  • Was out tinkering in the garage last night and it was a little chilly. So I decided to turn on my candy cab heaters

    • Hi you lot,

      Hope it was ok to post this here with little update on the NNC rather than do a new thread in the restoration forum.

      Did a little project that's been bugging me about the NNC....paint the monitor frame 😀.

      Quick job mask it up (stickers, mounting points, and one small point on the underside for a grounding wire)

      Lightly sanded entire frame and wax grease remove, wash down/dry and prime wash down/dry. Then 5-6 coats of the ole Dymark gloss white.

      Not even sure if these frames on the NNC need to be grounded, but I put a point in there anyway just incase (there is bare metal under that nut) . The other end of this ground wire will go straight near the common ground point near the I/O of the cabinet.

      Hope everyone's well.

      -Tom

        • Just need a CRT cab to get the authentic vibe. But thank goodness for emulation and console ports.

            More CRT = More goodness.

            However, as both of those cabs are meant to be LCD, this is acceptable

              Thanks ;-). They come into their own on LCD titles. I missed out on a Chewlix like yours on GT yesterday for $1k. Dwelled on it too long but would have set it up as a tate for shooters.

                  • Been a bit of a dry spell lately with the cabinets (waiting on set of 5380 locks for the NAC and some fresh Sanwa buttons and sticks for both the NAC & NNC). Until...…

                    Care package from none other than the man himself mR_CaESaR ! Two conversions here SSF2X & AvP (new sticker soon) a nice A board, an auxiliary harness for the Jammafier, and some goodies for future net-dimm.

                    Pics of AvP when I get around to it. I have now had the attract/bootup theme of SSF2X in my head for 3 days 😀 . Hope everyone's well.

                    • Odd request, but does anyone have a spare set of screws and wingnut for the Astro bracket?

                      Yaton sent me the bracket but forgot all the screws

                      • Likely to be a dumb question or met with silence, but is anyone aware of any New Net City’s currently for sale? (Or if someone is willing to part with theirs )

                        Cheers

                        • Zax recently sold a pair to a mate of mine for a very fair price given what they were originally asking. While they're not on the site anymore, if you're really keen I suppose you could give him a try haha.

                          Also do you mean the screws that secure the bracket into fibreglass body of the astro? I think they're the same ones used in the control panel hinge, at least they screwed in just as easily for this Astro 2 I'm slowly restoring ':^) I'll do a count on any spares I have kicking about incase you can't find anything more local.

                          • Sure, doesn’t hurt to ask! Haha

                            Screw wise it’s the 3 screws on the bottom of the bracket, 1 on the top, and the wing nut screw, but I can likely source similar ones from eBay/Bunnings so not the end of the world in that regards.

                            • Hey guys

                              I've been offered multiple SNK Candy 26 cabs at ~$1500 USD each in Japan - this does not include shipping to be clear. I will be buying one. If you're interested please let me know.

                              These are 26 inch cabs with rotation mechs.

                              I think this will all have to happen pretty quickly if you are interested.

                              Cheers

                              • What is the appeal of the SNK candy 26? (Genuine question, happy to learn more!)

                                I’m open to get more candy so sales pitch away!
