Those NNC's were a bargain....

Just so bulky & heavy...

Another batch of those would go down a treat...

Holy mother of god today was a killer!! Full 40ft container on my own with a borrowed fork lift driver, who literally just lowered each cab off the container into the floor...I’m too old for this s**t

I’ll add some pics when I get home...for now I’m having a well earned pint!!

“Yeah get a couple of containers full of cabs John it will be fun I said!!” I can be such a c**k

Yeah sorry about that Krellz but i'll get in touch if i get it sorted.

Also just want to put this out there now...I won't be bringing any more containers in after these, way too much hassle and stress. Never say never and all that but i'd rather stick pins in my eyes!! :lol:

Sorry guys

So how many knackered ones did you end up with from the first lot and are any salvageable?

Think Megalo's last shipment of E2's had two scrappers in - one ended up being Lettuce's hideous white & blue MAME cab - and that was just a rusty empty shell by the time the good bits had been stripped off to repair better cabs in the container. The other I completely rebuilt using a screen out of a Virtua fighter/Striker cab and a hand built custom loom.

I still have nightmares about the Aero table that I refurbished that looked like it'd been stored in a ditch when it turned up.

That's why I'm "Panel beater".

I stand corrected - anyone need any panels for the cabs they bought....

Got a few in the UK and three more in SMJ stores.

To be fair they have been ok, no scrappers, far from it, so far all have been sortable. TBF they all need a really good deep clean, service, cosmetic restore etc etc.

Raiden IV - i gave that a blast last night. Still prefer Castle shig.

I'm back at work Monday ping your address over and I'll post it up to you.

Overlays a bit knackered but I'm sure Ollie could repro it.

I''m just tweaking a multi so it's TATE games only.

Also got the Namco 246/256 multi so may have a blast with tekken or soul calibre....
