On the adhesive side it has paper, on the artwork side it has another paper layer that you peel off after.

So you did have the mask on it. Gotcha. I might have to get that bezel masked to try and apply it, then. Thanks!  :cheers:

I have to get the marquee printed again, as there was an issue with the last print. Something to do with the way Illustrator deals with transparency while converting to PDF, very annoying!

It is nice to see somebody take a new spin on an old classic and succeed on this level. This game is a grail for so many. The original is a classic game with a great cabinet, and yet you have raised the bar!

I have similar motivations with other games, but always hesitate. The difference between pondering a design and building it from scratch is what separates 'another arcade build' versus a classic that nobody forgets. This is absolutely amazing. Having begun restoration on several machines gives me a whole new respect for a machine like this too. It is slow, tedious work. Rushing something ruins it. Taking the time to put up videos is awesome too, considering I don't even have the patience to take the occasional picture of my projects.  ::)

There is so much talent on this website. Builds like this take the site to new levels. Astounding work!!  :applaud:

Marquee artwork is coming Eric. I'm not using sideart for now, as the cab will be placed between two others. Maybe in the future.

Got the marquee vinyl installed. Was a bit tricky as it wraps around three panels (marquee + panel above/below) but it's looking good.
Sorry about the angle, but I have all sorts of light hitting it right now:

Nice! It kinda looks like it would if the game came out in 1977!  :cheers:

It's look really tight man.  But I do admit, I find it a bit plain looking without the side and kick panel artwork. Perhaps because I'm so used to seeing it on the original cabinets.  :dunno

Regardless, great looking cabinet and awesome animated panel!  :applaud:

Thanks my man. I haven't decided what to do with the kick panel yet. When funds are flowing again I'll look at artwork for this, plus the sides. It's just great to have it all up and running!

It's just the Mala frontend running Mame, as described earlier in this thread.

I just rescued one side from an original cabinet that was going to be trashed. I was going to try to sell this but this is pretty awesome! I might need to build one myself.

Very late question here, but what size monitor do you have in there?  17" or 19", I'm guessing?
