Hi, I'm going to do a semi restore on my outrun.

By that I mean all new artwork, metal respray and a general tidy up. It's not going to look factory fresh.

In regards to the pedals, if I want to clean them up and respray them, what's the best colour to use?

An easier question then

What's the quickest way to strip the paint off the coin door?

The pedals aren't painted, you'll either want to metal plate them (expensive) or polish them up (cheap)

Quickest way to strip paint is taking the metal work to your friendly local sandblaster. 

Have a look at my http://reassembler.blogspot.com/2015/09/outrun-mini-restoration.html" rel="nofollow - OutRun restoration for some tips and tricks. Thankfully I retrieved it from Jamma+ before it vanished!

Thanks! I was hoping to avoid taking the pedals to bits but I guess I'll just have to bite the bullet

Has anyone pulled the side plates off the base off an outrun?

They look held in place by nails and bolts?

Do you mean the chrome bits?

Mine are both chrome, but are the US versions.
Just round top screws on mine.

Good to see another driving cab lover.

I'm gonna get the metal bits powder coated but don't want to wreck the wood prying it off if it's nailed on

Top work.
I am doing my first one at the moment.
Get the pedals re chromed, just don't forget your Outrun Slippers.

How hard were the pedals to dismantle? Do you need to force the springs?


Posted By: nurtuo
Date Posted: 09 Jul 2018 at 8:34pm
Not bad at all really.
Just take your time.
The springs are really not that loaded up,
just tape the inside of the pedal box after the powder coating is done to stop scratching.
Any problems message me and I will run you through it.

Anyone got any idea how I dismantle the gearstick?

I've looked for pictures online and the ones I can find have a different stick to my outrun? This one has a small punch pin

http://www.ukvac.com/forum/uploads/620/OutrunShifter-06.jpg" rel="nofollow - http://www.ukvac.com/forum/uploads/620/OutrunShifter-06.jpg

Whereas mine looks like this? I've tried hammering that big metal pin but it's not budging

Better picture. It doesn't look like a pin you can knock through? But then there's no other way to get the plate off the stick? Unless the knob comes off the top somehow?

Any ideas? Hopefully its not £35 down the drain!

Please send a photo of the other side. There is 2 different gearstick (i have the 2), one have only one hole (where the pin is) on one side and i dont think you can easily get the plate off with this one.
But yes the only way is to push off the pin to dismantle the gearstick.

It's identical on the other side.

So do I need to hammer out the metal bit? I don't want to destroy the while thing

I didnt realise there were 2 different sticks


Posted By: beckscc2010
Date Posted: 12 Jul 2018 at 10:57am
Maybe you should try to drill it


Posted By: J69
Date Posted: 12 Jul 2018 at 11:01am
Maybe, but then there will be nothing holding the stick on? I need to be careful not to destroy the whole thing.

It's a stupid design!

Is the rest of the gear box identical? Are the 2 sticks interchangeable? Might be easier just sourcing the other type of stick


Posted By: beckscc2010
Date Posted: 12 Jul 2018 at 11:06am
Yes only the pin hold the stick on
Yes the other thing are identical


Posted By: J69
Date Posted: 12 Jul 2018 at 11:33am
Thank you. I might as well drill it then cos it's useless as it is.

Is there anyway of getting the knob off the stick?

You can try this tool https://gamoovernet.pixhotel.fr/pics/20170504103915-Little_Rabbit-FACOM-extracteur-de-vis.jpg" rel="nofollow">
I dont know the name un english

So drilling it didn't work. It looks like the whole shaft is just welded into the metal block so there's no way of removing the top plate. Bugger!

Any one got a sega gearstick with a roll pin they wanna sell?

Take a good pliers and "unscrew" them, thats easy

Let's hope this goes back together as easily as it comes apart!

Think I'm just going to sand blast the pedals and give them a polish

£30 to sandblast the pedals and powder coat the front plate.

Not gonna help you with the pedals, but I recently added the steering and shifter breakdowns here:

I was tempted to buff the pedals but the sandblasted metal looks ok.

As I said at the start, this isn't going to be a NIB restore, just a steady tart up.

Only things left to do are apply new sideart when Muddy makes it, and swap monitors with a different cab. (This one has altered beast burn in)

And I'm aware the bolts need spraying

You will hear that Outrun music again soon enough.

Yeah they look ok, might attempt to buff them evebtually. I'm gonna swap in a nice coin door from my afterburner cab

Out of interest did you have to bend the plate to remove
The rod that holds the pedals. I can’t see how to dismantle the deluxe ones bit it looks similar to yours.

Yeah. It was a 2 man job

Finally got a stick and plate sorted.

When I bought the game it had a bodged turbo outrun stick in. I bought a good condition top plate to put on it but the turbo stick was too thick.

I then bought a rough gearstick mech with a rusty top plate with the intention of swapping in the nice top plate. Except it turns out the early version of the stick I had doesn't have a roll pin and isn't removable!

So another £30 later I get ANOTHER stick and plate. It's all fit together now and looking much better.

I'll be selling on the spares to recoup some money back if anyone needs a nice top plate

Thats good!
One remark : imho, an important part of the shifter is the cover bracket
Here is a used one

https://gamoovernet.pixhotel.fr/pics/20170921201952-beckscc2010-20170921-195552.jpg" rel="nofollow">

And a NOS one:

If you want the real "feeling" of the shifter , you should go for the NOS one. 22usd + shipping on arcadefixit, not cheap but worth it!
