Nice! You should still be able to find parts for that machine, I would think. There are a lot of coin-op repair places near me that have warehouses full of that stuff.

My machines are a Williams Flash and a Data East Time Machine. Both machines are 98% functional, with the usual quirky days. Flash is a decent specimen from the late 70's. Time Machine is fun because as you earn multipliers, the machine progresses back through the decades with soundtrack to match, so that when it reaches the 1950's only electro-mechanical sounds are used. The 1980's disco soundtrack is a shock.

You should do that project. Seriously. PM me if you need any boards.

Not so long ago you could get $200 for a broken machine, and over a grand for a working one. Those monochrome vector displays weren't as prone to failure as the color ones. Every coin-op enthusiast should have one.

And a Battlezone right next to it.
