Arcade Lifestyle / The last road trip
« on: July 02, 2015, 11:48:20 AM »
This road trip is the last road trip that make an end to a story of almost 1 year .

We went back with the guys from the association to the warehouses and bad news :twisted: someone broke into it and stole only the dedicated cab .

We were as pissed as the operator as they broke also the wooden door and his warehouse will need a serious repair .

I was really disapointed and shocked to see that some collectors can be like this .

So we had to improvised as we already have made 500 km with a 20m3 truck .

So we decided to take the space tactics that was in the basement of the house .

it was really difficult to extract it since it is heavy and the basement as a step of about 70 cm .
The other problem was the fact that the hole in the wall was smaller than the cab width except on the upper area .
So we had to lift the cab horizontally and above our head to make it passed trhough the wall .

As they were here nothing interessant we left for an other warehouse . It start to be hot as it is 14:00.

We will have to go through this to extract the cab yeah !!

sorry if I do not took as much pictures as I wanted but moving in this place is a pain in the ass as you may understand .

there we loaded some generic cocktail tables and 2 valadon automation  cabinet .

For the one that may ask themself what is Valadon automation ; they made this game .

We also loaded an enduro racer in bad shape and an Atari championship  

We took also for the end a Taito Crown periscope . This one is damm Heavy .

Yesterday I started to clean the cabs as they were really dirty .

this cab look really cool but I did not found much about it on the internet .

a nice video of it  working

that's all folks

Arcade Lifestyle / Finnaly I started to wip our galaxian.

hi guys .

Sorry for being a bit inactiv lately but I am looking for a new job and it took me a lot of my time and energy . With the pals from the association we also have finished the extension of the warehouse and now we have enough place to work properly .

It was also fthe occasion for me to bring the cab from oldschool and Spectroman to the warehouse .

As I took 1 week holydays I decided to start to work on our galaxian .

the cab need some serious cleaning ;D

a picture to compare .

as the cpo is rusted I will have to polish it and make some paint job . First I had to get  rid of the former overlay using a hair dryer

lets get rid of that rust .

I will need your advices later on how to restore the 2 way joystick .

that's all for now as I had to go to a Road trip .  stay tuned ;D

Arcade Lifestyle / [RT] For a DE Cocktail

hi guys !

Sorry for not being really active lately but with the extend of the warehouse and some familly issue I do not have much time .

Yesterday I was in road trip and it was not really planned .

I had to go to what we call in france " le Charolais" .

It is about 1 hour far from my place but I would that it is the middle of nowhere since it is only famous for cheese

and Beef  :-*

I did not took much picture of the road since there, there is only  cows ;D

Loading as to go fast since I was in front of the City hall and it is a 1 way road

Remarks I speeded up but did not see anyone .

look how great is that combi. Table fit perfectly ;D 

First time I see one so I hurry up to open it to see how it is made.

1 Thing that i found nice is the fact that there is a small light bulb to illuminate the instruction sheet

In the cashbox I found this

perhaps it may explain why the seller said that it was not working . Key is not at the right place .

During that time I get a call from a mate to say that he was to a flee market and found this for me ;D

It seems that it is my lucky day .

Now I just need a pair of 2 extra arms to help me lift it upstairs .

I do not know if it possible and if I will be able to do it . it will try to make a system that plays all Deco System .

Arcade Lifestyle / ostrich under the snow .
« on: February 25, 2015, 12:59:38 PM »
Hi guys Long time I did not post a road trip . This weekend I was in the alpes to see my family . It was also the occasion to make a road trip for a friend that live in south of france .

So in  this road trip i made about 1000 km with a lot of traffic jam under the snow and some crazy road in the mountain.

This time my RT mate will be my wife and it is her first time . She did not knew what she was getting too and for sure she will remember it .  ;D

Itinerary is
chalon sur saone -> Cluses to see my grand parents
Cluses -> Bourg st maurice to get some spare part for a  GORF.

The itinary on the map look weird as I got some issue with the snow on the road . Some road in the mountain were blocked and I had to change my way . 

After 3 hours and a half of drive instead of 2 I arrived at Bourg st Maurice to get the gorf's parts.

As i was 90 minutes late I did not took many pictures.

