Chase Hq to outrun

Recommended Posts

Here details of my latest project

Well I was not as happy with this purchase.

I made a purchase in the dark and bought it with out seeing it working and without getting a proper look at it

In the daytime and I can now see the cab is in poor condition and a few things not working.

I must mention these old cabs don't like to be moved,So I wasn't shocked to see a rom error or the monitor colour problem.

After cleaning it for a few hours I kept finding dirty parts every where it was so grimy

And the inside is showing age the power supply needs a good clean and the wiring loom has more joints than Jamaicans cigarette tin.

But that's a easy fix with a bit of love I could get her back to near new

However the wood work is not.

Ouch

Oh dear

The guy also told me the accelerate pedal was stuck on so when you fired up the game it was go go go .

After 1 hour trying to get this bolt out I found out why the pedal was on full this cog had come loose and of course nobody had put the work in to get the Into pedal enclosure

Also the monitor is missing it's cover

Leaving not safe to leave on around little folk.

So with some tweaking I got the game running but I still need to adjust the monitor colours to have it perfect.

lets work out how much it earned

It's was 30p

028aca51ee102b73c24e89c2ab6eb307.jpg

So any way after a few hours with im a bit confused what to do ?

The wood work is rotten the T Molding needs replacing if I fitted new stuff it would be loose in the groove and where the woods expanded it would look to small.

so in the time and money it would take to fill it/sand and repair all the bad stuff I could draw around it and cut new sides from mdf, it's not like I'm going to loose any artwork.

And to be honest this isn't a true chase HQ cab because the control panel hasn't got correct artwork and the marquee doesn't have lamps or wiring fitted to flash when you go into chase mode.

It's hard to see but the marquee in bad condition and flaking off.

The Bezzlel glass is in great condition

Do I can use it again.

Here's what I have in mind I may use the middle section and restore the wheel pedals,gear stick, and back parts ,sell the pcb

Keep the monitor and connect it using a Jpac and fit a mid level Pc so I can play all of classic driving games but keep the old school look.

P.s

I did find this football coin ; )

I dropped the pedals off to a friend that has a polishing wheel and I think they came up pretty nice

Before

After

I painted all the wood parts even though I'm add art work it's good to seal the wood

This stuff is great

Bought some wood for the bottom of the machine ( I'll paint later)

Then I fitted back the majority of my new copied pieces

Out with the old

And after a lot of work I finally got the original artwork off off and all the sticky glue

07C40781-49AD-4417-96C9-3DCFF66160B5.jpg

Polished these catches

807CD073-638F-453B-8815-28658B6FE45F.jpg

Cut the slot for the T Molding

And did a test fit with a spare piece I have

I still can't decide between red or chrome for the T molding

The carbon fibre vinyl wrap I bought is great it's got a real texture on it

Here's me putting it on the control Panel

093A9083-A47C-49C2-BB5C-9714E97C8EB4.jpg

And the Coon door panel

684C414A-B5B8-4CB4-B69A-B89F2034A8F8.jpg

And I have two option for the speaker

Original or my round one anyone got a preference ?

6B94D3BF-CE98-4E7D-92E3-FB6468BCABD2.jpg

So I pulled these surround speakers apart to use with the £5 sub that I picked up

A62BA8A6-D390-4750-BD92-F9DCC52B6B26.jpg

Is that to many speakers ?

9BA71223-0CF3-4959-999D-02892631F841.jpg

All fitted with tweeters too

9A19E18E-7EBB-4E8C-9980-AB09BFA263AD.jpg

I also fitted so T-molding (thus isn't new stuff and when I get the cash I may replace it as its in a bad state.

2425A810-BCDB-42BD-9191-4D6D337A1163.jpg

And then I had to figure a way to fix the wheel in place at the right angle

E53DC342-9CD3-4D46-B5CC-19FDAC08595C.jpg

So I fixed it in place with long bolt and tightened everything up

6FA701A5-0E30-46CC-B16F-AA696FBE5AF4.jpg

And I put the glass in place

B1B1FFC0-AC2F-4F0F-9563-D66484F5858A.jpg

Have the insides another coat of paint

76B1A05B-52E0-400F-BADC-E6AB07D6923C.jpg

Got the artwork printed along with another cabs

6979E018-F23D-4EFD-9626-E46A58569ACE.jpg

Fitted the marquee to the backing

And the map to the glass

4F864C39-DA61-4480-AC97-7BAD4DE752EB.jpg

Loaded her into my van

7C7C2C7D-CE4E-4043-BA38-112BD7F1D7C1.jpg

Hmmmm gonna be a tight fit

79DE0A26-D929-4789-935C-2C6FAC921432.jpg

At home at last

Nice work! You definitely made the right choice of basically rebuilding the whole cab...that original woodwork made my stomach turn :P

The red T-molding was the way to go as well!

What is that steering wheel btw? Looks pretty good, is it connected by USB?

So what games are you gonna run on this? I'm not very familiar with the arcade driving games, what are the best ones and on what system?

Also...what are the computer specs for this build?

...lot of questions...sorry! :)

So you did all that work and then kicked them out in the shed? Seems like they are on time-out or something, lol... But anyway, Great work and how do they hold up in the high humidity outdoors?
