Hey bruno did you ever think about the fact that all the things you take upstairs have to come down someday??? Or are planning to put the gameroom V3 on top of your house, let's say expanding the attic... lol.  ;)

Yes Jomm, I know  :oops: Each time I'm putting some parts in the Attic, I know I'm adding more work for l8ter, but I really need to have all the G parts at the same location : my house  :P ;D

I know it m8, just teasing you... lol  ;D.
I'm really looking forward to see that big game up and ready to play (I've seen it at Blankenberge so I know it's huge).
God must love crazy people, he made so many of them!!

 ;D

Well, some items won't go into the attic... that first pcb box (or stack ?) by example  :arrow:



...and other HUGE pieces too  :o  :arrow:



This is my 'workshop' room, where I've done most of the last renovations (Pac Man, Space Ace, Donkey Kong, Galaga by exemple)...

If I can't play Galaxian for the moment, at least I can see everyday some parts of it  :P It helps me to keep the motivation for this 'Lifetime' project  ::) 8) ;) ;D

It's time to get back to my home all the G parts left in the Sam's garage  ;D

I'm with Burt and we arrive behind the Sam's door... Knock knock  :arrow:



"Calm Down Sam"  :D He are here to clean your garage  ;)

Here's what we have to remove :



My car is big enough for only 1 item..



...let's say that box of boards (#2) ... now loaded  :arrow:



...20 minutes later... arriving at my home ...



...and like the other GT-6 parts... the 'stairs' level  :'( :-\ :evil:  :arrow:



Arriving on the 1st floor, inside my 'workshop'  :P :

...and 20 minutes later...back to Sam's garage in order to pick up the last box  :spaceace:



Opss.. I still have a Pole Position to restore on his garage by the way  :oops: :roll:

...and 20 minutes later... the last box enters my house  :P



The two laser disc players are already removed since the first day I got the Theater... still left the two sound amplifiers inside :



Of course, before the 'stairs' stage, we'll remove everything. But before that, few pictures BEFORE removing the wires  ::) ;)





Ok, it'll be more easy to lift like that  :spaceace: :arrow:



Burt in action  ;D  :arrow:



On the 1st floor...



...and this is it : The THREE boxes of G electronic are together  :P :-* :-* :-*



Now, let's plug everything...








...









...










...





Mhhhh maybe not  ::) :P ;D  :spaceace: :spaceace: :spaceace:

...another day... another trip... this time, I'll completely clean the Sam's garage  :P

Here's the last G³ parts there :



Let's remove the excrescences before the loading :



Gunner's Gate 1 loaded...



Gunner's Gate 2 too... Sam is happy  ;D







Ready for departure...



There parts are too big. I won't stock them at my place for the moment... so direction Freddy's & Mom's house  :P ::) ;D



Original 'Attack Of The Zolgear' sticker... but what is the number 50 ???



Behind the blue grille...a speaker... Bose  :-* :-* :-*  :arrow:



I'll left most of the biggest G³ parts until the extend to the Nuno v GameRoom  8)

   I've just found some video footage done during the first day of that crazy adventure. I know it's not the best film ever done with a cam' (very dark & blurry  :oops:), but I just want to share it with all the Galaxian³  fans here.

Check this out  :arrow:

LOL... each time I see him, I talk to him about this  ;D He promised to me that he will help to put all the parts together ... It's just a big 3D puzzle in fact  :D

Man-o-man, I have SO much respect for you and your helpers ! I'm already getting tired of just_looking_ at the pictures ;)

Bruno, doesn't your house have wooden floors ? Will it be able to support all that weight you put up there ?

Keep up the good work !!

Hey Bruno,

As always, I love reading your road trip stories - mostly because they're damn funny.

You have some great friends, and a most understanding wife - mine would not be this cool.  ;D

I've especially loved the two game room videos and progress stories, as well as your restorations.

I have just one question about the C3 theatre though - where are you going to put it eventually?

It is absolutely huge!!

Anyway, thanks for sharing, the stories and pics are just great!

Steve
I came here to do two things, play some games and drink some beer.  Looks like I'm out of beer...

Hi Steve,

I'll start the construction of new game room (more an extension in fact), behind the existing one, and the name will be of course : Nuno V  ;)

So Stay Tuned   ;) (...but I can take some time  :roll: ...)
