Fixing Broken Connectors



I couldn't work on the bowler while it was lying on the floor.  If the scoreboard is stood up by itself it has a tendency to fall over.  The best thing I could do was put it together.  This game is VERY heavy!  I would guess that the scoreboard is about 200 pounds and the deck is around 80 pounds.  I stood the scoreboard up on my own and just about broke my back!  It took 5 minutes for me to figure out how to get under it. 

I also picked the deck up by myself, rested it on a shoulder and bolted the legs in one at a time.  Take my advice on this and get some help if you need to work on one of these!

I have to admit that I finally went for some help in putting the deck up into the scoreboard.  I just couldn't lift the deck without canting it.  The deck fit like a glove and with a little pushing and shoving I got the connectors through the small holes provided.

This is what it looks like assembled.  Quite ugly but somehow appealing as well???

This picture shows the side art which I finally figured out is paintings of airplanes.  No wonder the scoreboard has an airport motif on it.
