Galaga Cabaret Resto
« on: October 23, 2017, 10:21:27 AM »
It’s been a bit since I restored a game so I figured I’d post some pics. I picked up a decent Galaga Cabaret a week ago and decided to put my spin on it. The cabinet is solid but the vinyl was peeling. So I decided to laminate the cabinet with a thin gloss black vertical grade lamitate. I had some art made for it. Right now I’m just waiting on my CPO from this old game which. I have yet to plug it in and see if it works yet but it should be completed in week or so.

better than wood grain.  :)

restomods are pretty cool. HFK did an awesome one with a centipede, IIRC.

I finally plugged Galaga in tonight and had one bad rom. So took 5 minutes and it’s up and playing. All finished but I have to restore the control panel and some coin door/marquee bulbs.

Yes. It’s for sale. I have the Galaga enhancement kit coming and it’s about ready to go.
