    Uo Poko Control Panel

    As mentioned on discord, I'd recommend some art changes to the CPO: I'd put the Cave and the Jaleco logos close to one another, rather than on opposite sides of the panel (That would drive me crazy). I'd make the Uo Poko logo bigger and more vertically centered in that spot. Then move the 1...

    Few updates on the finishing touches. I picked up a full set of N5000 locks and a repro MS9 remote board from @SnakeGrunger, thanks man! It's nice to have all the original locks, and be able to lock everything up. especially when you have kids. My current remote board was gnarly. corroded...

    Cat Paw Ball Top Reproductions

    These are so nice! Got mine today and did a quick comparison to the Lions3 repros. The Misteraddons version is definitely nicer. The colors are more vibrant, they feel closer to OEM too, especially the weight. The lions3 version feels slightly heavier, maybe because of the extra resin...

    In the monitor? I'm going to try another polishing pass later on. For now I'm just going to enjoy this cab being functional and looking sexy. ;)

    I like to run a crappy Pandora’s box for parties, especially for the kids who don’t care about real hardware. It’s easy to install, easy for them to navigate the selection menu, and they just want variety. After this party I’m going to rotate the monitor and have this cab more dedicated to...

    The eagle has landed! I gotta wait a week or so for the repro control panel from @alberto1225 , so I put the Astro one on there for now. But I'm calling this done! It's in the house, fully functioning, ready for our party tomorrow. Recap of the last few items: I populated the cab with all...

    Yeah I think I'm going to come back to this later on and see what I can do. It doesn't seem like there's a coating on this. As I was polishing it, I didn't see the coating come off at all. But I will read through Mike's post and see what I can do to this tube.

    There's really not much to it, and when you order the LED bulb there are instructions included. But there are 3 wires coming out of the power connector in the Windy's: GND (green), Neutral (white) and Hot (Black). Connect the GND to the metal of the light holder (which should already be...

    Took a look at the marquee lighting. Retrofitted a new LED bulb in replace of the power hungry florescent. I’ve replaced all my cab’s marquee bulbs with these. Cuts down on the heat quite a bit. It's especially vital for having all my cabs in one small room. These LED bulbs only need direct...

    Looks like the side-art is slightly lighter than the original control panel. But the side-art does match the marquee brightness, so I don't know if they're all supposed to match or if the CP is darker than the sides from the factory.

    Real quick post. The rest of the artwork has been installed. No problems getting the other side-art on. Everything lines up well. Repro Insert Coin decal and Instruction Space art as well! The Insert Coin decal has a metallic silver sheen to it. I can't recall if that was on the original...

    It's side-art time! This is the most nerve racking part for me whenever I do these restores. Monitor discharging? No problem. Damage repair? Easy. But vinyl art application, I’m on pins and needles. I got my favourite tool for it though. Plastic squeegee specifically made for art application...

    The bottom corners look like this: This is pretty good IMO. The sides of the monitor is a little separated, but I'm not too worried about that. I don't think I can get much better than this, and it's probably better than my other cab monitors! I spent a little more time on the overall...

    Convergence is so much easier when you have the proper yoke! Thanks for pointing that out, @Mukuro_W I spent about an hour getting the geometry and convergence looking as best I can. I'm happy with the way this is looking. I could easily spend another hour messing with it, but I think I'm...
