Ok,
First off, how does the PCB mount in a Williams Moon Patrol cabinet, I
have one I'm restoring, it has a slotted wood mount, and the PCB fits on
that nicely, but how is the PCB fastened to the cabinet? there is a
clear pinball post screwed into the side of the cabinet, does that have
someting to do with it?

Second thing, I've been stripping the usual black paint off the sides,
and the Moon Patrol artwork is in decent shape underneath, but what I've
noticed is in some spots the MP art work is coming off, and under that
is Dark Blue, what other Williams games shared this cabinet? I have a
Joust thats a repainted Robotron, could they have done the same with
Moon Patrol??

The PCB mounts with 2 somewhat square pieces of wood about 1 1/2 inch
thick. One for the front and one for the back. A screw in the center
holds them in place. I could give exact dimensions if needed.....

My MP has wood on the top and bottom of the PCB, with about 3 slots in
them. There was also a large wooden stop on the rear end, too.

The game could have also been a Bubbles or a Splat, both had dark blue
cabinets and came out around the same time as Moon Patrol.
