egret 29 restore

Post by nestafari » October 5th, 2014, 1:59 am

Hello world,

My other topic have been moved in market place.

I start a new one over the whole restore of my cab here.

Many advices needed.

How do I remove the yellow of the plastic? I ve to sand and paint it?
What is the best product? Spray or paint ?

A part of the plastic is broken, how do I fix it.

There is rust on the metal. How do I clean it?

There is a bump at the bottom, how do I fix it?

How do I fix the scratches on the metal?

Don't you think it could be a good idea to repaint the plastic parts in another color? Any example or suggestions?

What are those 3 buttons at the bottom?

How can I replace the missing doors? Wood plexi sub woofer?

Thanks for your time ;)

Here is a pic of my woody almost done.

Hello, I he heard that the metal part was painted with a special paint and I will have to sand it totally before paint it. Is there any example of the job on this forum? If I just want to add a bit of paint on the scratches what s the best way? Thanx

Nice going on an awesome cabinet!

Can you give an update on the steps that you still need to take? I might have some pointers if needed.

If you ever decide to sell or trade the E29, let me know ;)

Hi everyone,

Step by step i keep going on the restore.

Jason is gonna make a CP.

I need a scan of the little plate above the joystick with the coin entry and P1 P2 button.

If anyone can help.

About the TV,the chassis is Huge, i ve found an old Nanao chassis in my cab. Will it work on my tv Or how can i fix this huge TV chassis into the cab?

I think the is a composite entry on the TV chassis can i plug in HDMI into my computer?

What is the best way to have a crisp picture?

Thank you

Looking great so far. I think S Video gives you the best picture. At least it did for me.

The 'best way' to use/connect the TV

- Get a scart cable, and hack it up. Pull out the R/G/B, GND and CSYNC lines.
- Use something like a JPAC and ArcadeVGA to get authentic arcade resolutions from your PC output into the arcadeVGA card.
- Wire up the RGB/GND/CSYNC to the female jamma connector/original rgb/c/s cables from the Egret.

You may need some +5V construction to force the scart connection is used on power up.

TV Chassis are quite big, i have no idea how to mount the chassis in this cabinet.. Usually, to deal with the rotate mechanism, on Egret the chassis sits 'below' the tube on a small holder.

My TV is too large to enter into the cab.

Did you ever have this kind of issue?

Trinitron "pure flat" tubes are bigger than regular tubes, get a regular TV instead.

Hi, can you explain how it is too big? It is difficult to see as the picture is very dark.
