My bad feelings became reality, the back row of the games was under  a broken part of the roof, so the Wrestlewar and the Dig Dug was in terrible condition, backdoor totally destroyed, they also peeled off in my hands when I touched them.The Dig Dug's front side totally replaced, there were no original marquee, CPO, bezel, everything was ugly.
I took the pcb from the Dig Dug, Chase Hq and from the Quarterback, it was missing from Wrestlewar:

I took all the parts I could move from the Chase Hq and from the Double Dragon:

First we loaded Ully's Ikari Warriors:

Than came the Shinobi.I didn't plan to take this machine, but I took a closer look on it and I realized, that it's complete(only marquee replaced) and in good condition and I saw something of the original sideart under that ugly grey painting.

Then came the Vindicator 2, damn heavy Smiley

Ah, I almost forgot, we loaded the Outrun:

Then we started to Tetris with the Vindicators Grin

There was just a few cm-s missed, but I was unable to close the door

We had to place it under the Outrun:

Perfect Cheesy

The Van was full, I loaded the remaining parts


Ready to go.
On the way back we stopped at the seller's house for a bath and we had some cold drinks, we were like dead mans Grin
I phoned to my friend from the motorway and asked him to help me unload the cabs, cause we were totally out of energy.

The parts I could take:
Chase Hq's bezel, Steering wheel panel, monitor, complete set of the marquee.
Double Dragon marquee, monitor's paper artwork, control panel, pcb.
Dig Dug pcb and power supply.
Quarterback pcb and marquee and all of the metal parts of each marquee.

A deep breath before unloading Grin

They really need a bath Grin



I'm out of space indoors so I had to place the cabs to the grill terrace under the roof, behind the house


Today I cleaned the parts and took a look at the pcbs I removed from the cabs, they are all complete

holy ravioli Shocked Shocked Shocked! you guys worked your asses off - unfortunately it didn't pay off for the dig dug. sad to see a classic game like this "die" Cry what also made me almost cry was that poor cute hedgehog:



hope he finds another nice cosy place to sleep! i love hedgehogs Kiss Kiss Kiss

i'm incredibly thankful for rescuing that ikari warriors for me - i owe you one (or two or three Wink)! the cabinet seems to be in a steady state. of course the colors have faded and the cabinet will probably need to be stripped down to bares bones, but i'm sure it was well worth the resuce. have you had the chance to peek inside? is everything there? can't wait to start looking for parts!

once again, thx a lot for taking on this strenuous adventure and for sharing it with us. incredible that there's another warehouse still waiting for your arrival!!! this is arcade heaven Space Ace Space Ace Space Ace

all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!

Yeah Ully it was one of the hardest days phisically in my life. Grin
I have to drill the locks to take a look inside, but all of the cabs was locked was complete also, so I think we will have luck with this.I'm also corious about the Vindicator. Grin
About the hedgehog we also love them, I saved one last year with a broken leg and it comes back every evening with he's 2 mates have dinner in our back garden. Grin
I'm taking my driller and send U PM. Wink

The Shinobi cabinet is also a classic Taito Cabinet - i can see green underneath - so probably a Jungle Hunt/Jungle King cabinet! Possibly also Elevator Action
