Title: RT Major Rock Hardy 3 hits combo !!
Post by: kroustibat on October 01, 2010, 06:52:44 PM
DISCLAIMER : by looking to the title , we don't have anything to do with Rock Buster's team. Even if i'd love to be part of, it's purely coincidental ;)

Recently, i spotted a Killer instinct 2 cab stated as unworking near namur (about 160km roundtrip).
So the RT started on a no rainy sunday (for belgium it's a miracle). My uncle kindly lent me his company truck ,

so in case you need new windows or blinds who's you gonna call ?? JEP Immo off course

For this RT , as usual,  my official wingman and photograph artist is Fr4nz

Rock busters HQ is near , in bruxelles (hope we didn't break a military secret) , but we're heading to namur

80km later, we arrived at the seller's house.

ADVISATORY : XXX RATED HOPA spotted , censored in order to keep this forum family friendly

going back home, and put the KI2 cab on location

So you'll tell, what the hell , it's only a 1 hit combo , you lied to us , i'm asking for a refund !... WROOONG !!
my winmang got 2 cabs in his garden house. As he doesn't have enought space to keep them and to
prevent them to be damaged with the humidity, he decided to donate them to my gameroom. You can come and play as often you wish !
thanks again mate !!

now we're heading to verviers (40 km) , throught my flat country

I arrived in front of fr4nz's house, it's great to have a huge garden in front of the house. But this time, we'll have
to carry 1 heavy cabs all the way long :s

Fr4nz already got the first cab out of his garden house. Doing the strong man pose  :spaceace: :spaceace:. But it was easy, it's a Zacarria cab  ;D
(http://www.pascalorama.info/brol/3hitscombo/08.JPG)

Now the turn of major Rock Hardy aka Xybots if you didn't get it ;) That's really another story, the door is really narrow and we needed to lay the cab
(http://www.pascalorama.info/brol/3hitscombo/09.JPG)

To complicate everything, we needed to cross over the house, as there's no other path to get the cab in front of the house. We did pretty well, without
dirtying the whole place and without smashing the doors.

let's check if this baby is working, the game starts with a bad rom message, colours are really faded but we could start a versus game on fr4nz'terrace
(http://www.pascalorama.info/brol/3hitscombo/13.JPG)

To get to the sidewalk and the road, we got a loooooooooooooong path.
(http://www.pascalorama.info/brol/3hitscombo/14.JPG)

Hopefully, we got a wood plank on wheels, that save our day and facilitate everything :)
(http://www.pascalorama.info/brol/3hitscombo/12.JPG)

cabs're loaded
(http://www.pascalorama.info/brol/3hitscombo/15.JPG)

to the Kroubi's gameroom ! this truck is really handy , love the automated door.  ;D ;D

xybot's back door
(http://www.pascalorama.info/brol/3hitscombo/18.JPG)

and the manuals are prestine
(http://www.pascalorama.info/brol/3hitscombo/19.JPG)

control panel is in great state, just need a good clean
(http://www.pascalorama.info/brol/3hitscombo/20.JPG)

The zacarria cab , got a laser battle marquee, never heard about it. But the cpo look like a vanguard one
(http://www.pascalorama.info/brol/3hitscombo/21.JPG)

it was a small RT , about 200km, only 2 provinces,  but for 3 cabs which is a good average  :pac: :pac:

Another huge thanks to fr4nz , nowx it's time to start restoration ;)

Kidding of course, I'm very happy that you can add a Zaccaria cabinet to your collection and you found the one with the most beautiful art! ;D
I love that marquee, if you change it to a Vanguard one day or ready for an exchange with a Quasar, don't hesitate to contact me! ;D ;D ;D

thanks Ully, i'm not a fan of killer instinct neither ( i way prefer MK1 or MK2) but i like midway cabs (wish to get a nba jam one). the ki cab is just because it's a dedicated cab and the cpo got 6 buttons , so it's a perfect candidate for mame (i know, i know it's bad ^^)
For xybots, it's mine now :)

Kroustibat we'd be really honoured to count you and Fr4nz as members of the Rockbusters team  ;) ;)
Excellent catch, especially the Xybots that could totally fit on the set of the tv show "cosmos 1999".
Super cool looking cab... and this zaccaria sideart is a musthave classic too.
Can't wait to read the detailed restoration diary!
congrats, congrats  ;D
