Welp, now that I see no sunlight, time for a project I guess? BAYWATCH: prepare to get shopped!
|some of the many replacement bits going in to the machine!|
Between parts and LEDs, almost $400 will be put in to it. And that doesn't even include a DMD swap.
I had a bit of time tonight so decided to work on the apron area.
On the right hand side I could find little pockets of dirt that had obviously been cultivating since 1995.
To get the hard-to-reach areas, I find a utility tooth brush works great. Then get a clothe in there to wipe up the dirty Novus 2 froth.
I then spent some time with a bottle of Goo-gone and a razor blade to get the old tape off of the apron metal.
And finally, I got to replace my first plastic! This busted right inlane plastic is the most noticeable of them all. I added 1" lexan washers to both sides as well, so here is to hoping that extends their lifespan.
|note the giant chunk missing|
|ahhhh all fresh and spunky and protected!|
