That's really cool.  I thought you were talking about the ball on the joystick.  I have mine lit up and it is super cool and not distracting at all.

Can you take a picture of what you have going on here under the hood?  Or is it all covered with casing?  This is sparking my curiosity.  If nothing else, give me a good breakdown of what you did here.  Thanks!

Hey man sorry I missed this post. Here's an old video where I came up with the concept, the ones in the cab are exactly the same. The best part about this is that they are top-mounted joysticks, so getting LEDS's to light washers in that space is the trick...

Easy led dustwashers and joystick FX

Awesome, thanks for the video.  I had a feeling that was how you approached it.

if you turn on the youtube autocaption at 3:09 it translates, "but of course you can use RGB LEDs with this" as "laugh cause you can use that pudgy realities of this sticking your pack"

Shortly after that "Get as crazy as you like with them you know" came out as "Cat weekends crazy so I could not be enough".   :laugh2:

That Youtube auto caption thing is amazing. :D

Love this build.  SO clean.  I been reading your entire build and love what yo have done.  The I found Knievel' stuff.  All fantastic work.  I noticed you are willing to share the photoshop file if anyone will host it.  Can you let me know if your still willing to do this? 
Send me an email or PM if it is still ok.

Thanks

Luis

Thanks Baezl!  I might be willing to share some of the artwork, but I will need to see a build of some sort first.  So many ask for it without ever putting a screw to wood.

Literally every time I go through this thread (probably at least 20 times now) I get more and more inspired for my cabinet. :D

I was wondering if you could possibly share your artwork with me Shane, I emailed you about it forever ago (maybe half a year ago or so), but anyways I finally got my cabinet started and thread up and running like you had asked.


Here's the link for the thread for you to look at if you need to. :D

Thanks Sig. 

While I'm honored you want to use my artwork on your cabinet, I like the fact that it is one of a kind.  The more requests that I have had for the artwork, the more I've come to the conclusion that I really don't want a bunch of Abduction clones out there.  This is just a good excuse for you to get your creative juices pumping!

Hey, TheShaner, just a quick question?  What is the dimensions of the keyboard (ie. furthest point from lt to rt and top to bottom.  I have read this forum and quiet impress with all of it.  It is over whelming.  I live in a small town and going to local stores to ask about products to use in this project.  They all ask what I am doing and I tell them.  They have never heard of such a project.  Their second reply is "You are going to have to stand up and play that?"  What is this world and the younger generation coming to?  If you cant sit on your butt they, dont want to play it.  Thanks you any help.

What do you mean to the keyboard?  I have a small bluetooth keyboard, but it is inside the control panel.

There is a slight pitch to the control panel.  In the front it is 37.5 " off the ground and in the back 39.

Hey TheShaner.

Just wanted to say how inspirational your arcade design is. Very very cool indeed! Can I ask where you got the white plexiglass rings cut? I believe they were 14" outside with a quarter inside, right?

THanks!
