The receipt.

Unwrapped the biggest crate first, but had a little peak at the corner first - though, the cabs was excellent wrapped! - as always!
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bulk3.jpg)

Mustache man is not happy...
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bulk4.jpg)

In ok condition...
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bulk5.jpg)

First 2 cabs on the trailer.... DK3, itīs your turn...
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bulk6.jpg)

All 3 cabs strapped down for their final ride...

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bulk16.jpg)

!!!!!!! - never seen a PM or MPM converted!
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bulk17.jpg)

Powered the SMB up first, first nothing happend... there was a high "ding" sound which was repeated but no picture.....
Luckily i had a spare SMB PCB, slapped it in and...... say the magic word.....
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bulk18.jpg)

The picture on the monitor is actually quite good...
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bulk19.jpg)

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bulk20.jpg)

The 2nd machine to be powered up was MB, at first nothing happen....
Found out that a fuse in the monitor pcb was blown, replaced it and... say the magic word....
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bulk21.jpg)

The monitor is quite bad on this one, thereīs no picture in the left side of it, maby a cap kit can help here???
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bulk22.jpg)

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bulk23.jpg)

Last but not least, itīs DK3īs turn.....and once again - say the magic word....
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bulk24.jpg)

The monitor is a bit dark, but iīm sure it can be ajusted...
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bulk25.jpg)

Well, thatīs it, The Shed is full! no more room for another arcade!...... - or maby there is...  ::)

Great, now you actually have a pretty nice Nintendo line-up,  :spaceace: there are not many collectors in europe who can say that.

Just this morning I thought that it would be nice to visit you sometime, but now I know one day I have to.  :)
