Havent updated the blog in a while - been too busy playing on the arcade :)
The CPO came back from the printers and its fairly decent. Because its printed on vinyl there are one or two small creases which I need to fix but aside from that all the buttons are hooked in and the machine is very usable.
The replacement cold cathode from Amazon is much better and doesnt suffer the same overheating problems. Only remaining bits left are:
- new marquee
- box in the rear of the monitor (or replace with an LCD)
- clean up the side panel - one has a scratch which is quite visable
I'll grab some pics before too long...
