Hi, I'm going to do a semi restore on my outrun.

By that I mean all new artwork, metal respray and a general tidy up. It's not going to look factory fresh.

In regards to the pedals, if I want to clean them up and respray them, what's the best colour to use?

An easier question then

What's the quickest way to strip the paint off the coin door?

The pedals aren't painted, you'll either want to metal plate them (expensive) or polish them up (cheap)

Quickest way to strip paint is taking the metal work to your friendly local sandblaster. 

Have a look at my OutRun restoration for some tips and tricks. Thankfully I retrieved it from Jamma+ before it vanished!

Thanks! I was hoping to avoid taking the pedals to bits but I guess I'll just have to bite the bullet

Has anyone pulled the side plates off the base off an outrun?

They look held in place by nails and bolts?

Mine are both chrome, but are the US versions.
Just round top screws on mine.

Good to see another driving cab lover.

I'm gonna get the metal bits powder coated but don't want to wreck the wood prying it off if it's nailed on

Top work.
I am doing my first one at the moment.
Get the pedals re chromed, just don't forget your Outrun Slippers.

How hard were the pedals to dismantle? Do you need to force the springs?

Not bad at all really.
Just take your time.
The springs are really not that loaded up,
just tape the inside of the pedal box after the powder coating is done to stop scratching.
Any problems message me and I will run you through it.

Anyone got any idea how I dismantle the gearstick?

I've looked for pictures online and the ones I can find have a different stick to my outrun? This one has a small punch pin


Whereas mine looks like this? I've tried hammering that big metal pin but it's not budging

Better picture. It doesn't look like a pin you can knock through? But then there's no other way to get the plate off the stick? Unless the knob comes off the top somehow?

Any ideas? Hopefully its not £35 down the drain!

Please send a photo of the other side. There is 2 different gearstick (i have the 2), one have only one hole (where the pin is) on one side and i dont think you can easily get the plate off with this one.
But yes the only way is to push off the pin to dismantle the gearstick.

It's identical on the other side.

So do I need to hammer out the metal bit? I don't want to destroy the while thing

I didnt realise there were 2 different sticks

Maybe, but then there will be nothing holding the stick on? I need to be careful not to destroy the whole thing.

It's a stupid design!

Is the rest of the gear box identical? Are the 2 sticks interchangeable? Might be easier just sourcing the other type of stick
