Today I received...the RoadBlasters I bought from eBay:





Not as shabby as I was expecting, since the the courier phoned me up before delivery to make sure I knew what a state it was in! He couldn't believe that someone would actually pay money for this or to have it transported! The wood's all sound though and it's complete except for the monitor chassis and the back door for the monitor. The auction seemed to end on the cheap side, but I wouldn't have wanted to pay much more for it. 

The game PCBs were flapping about inside, only being secured at the bottom! The CPO is generally good and the whole thing will look a lot better without all the muck there is on it!

But my plan is to do a full restore on it. I'll be needing some repro side art & a marquee!

Is it a USA one? I should be able to sort the side art and marquee for that no probs.

The US one has a sticker for side art, and the Irish art completely covers the side of the cab.

Just swapped a "We missed you" card for a small box of goodies I EMS'd back from Japan.

Gals Panic S (Extra).
CECH-ZM1 PS2/3 memory card reader for a System 246/256 project....
Naomi Dimm firmware update GDROM (V2.17 - which you can then netboot up to V4.01).
Pack of PC Engine CDROM2 middle cogs & retaining clips.



A large box of goodies I SEA Freighted back is currently sat in customs so I should have them next weekend, that'll probably be the last shipment this year...

After paying HMRC £30 I got the box today, not looking good so far as the first item I tested is DOA.

Taito Type-X - this is a spare in case my other one with TGM installed breaks - it looks rough but works OK.


Naomi Net-dimm and three random security chips - I'll replace them with Zero PIC's for netbooting.


One dead Duo-r - sold as working, having stripped it down to see why it won't boot games , it looks properly knackered - but I might be able to fix it with some parts from the scrap PC-Engine box.



Boxed DUO with , inserts, manual, small box with pad, composite video lead & Japanese PSU, fortunately this one works fine and has already been RGB modded.
