Picked these up last week. John was sound and easy to deal with and didn't hide the fact these project cabs that need more than soap and water to get them looking decent again. Will be back in January to pick up some more.....hopefully.

Nice haul. :awe:

All off though, do they work? I haven't seen a 2L8B Windy panel before either. Is that a repro?

Yea all working ;) one of the Windy's needs the controls sorting though.

Looks like a repro panel, not sure a 2L8B was ever released. Colours are way off as well unless it's faded that much.

As I had a windy II the left one looks correct - mine had a 2L12B panel as stock, it's exactly the same layout as a naomi/blastcity/Astro. And the ones that popped up on YAJ last week.

More importantly did they come with a marquee, jvs-Jamma pcb and decent Toshiba tri-sync monitors?

No jvs-jamma pcb. Both have marquees and tosh tri-sync monitors.

Yellow Marquee = Windy 1, Blue marquee = windy 2.

No JVS->JAMMA that's another £120-150 cost to get it back to spec. I suspect the source for the cabs has removed them and sold separately to gain a bit more $$$ from the sale.

The body & doors should be perlescent white - which is why I regret selling my original one.

How's the geometry & burn-in on the screens?

Two of the Vewlix-F's in that container are mine - I still have to clear the space for them :oops: .

I’m pretty sure he has some unsold Blast city and namco noir cabs which he will probably put up for sale on here.
As far as I know all the other cabs are sold/had deposits put on them.

I hope someone snaps up the Namco Noirs as they will be tempting me if they go on sale.

Thanks.
Has the prices already been discussed/agreed on them on another thread?

Here’s the thread. I’m not sure on the pricing as I’ve not been paying too much attention.

Had a feeling the source of the cabs might have stripped the boards out, we'll probably with see them pop up for sale soon and more than likely around the £200 mark.

The konami JVS>Jamma board is gonna be a pain to track down, did find the Namco version but I've read it has issues with image quality so passed on that. Would a JVS>Jamma loom be an option, I know FrancoB use to make JVS>Jamma loom for the Naomi and Net city cabs. Would something similar work on the Windy?

I didn't have any burn-in on the Windy’s I got and no geometry issues, the screens were a bit rough though.

With regards to the colour I'm assuming the whole cab was pearlescent white except the base?

Would it be alright to MP you if I have any questions?
