This has been sitting in storage for
years taking a back seat to a lot of other projects...it's time has
Not easy to see here but besides mounting the pedal to the door there
are a few other obvious problems to be corrected with the cabinet.
The left front foot was ripped off the bottom. The 25amp low voltage
fuse was jumped out on the power supply chassis.
This cabinet was equipped with a fan, apparently all of them were not,
the mounting holes visible. The rear cabinet power switch was removed .
There was also a crack in the frame above the coin door.
Note: the original 2 bolts on the lower right, this is the area the
foot pedal was suppose to be mounted by using a template supplied
adding 3 holes.
However, on this cabinet there is a factory 1 inch hole on the bottom
under those bolts. It appears they made a change in the foot pedal
This is the altered front cabinet door.
What the hole in the door edge was for? unknown.
The door lock for this door was intact at the top.
Here it begins
Here the side art is test fit to the
cabinet for installation.
Note: the original art though not shown was full length. I had no idea
there were different versions of side art used.
This version was purchased years ago anticipating it's future
installation .. a surprise when opened , though different, I went ahead
and used it.
It looks fine and my guess is that later versions of the system 1
cabinet used this.
Rubber Wheels have been installed for easy movement and protection of
the hardwood floor it's going to call home.
All material in the cabinet was removed with the exception of the
marquee (for now).
Epoxy filler was used to fill a hole drilled in the front used to
secure the lock box.
This area will be recovered, along with the repaired front door.
The Road Blaster CP removed for future restoration.
A Marble Madness,CP and marquee will be installed initially.
Here surface imperfections are filled
before art installation. The filler beyond the hole is removed as the
I used Wellwood filler but added the addition of wood hardener to the
surface using an artist brush.
This photo is included to show there are
variations of the cabinet.
This version uses 5 1/4" diagonal speakers. There are versions
with smaller speakers.
The correct speakers are on order.
For some reason the Road Blaster kit
installation in this cabinet included putting the pedal on the door
instead of on the right lower cabinet. The installation instructions
clearly want it on the cabinet.
However only 2 holes were provided on the front filled with bolts. The
install requires 5 holes.
The one in the center is suppose to be 1" across to allow the pedal
to pass through. (they cut and spliced the wire)
This cabinet had what appears to be a factory 1 inch hole on the right
These holes will all be filled with epoxy wood filled and then new
black vinyl over it.
I intend to just paint the back side.
the new side art has been installed, along with the front door repaired.
Because the cabinet is on angle it looks like the gap to the edge on
the art is larger than it is, it's close to 1/4"
Also the coin door was repaired and repainted and new locks installed.
All things mention above were done.
It is fitted with a newly recovered marble madness CP along with new T
The speaker grill was stripped and repainted, though not initially
noticeable there was some rust
starting under the paint in areas. As this is being written parts are
on order to rebuild the 2 trackball assy's.
