I have done 3 of my own, and used a scalpel to VERY CAREFULLY cut into some of the foam from the inside making sure not to catch the artwork on the front, and then use a hairdryer to soften the old glue whilst slowly, and carefully prying them apart with a ...

Re: Astro City Yellow Marquee and metal parts

Those metal parts certainly look good. Regarding the marquee not sure if I can accept that kind of colour difference :mad: . Sorry man, you´ve learned it the hard way. Never ever use acetone to clean any plastics or paint (unless you want to remove it). Take an old jewelcase (polycarbonate I think)...

Re: CP frame, stains and scratches.

MAgic eraser improves it, but not to a decent point. I am using kraft polishing compound now, but will need to figure out how to recover the shine.

Re: Blast City Bulb Help and Replacement

Tubes are normal tubes, you just need to measure them. I bought one yesterday for a Swing, nothing special about it.

At first I thought a dead battery, but this board has no battery. Any idea what can be causing this image?

Re: List of Japanese Control Boxes / Superguns - Info & photos

Has anyone replaced the Kic Control Box PSU? It came with the stock 110V and don´t want to be carrying a transformer for this thing, but don´t know which PSU could I use for it.

CP frame, stains and scratches.

Continuing with my Blast restoration, I am trying to clean the CP plastic surrounding while I wait for the screw removal kit. I have tried with acetone and T-cut white but no real difference except for the inner stains. Current condition: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4433/36253188840_76208fcaf1.jp...

Re: Konami boards audio?

This is simple DAC, basically converts the digital part of the Audio circuit to the Analogue part. If you have a logic probe, you can see if you have an healthy signal pulsing in the inputs and you should hear a bip (if your probe has sound) on the output in rhythm with actual game music.
