Not sure where your arcade game is going to live but I have never had mine in a place where the sideart could be fully appreciated. I wouldn't spend a ton on the sideart of my machines.

I'm a little late to the "shape of the CP" discussion, but the only thing I would consider is to soften the front corners. Getting around that with T-molding will be near impossible.

Hmmmm. Good point. I am a total rookie when it comes to the t-molding (and most stuff I'll be doing on this build) seems that Chance was able to accomplish this?



I suppose if I have a hard time with the molding (which I will be looking out for now, in that spot) I could modify it at that time....

LOVE the theme of this build!  Seriously cool, I'm a huge StarWars fan.

Tmoulding around the control panel was a cake walk. Take your time and cut out the right amount of the barb and you'll be fine.  If it helps, FLYNNs was my first ever arcade project, and that includes firsts of most of the work done for it. If I can, anyone should be able to just as well.

I have one question though....for those who have used the iL-lumination 5v LEDs, have you glued the LEDs of into place on the bottom of the buttons? Or do they just sit well by sandwiching between the switch and the button housing?


I've got the same buttons and LEDs. The switch will hold it snug enough, so no glue required.

Thanks for the input. I've got an update coming soon. Moving right along with this build.....
