Looks decent, nice work. How much a spray job like that cost?
Paid more than what I got quoted but I think it came out to be about $450 not including the parts from my other 2 cabs that I needed done that I never got around to.Looks decent, nice work. How much a spray job like that cost?

So update on the monitors and chassis.
When I purchased this I was told one of the two chassis were recapped, turns out neither were recapped. Shadowkn came over and helped me out with my working Super Neo and we set about testing everything to see what works and what needed work. One chassis worked but will definitely need a recap, the other one had a blown fuse and possible other problems. This may be the original chassis that NEgO was talking about.
Both tubes turn on and look good so I didn't end up getting a terrible deal for two nice looking tubes and one working chassis.
Now my next hurdle is to figure out what to do about this rust. Arcade restoration group seems to be split 50/50 on leaving it or doing something to it. Still need to paint a few parts and get a new control panel since this one is toasty. If anyone has a type 2 panel they got laying around let me know.

They're under that much pressure?! Impressive. I always wondered how the hell this steel wraparound actually held the tube.The most you want to possibly do for the rust is maybe a rust inhibitor. From what I read about those compression bands, they are under an incredible amount of pressure so don’t grind or sand. I picked up a couple of tubes from the trash while in Okinawa and they had the same rust. I just let it be and the tubes are still going strong. Besides, its not visible once in the cabinet.
Jesus what a labor of love. Doing the lords works here
