Capcom Mini Cute - Pink Edition

Here is my Capcom Mini Cute – Pink Edition.  Luckily the Mrs took a shine to this cabinet and didn’t need too much convincing!

The cabinet is in excellent condition, and looks great next to the Neo SC-19.

I haven’t had to do anything bar a light clean inside.  The pink exterior has been re-sprayed and I must say a superb job was made.  The monitor is amazing – sharp, bright, clear and burn free.  The previous owner mentioned that there was a fault with the H-size pot but I haven’t looked into this yet.

This cabinet originally came in three flavours – Pink, yellow and turquoise.  The cabinet is very well built and has a surprising amount of room inside for such a small cab.

Work Done By Previous Owners
1.         Ball tops and buttons renewed.
2.         Repro marquee holder fitted.
3.         CP re-sprayed.
4.         CP overlay renewed (MCS Arcade repro).
5.         Pink exterior re-sprayed.
6.         Side art in poor condition, art replaced (MCS Arcade repro).
7.         White exterior cleaned.  Small scuff on side touched up.

Work Done By Me
1.         Internal clean.

To Do
1.         Check monitor H-size pot.  Repair / replace pot if faulty.
2.         Replace sticks (LS-32’s) – shafts are worn.

The Games
Unlike the Neo SC-19, the monitor can be rotated.  I love Cave games and have always been curious about Pink Sweets so this seemed like a perfect match!

Many thanks once again to tart31 / Martyn for this awesome cab!
