Time to replace bridge rectifier, on the power brick. Lots of heat, and brittle cables.

Rectifier rusting and damaged case. For the sake of £2, it was replaced.






New rectifier fitted, and fresh new wire and crimps to finish off.

Both AR2 boards removed, cleaned and inspected. These boards are in mint condition!

The only visual damage I can see, are both R29 resistors burnt out, but will replace and upgrade to 1/2 watt versions.

Will also replace both 2N3055 transistors as well.

Underside of pedal assembly..My favourite rust!

Although the 3 springs are not broken, I am not putting them back in my cab.

I am going to a spring manufacturer on wednesday, to see If they can match them up, if not have them made.

Will get all metal work, blasted and powder coated. Keep em' peeled...

I think I've got 2 or 3 complete pedals somewhere, you're welcome to them for the springs if they are intact.

That monitor looks super clean - nice work. What did you clean it with?

Progress has been slow due to lack of funds. I wasn't happy with the finish on the coin doors when I bought, so I took all metal work to the powder coaters, for stripping and re finishing.

I always have coin doors finished in black gloss leatherette. It's looks great and is hard wearing. Unfortunately the pedal box metalwork was badly rusted, and the company I used, did say to me, the pitting would still show through.

I had it done in the original matt black, and it looks 10 times better than it did, but the pitting lets it done. Annoyingly the underneath which isn't on show, looks like nos! Typical. I haven't fitted the pedal box back properly, as going to get the pedal chrome plated if possible.

Looks in great condition, where did you source the parts, rectifier, transistors etc..I take it these are readily available in the UK? Will have to checkout the schematics and see what I need. I have 1 burnt r29 resistor, the other looks fine but may aswell replace, you upgraded yours I see.

Got all the parts on ebay. If you need the links, I'll dig them out.

Progress has been slow on this, due to financial issues, but hopefully will be getting this working, fairly soon. Chassis sent off to grant, and just received back today. Tested with my working thunder blade pcb, and all looks ok.

I need to order a ptc, as issue with degauss when plugged in, but ok for now.

Getting there daz!

Love the side art on pp2, nearly there now. I've brought new transistors for my power supply but yet to fit them. I think my power supply fried my ram on my board, as when I checked it when I got it, it was throwing out nearly 5.5v. I'll take my pedal assembly out next year and refurb it, in the mean time I'm just going to enjoy using it. Boards off to RC soon?
