  1. Honda tried to do that in CA. The road crew fucked it up. Then it got moved cause of noise complaints. When they redid it elsewhere they fucked it up. Again. The exact same way. https://jalopnik.com/heres-how-hondas-musical-road-in-california-was-done-wr-1819600262 (Also, I wonder if it’s a ploy to sell more suspension parts)
  2. Open cell foam, I agree. But closed cell foam can be wiped clean easily, and does not absorb.
  3. There’s honestly no real way to guarantee quality, even if you are doing it in person, but especially over the phone. I’ve had tire shops that looked dead as heck that I didn’t even want to bother with do 40+ a month.
  4. https://www.amazon.com/CRC-03040-Silicone-Lubricant-Weight/dp/B07MBJMPVS
  5. Nope, they are even softer and will bridge even worse. Plus, they will crush and jam.
  6. I have a separate line for buisiness and personal. Voice and text only, no data. Runs less than 20/mo. Turned on during the day, promptly gets put on a charger and silenced when I get home. Before that I used Google Voice (free) It’s not as easy to use but it worked when I was still small. The only business calls that I get on my personal is from suppliers and vendors. But those typically don’t spam me, and don’t call at odd hours.
  7. Depends heavily on state. Also, MYOB.
  8. Returning the old one (core) is mandatory if you don’t want to be charged a core charge. This is standard with rebuidable components in many different industries, especially vending and automotive. But I’m glad you got it working.
  9. Or just do a LED retrofit and not have to worry about it. Plus you can sell it to locations as a plus.
  10. Pretty well built. If it has the Beaver coin mech (it should) then not much to go wrong, really. Large parts like globes and fiberglass bodies and spiral tubes are expensive and sometimes hard to get (for the more obscure knockoffs) but I can find used machines all day long for under 100 so not a big deal if I have to scrap one for parts. If your gonna do bb then you will need a baffle (real easy to make, just do a forum search.) and some sort of filler for the center (so filling it up to a reasonable level doesn’t cost you a couple hundred bucks. Also may want to swap the mech out to .50 cents, but mechs are easy to come by on eBay or directly from Beaver.
  11. Unfortunately, there aren’t many parts available for Victors anymore. They’ve been out of business for many, many years now, and so new parts are unobtanium, so your only real option is used off eBay. The lock is the easiest to get. I never ran any Victors like that but judging by the lock hole I’m guessing it used a cam lock. A locksmith shout be able to get one with the right dimensions. As for the coin mech, Victor has been gone for so long that many of their mechs are for 25 cent vends (or even nickle or dime) because that was the max vend price people were willing to pay in that time period. You might find some 50 cent (2 quarter) mechs but you are very unlikely to find dollar coin or token mechs (I’m not even sure if they were ever even made). As for dollar bills, forget it. The only systems out there use an electronic bill acceptor in a box that mounts to a rack of bulk machines, with a solenoid or something to unlock the mechs after money is inserted and a selection is made. And those were very expensive and so never really took off, and were only really made for other machines. Plus, they weren’t really drop in retrofits.
  12. I would do a rack at a laundromat.
  13. GIII board should work. Here are the instructions from Royal https://www.royalvendors.com/12-gii-conversion-to-giii-evs-software-using-parts-currently-in-the-vender/
  14. Huh. I didn’t know that GIIs with the Chamelion front existed. In any case call Royal see if they have anything.
  15. Clean the trim well with soap and water, sand it with some 300 grit, and wipe with acetone. Then I like to use Self etching primer and rustoleum pro black on top. However, while this looks pretty good at the beginning, it will start to look dingy faster than new trim as the paint is still supceptible to mechanical damage (scrapes, gouges, chips, etc)
