New arrivals - A cab in need of love and a little gift

This turned up today. It's been severely tampered with but underneath it all it's still a Capcom Cute. Or mini cute as most people call them. This one has had all sorts done to it. It's been repainted obviously. It's actually a really nice quality paint job but It's going to be covered. It has also had all the internal gubbins stripped out and had an lcd installed. No loom, no monitor, no interior door, no coin mech. It needs a LOT of work. It's a labour of love though. It's the perfect size for my diminuative lady friend and she likes the design. She gets to choose the colour. So far she is leaning towards yellow. I have tracked down most of the artwork hopefully although I won't be able to get my hands on it for a few months since the seller has it in storage. The last thing I need right now is another project but it's the only opportunity I'll have to get a decently priced cute. It'll never be right but I should be able to get it working as new and looking right externally and that's more than enough for the lady friend.

A friend also sent me this awesome shooting game historica Opa Opa :D

It was in with a pcb but that's a christmas present. As such it'll stay wrapped up until the 25th.

  1. I realize this was quite a while ago but where did you find graphics for it, I'm looking for some of the metallic bits but haven't been able to find anything.
