SEGA LAI OutRun Restoration update

Yesterday I received a parcel of more parts from the U.K this time. A fellow OutRun restorer and amazing OutRun buddy (I won’t mention his name so he doesn’t get hounded by people) was very kind to send me this awesome parcel below.  
It contained various decals, SEGA security screws, wire harness clip, complete gear shifter and a custom chrome plated accelerator pedal. (And the OutRun mug minus the tea) which was a nice surprise ๐Ÿ˜„

A huge thank you mate (you know who you are) this will be a big help in making the OutRun dream come true!โ€จ   

Happy 29th Birthday OutRun

Today was a strange day. 2 weeks ago a friend made me aware of an Australian OutRun machine for sale in Melbourne Victoria. I’ve been looking out for a machine for several years and they are few and far between in Australia. 

Today I finally became the owner of a Leisure and Allied Industries licences SEGA OutRun and it happen to fall on OutRun’s 29th Birthday. How weird!

  
This is going to probably be a long term project to get the machine how I want it. I will use this Blog to document the challenge and restoration of the machine so it will hopefully help others who want to do a machine in the future. I am excited to study this Australian version and share the differences from an OutRun that came from my original country England.
