my outrun upright restoration

Hey guys, it's been a while, how y'all doing?

I've been busy restoring my OutRun!

Sorry no pics, the forum is telling me they are a security risk or something!

I fully wrote it up here for those interested...

You did an incredible job Jim. Canít believe that was your first restore, you picked a tough one.  I think I would have given up as soon as I saw those gears broken on the steering column.  Glad you saw it through, it came out beautifully.

Thanks guys, really happy how it turned out.  I'll be installing the enhanced romset soon I think so my incredible high-scores will be saved ;)

Thanks mate... lots of elbow grease! ;)

It's just wordpress, but i bought a theme that my workplace also uses as it was much better than all the free themes, and I couldn't find one I liked!

I'm on Wordpress too - I'll have to look around.

I like the layout.
 Nice work overall   :)

That looks great.  That damn game earned a good 20 years in the arcades.  I still see one occasionally.
