Right so progress so far (pics to follow)

Import machine from Dublin (thank you @magic with main cab already stripped and stenciled...
Strip playfield completely and send off to have the paint restored instead of fitting the provided overlay.

Build stock of new replacement parts for upper playfield :

Space Invaders Caps x 3
50 Point Caps x 4
All bodies for 7 bumpers.
Rubber kit
4 x Flipper Rebuild Kits
4 x new flipper bats
new CPR Plastics set
Full set of Drop targets
new set of 6 stationary targets
all new red star posts.
Leg protectors

So the only parts I want to get now are a new set of gunmetal grey legs.

The hardest part so far apart from taking hundreds of photos was the clear support plastics. They have metal cups that were fitted and flared to hold them. I have now removed them from the old badly yellowed plastics and fitted them to the new CPR ones.

Archer is a NSFW cartoon that i love, here is a little collection:

and this is their take on Kenny Loggins' Danger Zone, a recurring joke:

i can't wait for season 8 which comes out on 5th April and is set 60 years ago in some kind of film noir setup. should be fun.

You are entirely to blame for me being addicted to Archer.
