First this is a LONG time restoration i have limited spare time and at the end this will be a NEW game so ake it easy ;)

I don't have pics before I have started the restoration, 1 year ago, but the only thing I have done in this year is pull out every thing  from the cab!!!!! So you now undestand what i mean for SLOW restoration!!!!

Hi, Any

           Nice dedi Space ace, It looks like its not in to bad of shape. How did you get it to Italy? I am now looking to purchase a Sidam Dragons lair or Space ace, I am just not sure how to get it back to the states once I find it, if I find it. You wouldn't know of any for sale do you?

          I have just finished my restoration of my dedi space ace a couple of months ago.

          I am now working on the restoration of my Cliff hanger, its all original, it needs some paint. I will post pictures soon.(http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/674/a5ht0.jpg)

Bruno you are welcome here, just let me know when ;)

Mike, I've seen your SA and B-day cake over d-l-p ;)

This game was imported in Italy with around other 10 games (DL and SA only all used shipped via AIR)  in 1983/1984 by a friend.
He sold this game @ around 2300USD (acual USD) when Atari and Sidam game cost aroud 2700-2900USD. Keep in that Pioneer LDP are WAY better then Philips ones.

I know another Dedi SA whit 5/6 LD-V1000 is located near me in a warehouse, but my contact wont share WHERE is it located (it's in a 50 miles range...  :evil:  :evil:  :evil:  :evil:  :evil: )
(Bruno this place is NEAR Rimini, as I know You know Rimini too ;) )

As for Sidam game the only one i know  for sale is the one i'll pick up in the next weekend, it's a beauty Space Ace.


Mike btw how much vinyl i'll need to restore the whole cab?
and where have you found the sideart?
 thanks

Hi, Any

           I am not sure exactly how much vinyl I used, I had a bunch and used what I needed. congrats on the Sidam cab, I have been wanting to add one to my collection for some time now. Please keep me posted I would love to see pictures, If you hear of any other for sale please let me know. Do you know of a good shipping company I could use once I find one.  :)

Talk to you soon
Mike

Got it... Pics asap.
It has some cab problem like all Sidam ones, i just need to clean it, test the power suply, the monitor, the pcb and fix a Philips player EASY ;)

I'll put SA next to it as it seem (at the end) a quick job, I HOPE, the problem will be finding  a good disc :(
