Yeh it's only got the one PCIe slot but I notice it supports Hybrid Crossfire with the onboard graphics so you might be able to run the backglass and DMD off the onboard and the playfield off the card in the PCIe slot.

That'd probably work, I've heard of others doing the same sort of thing so worth a try for sure.

the Zaccaria STAR GOD cabinet, looks in ok condition, needs to have a few dings filled in, but side rails are good and i have a lockdown bar that fits it too

Image
the sega APOLLO 13 cabinet. looks a bit rough, will see how it handles a thorough belt sanding... some of the ply has delaminated (not sure how to fix that, im sure google will help)

You've got a good start there!

Soda should pipe up about the delaminating, I imagine that would be his area. Perhaps some PVA glue and clamps? Maybe even a new top layer of thin ply as well?

i think i will get away with some pva and clamps, or dremel the bits out and bog them up (its only small areas)

bottom needs replacing on the Apollo 13, but the zaccaria is solid.

Yeah, might as well live up to the pipe.. :P

I'd scrape the existing laminate off and overlay a fresh sheet. Contact adhesive is the best glue to use but bonds on contact (no clamps needed...:)....PVA is strong too but is a fucken mess for this application.) so make sure you have some dowells handy as a rest to get sheet in position, then pull out one by one. leave about 3mm overhang and file off after about 20 - 30 mins.

A little plastic putty to fill any uneven surfaces prior wouldn't hurt either.

The damage by the previous owners is unforgiveable... :?