Now lets get back to Albertville to pick up a cab this time

We load the cab in the car and 5 minutes later we are on the road again as I promised to my wife that we will go skiiing . (waf point +1 )  :spaceace:

The beast is pretty heavy and I will have to unload it as my grandparents place since the road is difficult with the snow .

My grand parents saw the cab and were desperate (face palm time ) .

1 hours later we are in the mountain for this view .

After all that job I need some rest and deserve a nice meal. 

The next day I have to load  the cab in the trunk again but alone . Damit this cab is damm heavy for an upright .

As you see we had to play tetris a little bit to fit eerything in it . 

Back at home I put the cab between the kitchen and the WC as I do not have (yet) anymore place free ;D (waf - 1 )

likely for me I will deliver the cab in Avignon (south of france ) next weekend . (Waf +1) .

Everything started by an arcade session at calybre's place  .

In the morning we make some sega rally race in forest

When we arrive the cab is already outside .

At the moment it is the murphy's law but in the good way . Rt almost every week . So as i can not teleport my self I subcontracted a rt to spectroman .

Meanwhile at 800 km we load  .........................................

moment "spectropose"

then we ear : " it will never fit in your combi "

no way christine as seen worse


A midway space invader fit into an octavia combi without any trouble .

After 4 hours drive we unloaded th cab into the warehouse

Meanwhile in  Marseille :)

We will have to wait to the next arcade show to get the bandido back as it is now in spectroman warehouse but it was some nice catch during that halloween weekend .

More Rt to come next week . Yes i already start teasing about it . My back hurts with all those road trip but I do not care ;D . I can rest when i will be old .

Hi guys,

I was contacted yesterday by a guy that live near my place .
He has in his basement a cabinet called spin out

I have no interest in it so I thought that perhaps someone here may be interrested .

here are the pics .

I have no clue if it works or not since there is no electricity in his basement .

If you are interested i can take care about the logistics and stock it in our warehouse till you come or carrier come .

see you

Arcade Lifestyle / RT for some pinball (2nd Exploration)
« on: August 31, 2014, 01:07:23 PM »
Yesterday we were again in Road trip .
Since 2 weeks we are almost only movign cab and pinball to one warehouse to another .

6:00 AM wake up . Dammit even for work i do not do that ;D
8:30 we arrived at Kinou89 place and jump in the truck.

this time we go again to an unknow place . we know only that there is about 10 pinball in an attic

we were quiet surprise when we arrived there and saw that  ???

We were thinking that it was going to be an easy job . Just some stairs and job will be done but no  ;D

ahhhhhhh! here are the Pins

It is difficult to walk there . I threw away an iron and an ironing board to acces to an iron board .
I put the iron board on the floor in order to close the big hole we have on the floor .
we start to throw stuff away to make our way .
Issue is that in order to extract the pins we have to create place .  
we move a jukebox and push a little bit the gorf.

a blue shark ! great that one is easy to access I know someone that will be happy ;D

nicogéo inspect it

We get Pins out

It was a pain in the ass to move those pins with 3 people only so no picts guys . Stairs were rotten so we make it fast to avoid to get all on the head .

the pins out we start urbex mode :D

How want a chocolate ?

Some Fruits for the dessert ?

the loading

Kinou89 start to yell at us : " Kids get back here we have to go "

We drive back to kinou's place as here wife wait us for diner and made us a nice meal

We have some beer and we play his pinball and it is already 2 in the morning

Dammit i forgot to call my wife as we were to much excited by ours find . We have to drive back

3:30 we arrive at my place

Sometime I think that I'll better go to work to get some rest  :spaceace:

Arcade Lifestyle / Roadtrip of the 19/08 .
« on: August 18, 2014, 03:10:58 PM »
Hi folks ,

Just a topic to tease about our roadtrip from Tomorrow .

We go to a place where we never been and perhaps we will be injured or even lost some members but we will be brave and try to bring at least 20 cabs back .

With the "Burgundy Arcade patrol" we go to an old warehouse forgotten since the 90s . Owner told us to bring some helmets and gloves as the place is about to collapse .

It sound very risky but we have seen worth in the past .

to be continued

Nb: Not @ the same place as last RT .
