amazing work so far, bruno, honestly i thought you would have much more problems getting it back together. i can't wait when you flick the ON-switch for the first time. make sure to record this historic moment on tape or even better: MAKE IT A REAL-TIME LIVE EVENT!!!

Ok, because I really want to display the original 'Project Dragoon' marquee, but I don't want to let the 4 lamps 'naked' (without their cover), I'll do a Dragoon/Zolgear mix, see  :)  :arrow:



as for the marquee display: i can understand your tendency to display the original marquee, but this setup that you have right now looks totally lame - imho of course. it looks so unfinished - i would complete the setup if i were you!
all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!

By far one of the most amazing restorations I've ever seen.

I never saw or played this game in the arcades, so I'm just in awe.
I came here to do two things, play some games and drink some beer.  Looks like I'm out of beer...

Sorry to hear that. As a parent of 2 kids (4 year old and 16 month old) I understand. Children Tylenol is our best friend!  ;)

EPISODE 12: "A six eyes beast!"

Starring : Darth Nuno, Dad


The front 'inside corridor' at the entry is almost complete, just need to hide the right side ...



with the 'delorean style' piece of metal/alu/or whatever...  8)



See the instructions sheet, specific to the 'Zolgear' mission :



Same task on the left side... should I really hide theses cans?  ::)  :arrow:



Sure! And I decide to set the 'control panel for operator' on this side, the original location in fact.



Because yes, it's also possible to fix it on the other side (see the second picture of this post, and you'll see a plate instead of the control panel).

Yeah!  8)  :arrow:



And here we are, all the parts of the Theater structure are fixed! No missing parts, hell yeeeeeaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!  8)



Just cleaning few more parts...



...and checking the lightening... hey, a bulb is missing here, on the left side...



It's the same model than the one on the right side, still there, see  :arrow:



Of course, a 110V one  :ghost: ... what means the Japanese text on it? Could it be replaced by something else than this model?

Ok guys, now it's time to attack serious stuff! The projectors and the LD players!
Among that stuff, 2 from these 3 projectors should be working, and 3 on these 6 LD players too...  ::)
...but I'm not sure at all! Kinder surprise!  :?



Let's start to fix the projectors. See one of the two projector hanger :



They will be installed here :



First one 'on location' :



I'm testing first the fixation procedure, without the weight (36kg) of the projector...



Here's how to proceed :



Arg!!! I didn't read the manual carefully!  :? The projectors must be installed earlier in the assembling  :-\ So let's back go back to this (fortunately not to far)  :arrow:



Of course, because I'm in a hurry and want to do everything alone, I try to figure out now how I can lift the projectors alone...



But it's just too dangerous to do it all alone. So with the help -yeah once again & again- of my Dad, here we are!  :arrow:



After so many years of sleep, the six beast's eyes are upon me now, finally! But hey, still closed at the moment!  :P



The End

Belike
