LOL  :D

Don't worry about this 'washing' process  :o

In fact, that cab is full of wood with a special protection on it... Water doesn't go inside the wood... And I just use water few seconds, to remove all the soap  :roll:
Immediately, I dry the cab... There is no damage at all after that Nuno's Cleaning method  :P   :wink:

I can trade one Galaxian with you...  :roll:  :wink:   make me an offer  :P  8)

Talk to you soon... (I'm at Paris righ now  8) )

So where's the original Galaxian bezel ?
Could you scan it, I need a good scan to print a cop y for my Galaxian...

I've used the bezel for this cab :

http://www.dragonslairfans.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=135

That bezel is in good state but have few scratchs  on it, which it made not a perfect candidate for a scan / vecto  :?

I know the vector file of this bezel is not easy to found on the net...

Good luck for your project.

I have some steering wheels, but I believe they have an Atari logo in the center. I can take a picture.

It looks quite different.. I don't remember which games these are from, but the shape and look is different.
Sorry about the picture quality.

Water only applied on sides and kickplate. Cabinet has been cleaned & dried in the minute.  Nothing damaged...
How funny people can make their own story judging one pic.... but hey, it's called internet  :)

The only clever guy seems to be Michael Trier...
And Derek Gibbs seems to be the average American giving lessons to the whole world as to how it should be run.
Ah americans...

Lol - funniest thing I've seen for a while!

One did mention who you were though.

I bet some who replied live in Florida or similar, with rH about 90%...but are freaking out about a quick rinse and rub down.

I'd be tempted to reply that as the cab was built in Ireland (where it rains 364 days a year, the 1 day it doesn't they call it "summer"), that it's built to be waterproof.   :lol:
