OK... I was looking for 'it' since a while  Cool

Since my last London trip where I used to play the game, I was strongly looking to buy one...

Regarding the London trip... arrow



Cool

... and I finally found one in france, for a reasonable price, regarding the year of that game and its great general condition  Smiley

Well, here we go with the biggest road trip I ever done (even bigger than the roadtrip done in UK to bring back Star Wars cockpit & Dragon's Lair II)  arrow

Thursday evening : I rent this  arrow



Huge 'car' for an huge game  roll eyes



... It would be great to own one...



Friday - 03h00am

Wake up !

Everything is ready Huh?



Ok  Cool  So let's pick up my -official roadtrip counterpart-  "Burt"  Smiley  

Let's check the counter before to go... 'coz we'll beat a record today  roll eyes



...at the french border...



...fuel... fuel...  confused



...a solution to drive without sleeping ...  lol  lol  lol



... so many hours of driving... and still not at location  Evil




Finally, we arrive at 11h30 at Nantes, very tired & hungry
 oppps

So after quicly meet the seller, and check the game, we decided to go to unch before loading the game and return...

This is Burt, tired...  roll eyes  arrow



And I...

 



... very good restaurent by the way  lol

Ok, go back to the seller... okey, everything is fine... I check once again the game : Test Mode, CRT, sounds, input... ok  Smiley

Time to load  arrow



...stickers are nice...



...huge marquee... more than 50cm high...




...load...



... carefull, carefull...



...very heavy...



1, 2,3 ... 4 guys to do the job  shock



...fixing the retroprojector...



... now, take care about the 'control panel / cockpit'  roll eyes



...protecting the parts...



... fixing the parts...



...close to the end...  Shocked



"Photograph Memory"  Cheesy



... and the worst moment...  confused   ... giving the money  :cry:  roll eyes  Cool



Ok, time to go... so many km to drive...  confused



...strange  drinks  in france...  Cheesy



...stuck Huh? Oh no  Twisted



No... just an alert... tjhe way is clear... we can drive  Shocked



...close to the Belgian border... yes  Cheesy



... and he we are... at the Nuno's Lair  Cheesy

It's 22h30 pm... to late for unloading the game... We'll do that tomorow...

OK, now stat    :



 arrow 61205 - 59684 = 1.521 km done  shock

OK, so the day afer in the morning...

 Evil Works on the road behind my house  Evil  Impossible to unload directly behind the gaming room  Evil



...we can't use retroprojector's wheels... the way to the Nuno's lair is too bad :cry:  



...it's a true monster... hopefully, the door is big enough  lol



...let's continue with the panel / cockpit...



...just remove the coins box, and we can enter it into the lair  

Ok, so let's quickly plug the thing... I wanna see if everything is fine after that roadtrip  Cool

...a lot of molex to plug...



... the coins box ...



...power on  Tongue  arrow



Ok now I've to found a good location into the gaming room for a such monster  confused

After trying different location, I choose to remove the topper, and fix the game like this :
