Hiya fellow crazy arcade phreaks!  Grin
Here is the last chapter of my Nintendo bulk buy, not much to tell, as i had the cab shipped here... but i hope the pictures will suffice.  Smiley

Temp stored at the company


The receipt.


Unwrapped the biggest crate first, but had a little peak at the corner first - though, the cabs was excellent wrapped! - as always!


Mustache man is not happy...


In ok condition...


First 2 cabs on the trailer.... DK3, itīs your turn...


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






"Arcades in mirror are closer than they appear!"


Arrived at The Shed


1st cab waiting to into The Shed


from outside...


2nd cab.....


3rd....


Inside the SMB, i found these manuals:


!!!!!!! - never seen a PM or MPM converted!


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.....


The picture on the monitor is actually quite good...




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....


The monitor is quite bad on this one, thereīs no picture in the left side of it, maby a cap kit can help here???




Last but not least, itīs DK3īs turn.....and once again - say the magic word....


The monitor is a bit dark, but iīm sure it can be ajusted...


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

Great, now you actually have a pretty nice Nintendo line-up,  Space Ace 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.  Smiley
