Cutting down some packing blankets, sewing on trim, and seating some grommets. A few matching hooks discreetly installed in the wall and this awkward staircase won’t need its drywall repaired again. Hopefully.

Now that I am on break I can finally start setting up my Vewlix (Merci encore Phil!).

Installed stuff on both sides of the "shelf". PC power supply, amp, cab power supply, and HDMI switcher/audio extractor underneath the shelf. PC, harddrives, Nintendo Switch cradle on the top side. Nice and compact. Xbox is on the bottom shelf. Wired the cab green and red button (service switches) to the mobo as PC power and reset. 3D printer came in handy. Printed the dual HD holder.

I love my escalera forklift attachment. I was able to spend hours working on the cab at eye height instead of crawling on the garage floor.

PC works great with Hyperspin and 16Tb of emulated goodness. Tired of playing with a wireless keyboard so.....

Next is the control panel. Need to remove all the cheap hardware and install some lit buttons, spinner, mag-stik plus' from ultimarc, ipac, PACLED64. I have Sinden light guns on order too. When it's all done it will come downstairs into the gameroom. Seeburg juke out though. No more room.

Well, I moved 19 backboxes in storage, and started reorganizing the basement.

Well, apart from setting up games to be able to play, I did replace the plug on 9 machines I have gotten over time. No ground prong.

It takes me 3 minutes to change it now. LOL. So, if you have a machine on which the plug has no ground prong, spend the 7 bucks and take a few minutes to change it.

Spent most of the weekend stripping, sanding and patching the Chicago Coin Bullseye cabinet. Used fibreglass resin to fill the hole made by the ball whacking a piece of plywood over the years. Almost ready to prime/paint. I scanned the artwork with the HP 4670 ScanJet, need to finish redrawing it so I can get laser-cut stencils ordered.

I was thinking, as a way of motivating those that need it, and to share stories... What did you do today? What fixes/upgrades/mods got accomplished?

(Reading PinGeorge's WB thread was the main idea behind this)


Today I added PinballPal flipper mylar protectors on my IJ. I also installed the Pinbits DMD polarized film cover for my IJ. No more glare over the lost plastic now. 8-)
I sold my IJ today. The game that was the first topic of this thread.
