Did you change all your solenoids? Those drop targets look much better in the second pic.

No I cleaned them with Evaporust and made some new wraps. I kept all the solenoids, they were all good.

Not sure how you took what I sent you and turned it into that. Wall done friend.

Really thought about keeping this to try to do the same, but I knew I would never get around to it.

Glad she found a good home.

It was a pleasure dealing with you Ralph, smooth transaction and I want to thank you especially for making this dream come true.
Anytime you come around, I will be pleased to play a couple of games with you.

I might consider doing this for my F14.
How did you make the new wrappers? Is this just regular colored paper? Which glue worked best for you?
