Smelly Sega NAC cleanup, ozone gun?/cigarette burns/PSU

Post by TMallu »

Heres some **** picts of my NAC clean up. Cab is filthy/stinky as usual.

testing the cab in my cold storage room:

monitor removed:

cleaned parts:
Image

taking out wiring, psu, coinmech etc.
Image

washing the main body
Image

cab in, Trinitron out
Image

putting it all back
Image

and its working

..but it still stinks, mainly from inside.

Ok, here is my question: anyone ever used ozone gun/generator to get rid off cigaret smell from candy cab?

No, my advice we be just to wait it out. The smell will fade over time.

Over here, last pictures in that post, you can see how I got rid of the cigarette-marks:
http://forum.arcadeotaku.com/viewtopic. ... 20#p310117"

What I did was the following:
  • Trying to get of them with wet cloth
  • Trying to get of them with T-Cut
  • Seeing, that t-cut took away lots of the surrounding good area, with cigarette-mark still visible.
  • Asking Mr. Sandpaper for help
  • painting the area with good matching paint.
  • repeat last two steps several times.
now they are vanished.

Thanks ninn.

However, my strategy for now is just to cover them with movestrips and mini marquees :D
