days of hard play I decided to change the buttons (Mikesarcade repro) with the original ones.

The repro have a bad response (too much pressure on the button)  Evil Undecided so it's time to clean the old and certainly better original buttons  Kiss Kiss:

buttons disassembled (some cigarettes burning one blue one but is not a problem):



bath:





reassembled:



in position .... works perfectly  Kiss Kiss  and after 28 years  Cool Grin

great response, even with a soft touch  Kiss



It's time to make a new personal record  Space Ace Space Ace
