The new guy
« on: February 25, 2011, 08:00:13 PM »
Hi, my name is Bruce and I just joined up. I thought I would say hi. I've loved reading all the road trips for a while now and hope to contribute some myself one day.

For now, here are a couple of pictures of my cabs. I'm pretty new to this hobby in terms of restoration, but I am learning, slowly!

My Zaccaria generic cab. I love this cab. I know it's not nearly as nice as the dedicated Zac cabs but I still think it's great. It needs some cosmetic work, I want to change the hacked CP back to one player and I need to find an original Zac coin door and marquee, but the main thing is that it works and I have been having lots of fun playing Kung Fu Master, Pac-Land, Track and Field and Yie ar Kung Fu (can you guess my age?!).





My second cab is a Centipede which I just got via eBay. The condition is pretty good and the side art excellent. I will replace the CP overlay and get new trackball and rollers etc. There is a little bit of woodwork that needs doing but now much. I haven't fired it up yet as the seller said the monitor wasn't working. Might be an easy fix, but we'll see!







See you on the board!

Bruce

Welcome here Bruce, it's a great, addictive and fun place.
That Zacc cab looks really cool (not to mention the centi of course) so congrats.

Welcome Bruce

I'm sure that you already found a few nice topics here about Centipede restoration and CP artwork reproducing.

Reading those have been fantastic and really helpful. I can't wait to get working on my Centipede.

Thanks for the welcome guys!
