    BigApple3AM - Big Red and More

    Late last year, I snagged a nonfunctional and filthy Big Red. After a lot of cleaning and tinkering, it is good to go!

    The CP was totally rusted. I cleaned it and added a nice replica CPO from QuarterArcade.com. Replaced all of the buttons and sticks. Replaced battery and the EL Panels in the marquee.

    It still needs new paint, vinyl, and T-Molding, but that will have to wait!

    I also like to grab random Sega/Capcom/SNK stuff when I can.

    Hoping to track down a Candy Cab this year.

    Dust washers go under the CPO.

    Yea, look at pics of a big red or a goldie, they go under the CPO, if they are above it will scratch the surface.

    I also cut magnetic sheets and put my move stickers on them. Now I can slap different move stickers onto the machine:

    Did you use the original stickers? Or did you make copies?

    I used some originals that I snagged for cheap. If I had something rare, I might have kept the backing on the original sticker so that it could at least be transferred again if needed.

    Do you have a good source for copies, or method for making them?

    I take all of my movestrips to a local office max and have them scan it in their huge flatbed scanner. Then have them print me off copies, cost like 10 bucks for a sheet of 6 or so.

    That's pretty cool. What material do you have them printed on?

    Just the regular poster paper they use. I don't need the lamination on them for how cheap they are.

    Do you happen to have the scan files for KOF 98?
