LAI OutRun Restoration Update 7

Lots has been going on with OutRun restore over the last month or so and it’s not just me sticking a screwdriver into my finger so here goes……..

It’s take about 4 weeks to put in the wire harnesses and repair damaged ones. Several wires in the machine had been twisted together and taped. So all of these were remade with new wire and some new connectors were also required as pins broke trying to remove them.


Everything now pretty much in place. No more tape on the monitor wires, monitor isolator. I also fixed up the eight 5v power cables to the PCB.


Next the control panel was re installed. Since this pic below everything has been greased too with will miniseries wear but also makes the mechanical parts quieter when moving.


I’ve bought 2 new coin mechs and the back plate and pedals have been sent off to be chromed


A new LED light has been wired to the AC power box and then after 13 months of restore I finally turned it on.


Some adjustments were made to the monitor and then all electrical parts were checked. No sound was coming from the machine so after a few days of investigation I found both speakers were shot. Will need to pick some up soon.

So here’s a few pics of the machine with some work still to do which includes installing –

One or two more updates to completion ๐Ÿ‘
