Re: Chuddy machine

Wow badpenny, that's a fantastic result. Look forward to hearing a lot more about the process and the new swear words.

Re: Sega Monaco restoration

Thank you for the photo. Do you have any close up pictures of the mounting position inside the case? Also the mounting of the trip lever on the mechanism. (I think this is mounted near the back of the mech., but I'm not sure exactly what it is secured to).

In this kit 3 strips can be connected with brightness adjustable from on/off switch. The cost was aroun...

Re: Sega Progressive Star Missing Meter and Linkages

Thanks treefrog and chris rideout for the advice - it's very helpful. Now I need to find a meter unit and a linkage or spring to connect it to the Shefras as suggested.

Re: Coin Slot scans

These are great, I had not heard of the new "Vega" case by Watsonian. A quick search shows Watsonian is a classic motorcycle side car manufacturer whose factory was located in Albion Road Birmingham. I wonder if this was another UK manufacturer of Sega Lite Up clones or were they assembler...
