o here we are, 5 years later, with a new trilogy! EPISODE 4 - Before The Gate
OK guys, the big 'reunion' day was set to the 24/11/12, but I started a part of the job last week.
Why? Just because some parts required to move other 'non arcade related' parts before to be moved themselves, and I didn't want to waste too much time with such 'additional work' when the helpers/volunteers will be here. Of course, it concerns only parts I have here in my home (Remember, I've parts at three different locations : my house, my mom's house, and my dad's house). But when I say 'inside my house', I should precise 'everywhere in my house/land'!
To be precise, parts are located :
- in my attic
- in my office
- inside the shed in my garden
- inside the small 'garden room', under my game room V2
So yeah, today the job is to move out as much as possible stuff from the attic/office.
I'll be helped by Sam, already in original trilogy casting... remember in 2007, he was the keeper of some huge parts inside his garage
... (by the way, my Pole Position is still inside his garage today ...oppps )
(he wasn't happy when I came back that night with all that stuff to put inside his garage...)
So you can understand we won't be able to move 'big parts', because we'll be only two of us today!
Enough blabla... Saturday, the 17th of November 2012
Let's see what we can get out from the attic...
Well, a lot of things to move before having access the the Galaxian3 parts...
...and in the other part of the attic, I don't even have space enough to take an overall picture! Damn it!
Now see all the stuff behind me in my office!!!
Of course, we won't move these three 'racks/boxes' today, remember we are only two guys today (although we were only two guys 5 years ago, to move up these three racks inside the office...)! So the idea is to remove all the fragile parts (LD players & Audio sound amps) from this rack :
Ok, historical moment... the first GT6 part to officially enter the V
We are randomly moving out parts from the office/attic... no real stress today ... it's just a preview of the job we will do next week, with an entire 'UGSF Team'
Here we have a box that includes wires if I remember well...yes, it's wires... written on the box ('cables' in French)...
The huge BOSE speaker bass box ...
Big, but not heavy part to move out from the attic to the 1st floor...
...and from the 1st floor to the ground floor...
Parts of the roof
It's time for a break... powered by Dr Pepper of course
More stuff 'in transit' ...
Some parts are really too dusty, and need to be cleaned before entering the *brand new* V
Here... remember that picture in 2007
Here's the same part, 5 years l8ter
Ok, let's continue to bring parts inside the V
As you can see, the new carpet is 'protected'.stay tuned...
