Finally got the volume rheostats, after waiting over 10 months to find them! No luck on here, but a guy on klov was breaking a pole position, and I quickly done a deal. I actually bought the entire service panel, so at least have some other spares.

More Great Work.

It Looks Amazing.

Pole Position is still on my list to get next.

How's the PCB work getting on?

Cheers. PCB is still packaged up awaiting postage to mark. I'm restoring my 65 vespa at the moment, so lost a bit of interest in it, at present. I've already had emails asking to sell it.

Well its not such a bad thing.
It does show you did a really good job of the restoration if someone asks to buy it.

I have just got back one of my Outrun PCBs from Mark (RetroClinic)
He is the man around a PCB. 

Please put up some Pictures when its all done and running.
Then just watch that inbox fill. 

Top Work.

PCB has finally been posted to mark today. Will update when mark has had a look at it, and even maybe get mark to do a quick youtube video of it.

Just heard back from marc, and we have a working PCB!

It had a few faults, and one board had the english roms installed, and the other board had the japan roms installed! Marc said it wasn't a problem, but had a slight graphic glitch after the banner came across the screen.

All it needed was the english roms, reprogrammed to japan one's, which I said to do. Amazingly the battery wasn't leaking, but was replaced, with the battery backed sram, high score save mod.

Video of board running Here

Looks in good condition, Mark is the king of pole position repairs, let's hope it last a long time.

It’s a fortune mate ,I had mine repaired about 4 or 5 times
I love the game and miss it ,but it just got ridiculous and I couldn’t go on
I think it broke again after I sold it ,and it was only in storeage !
They say the Atari boards are worse than Namco
