Looks fantastic so far!On the hunt for: Dinoking, Mushiking, Love & Berry, Egret 29, Grand Am Q25, Capcom New Concept 2, and Naomi guncabs.
Did you sandblast first?
What have the costs been so far?
That looks amazing. Do you have before pics?
Awesome...someone has been busy Please share details, I have to do the same as well as nickel plate/polish the bare metal pieces, and polish all the other screws/bits.
Is the original coating on the cabs a paint or a powdercoat? The original looks like a paint just because of how smooth it looks, with powdercoat process I have notice that most times you dont get a super smooth finish/look.
Can the tube be unmounted in one shot without removing it from the rotate mechanism/plywood?
It’s much easier to pull the tube and ply in one go.
Seriously nice! My E3 will have to make do with a bit of a wipe down in comparison for now...I'll be very interested to see how you get on with the front plastics / fibre parts alsoWanted: - PGM Cave conversions, Dino King / Mushiking / Love n Berry coin box, coin chute, back door. Time machine.
- yes it was sandblasted before.
- the original is paint and not powdercoat so that made it cheaper to sandblast. This shop powder coat is DA BOMB and super nice and smooth.
- Cost is irrelevant but worth every penny. I think they were happy to have a fun project to do instead of pipes!
- strip / before pictures are HERE
- The wood/rotating/tube is 4 screws and it all comes out. Piece of cake.
- I found the nickel plate shop .. have to bring stuff there.
- Yes it's all because of Roger's post on Arcade Otaku and that damn video with daifukkatsu music!+++

Can you give me a roundabout cost you paid for the blast and coat? I want some ammo to use for negotiating doing the same for mine?
How did you remove the serial plate without damaging it? I removed the screws but it's still stuck up there good.
Did you try to save any original decals or are you going full repro?
Yours looks much better on the outside than mine. Yeah you have more spray paint than I did but mine also has huge gashes on the sides including through the side art down to the metal.
Mine was filthy inside but no mold on the wood. Just heavy dirt on everything.

Serial plate : Heatgun and heat the shit out of it. use a paint striper to SLOWLY get under and you're done.
sent you pms for price.+++
That was my suspicion. Thanks a lot, bro.
Nothing better than playing on a shiny clean cab
