Why can't you use a jamma extension?
it’s not that I can’t use it, it’s more that the cable is really short with no give, and I feel like I’m tugging on it too much when switching boards. Something I do a lot of, especially when streaming.Why can't you use a jamma extension?
I just googled the highest resolution images I could find and copied them into photoshop and prepped them for printing (adjusted levels and contrast, saved out as pdf’s since Staples likes that file format).Where did you source your flyer artwork for the marquee? I am thinking of having some printed out.
mike’s right. My apologies, I should have elaborated more. My problem with getting the convergence dialled-in was mainly I couldn’t get a strong enough beam out of the red gun without cranking up the gain to a high output. This made it make the red gun shift slightly causing me to unable to focus the beam properly. After the rejuv the red was bright and more focused so I was able to pinpoint the position between as well as tweak with the focus pot on the flyback to really get it sharp.
you can probably use that microfibre and it should be safe to clean with.Nice job. One question I restaured my new net city with new paint. So how to clean it? I saw this microfiber is it good? What's product cleaner use?
Glorious indeed! The Aero never really caught my eye but after seeing yours all done up I gotta say its been really growing on me!!we’re at 99%!
I re-crimped a new and updated 1-player control panel harness with nicer QD’s and a joystick JST connector used on most modern joysticks now.
Ended up Receiving an @alberto1225 repro panel, and I gotta say, this is the highest quality repro you’re going to find out there right now.
The Sega Logo and silver lines are reflective!!
Incredible quality. The bottom is also very clean and reflective, plus the mounts are properly placed and gives you a lot of versatility in different mounting plates you can use. I highly recommend alberto’s panels!
I applied the surround overlay using my vinyl art technique when I restore wood cabs. Really easy to go on:
I screwed up though. I should have painted the surround first to get the overlay to look brighter than the print. I didn’t realize the print was a bit translucent, so it took on a darker tone when it was applied to the bare metal.
No matter, it doesn’t look too bad when on the cabinet.
added my choice of yellow controls with an oversized 45mm balltop (standard is 35mm dia)
Wiring is a hellava lot cleaner than before:
I wanted a subtle bling to it, so I added a led start button to p1 and wires 5v up to it to power on.
AND that’s about it!
all that’s left is to get some wheels that are missing for the back of this thing, but I’d say this restoration is pretty much complete for now!
thanks to all that followed along. This is a glorious cabinet now.
I am about to dive in on my restore. New year resolution Milo, get’r’done!Wow this thread was such a fun read. Makes me want to give my Aero City some much needed TLC. I also got mine from SoCal and it was kind of a junk pile when I picked it up. It's still kind of a pile, but it's at least a working pile right now.
