[WANTED - UK] Blast City restore for hire/trade

I acquired a Blast City from RKLOK earlier on this year which was quite dirty, that I wanted to strip down, clean, fill small gelcoat cracks (underneath control panel), repaint, fix convergence issues etc but I have been just too busy to knuckle down with it; that and it I am forced to learn as I go...

WTB: Blast City CP hinge (repro or NOS)

Hello all,

I am looking for a replacement hinge for my Blast City control panel, it was pretty badly rusted when mine arrived and any attempts to remove any corrosion kept failing or not adequate. If anyone knows of any stainless steel reproduction hinges, that would be more preferred

Blast City PSU recap necessary?

I powered on my Blast City for the first time tonight using a Sega NAOMI and noticed that the voltage reading on my JAMMA adaptor is ~4.7, sometimes dropping to 4.6 during game play. I am slowly dismantling the cab to give it a good clean/repaint where necessary so I figured I could do the same for ...

Re: Blast City Crack Repair

Might need to wet sand...

Re: Blast City Crack Repair

Yeah ok, hopefully it won't need it and it's just flexing over the years that caused cracks on the gel coat side only. If it's just the gel coat, I will burr out the cracks and use this RAL 9002 gel coat repair kit: https://www.ecfibreglasssupplies.co.uk/product/gelcoat-repair-kit-63-grey-white-ral-...

Re: Blast City Crack Repair

:lol: When I get the chance to properly test the entire cab with a Sega Naomi I recently purchased, I will inspect the inside of the cab to see if it's just the gel coat that is cracked. If so, I might just burr out the crackcs with a dremel and use a gel coat patch repair kit typically bought for b...

Blast City Crack Repair

https://i.imgur.com/CXf3XLj.jpg https://i.imgur.com/P8QopiR.jpg I recently received my first candy and there are visible cracks underneath the control panel. I will drill the ends of each crack with a small drill bit to prevent it from worsening. I am thinking of routing out the cracks with a small...

Re: Introduce yourself here!

Thomas from UK here. Recently purchased a Blast City as my first cabinet and have been getting my hands dirty. Hopefully over the summer I will have a clean cabinet brought back to life :)
