Re: Candy Cab SNK SC19-4 restoration - A work in progress

This evening I restored the LHS art. Overall the art on this side was very good, just a couple of little scratches and one fairly large scrape a couple of inches in length. It was covered in a thin clear film which was pretty bad it was scratched off in a few areas and peeling in another area. I car...

Re: Candy Cab SNK SC19-4 restoration - A work in progress

looking good mate. :D What's special about novus then? Is it perspex specific or something. I've never heard of it, tbh. Well TBH I've never used it before but I've done a fair bit of research on what to use and Novus seems to get the thumbs up (they sell it on ebay thats where I'm gonna buy it fro...

Re: Candy Cab SNK SC19-4 restoration - A work in progress

Only a small update for today I cleaned the front of the bezel, I used some super market own brand car bumper and trim restorer and it's come up brilliantly, really, really shiny. I know it's only a 2 minute job but it's really lifted that area of the cab. Before buffing http://i934.photobucket.com/...

Re: Candy Cab SNK SC19-4 restoration - A work in progress

I've now prepared the cab ready for polishing the exterior (well almost, I just need to remove the CP base, I couldn't find a stubby otherwise I would have done that tonight) . I have stripped off most of the control panel, there is a metal latch inside the cab which you push to the left to release ...

How many 100 yen coins are you after?
I have just got another 18 but if you have any spare ones kicking around just let me know. The coin box is really big and could prob hold 1000's :lol:

Re: Candy Cab SNK SC19-4 restoration - A work in progress

I've had a go at the inside of the cab, it was pretty filthy but with a bit of elbow grease it's come up a treat :awe: Pretty grubby. http://i934.photobucket.com/albums/ad190/Paulie11111/SNK%20Neo%20SC19-4%20Restoration/insidedirty.jpg http://i934.photobucket.com/albums/ad190/Paulie11111/SNK%20Neo%2...

Re: Candy Cab SNK SC19-4 restoration - A work in progress

I've been able to work on the marquee area today. 1. I removed the marquee, this was quite tricky as it was stuck down with double sided tape and super glue and I was concerned about damaging the paint, thankfully it came off fine albeit very slowly. Before I started working on the marquee area http...

Re: Final Fight or Streets Of Rage?

For me it's hard to choose but i'll go with Final fight (arcade and Mega-CD). I much prefer those versions to streets of Rage 3 which I think is the weaker link in the trilogy but it's still good fun. SOR1 is really good but not quite in the same league as FF, now SOR2 on the other hand is another b...
