Yep, Brad does quality work fo sho.

Now that he does reverse printed marquees...he needs die cut decals.   ;)

Looks like you are going to have to cut that side-art out by hand?

art package is as follows:

-Side Art, Die cut, on air release vinyl.
-Bezel, Die cut, on air release vinyl.
-Marquee, reverse printed, on plexi.
-CPO's, both with Polycarbonate laminate, on air release vinyl.

I've seen more of the print, and i'm over the moon with the work being done.  Reverse print is the way to go, for sure.

Few small updates here, coming towards the end.

First, worked on the cardboard bezel and I needed to recreate the "mullet" tat came with the cab.


Once cut, i used double sided tape and staples to reattach it.



I took some time to cut a new bezel based off the one from my Mario Bros. and some dimensions on KLOV.



Some of my art package arrived as well.







Thats it for now, the rest of the art package should be along later this week. I'll be able to wrap this up before the new year. :)

Chance, that looks pretty bad ass.  I'm contemplating using your artwork on my .vs cab (but it will be Radarscope Red, not purple).  Would you care?  I still have a way off to finish mine, but it's definitely a contender.

Looks great.  I hope you make that 12/31 deadline though!

This thread is in fact over a year old now. But it's been a nice ride, and I've learned a lot from this. This is the thread I'm going to whenever something is unclear for me. (I just go directly to page 8 or 9 and start from there)

Thanks!  :cheers:  I think the art package would look seriously bad ass on a red cab. Brad (Lucian045) will be offering this art package for sale. I gave him the original files. :D  Brad and I are in the process of refining both the art package and his reverse printing technique. Which is why I only have half the package on the cab. We're both committed to making sure its something even my high level of pickiness would be cool with. He's seriously doing an AMAZING job on this.

Yes, over a year old, but i'm committed to finishing it inside 2015. I figure one major project a year, right? :)  John, you ever run into a problem you just ask.

Continuing on...

I cut a new paper bezel, and mounted it into place wth some double sided tape.



Next i decided to tackle the secondary control panel. I've got to clean/referb a couple red buttons and a few microswitches still, so this won't get finished tonight.



Brad, (Lucian045) did an AMAZING job with my prints. Quite happy with his work on this project. :D
Here's a close up on a couple modifications i made to the Nintendo Vs CP artwork...





I also got the bezel art trimmed and installed, but i'm not ready to show that off until i get the rest of the art package in the mail. :D Thats it for tonight !

very small update for tonight. The remainder of my art package is on its way, in the mean time i decided to try my hand at making a keychain. I need a better printer, but they turned out all right.



I then decided to make ones for the rest of my arcades :)





I'm hoping the artwork is here Monday. Cutting it kinda close, but that art and the wireup of the secondary Vs panel are all thats left on this build. :D

Alright, Big update time.

I needed some more buttons to finish my Vs panel. so i decided to clean a bunch i've had sitting around.



Even going so far to try and save a couple...



I found a special super glue that seems to work well with these Nintendo buttons.



Next I want to focus on the actual DKU panel. I pulled the thing apart and removed the proof artwork.



Brad's done an AMAZING job with this art package so i wanted to make sure i took extra care applying it. This new cutting mat makes life easy.



Once on, I trimmed the art up, reinstalled the buttons and stick, and it was ready to go.





That was the last thing on my list that needed to be done. :D

Thanks everyone! Much appreciated. :D  Definitely wanted this done before the end of the year.    :cheers:

Congrats!

Funny you say that, Brad (Lucian045) has exclusive rights to sell the art package. I wanted to make sure it went to someone who could provide it at a fair price, had excellent customer service, and a high level of quality.  If you'd like to inquire about pricing and obtaining a copy for your own build he can be contacted here: bjbowman045@gmail.com.

Also, if you want to see the cab i briefly showed it off last week when i was on It's inside the 2 hour mark, as i was only online for the first couple hours, (most of those guys are from KLOV, so apparently i got a bit of a grilling  :D ). Make sure you guys show them some love and subscribe to the channel.

It's all shiny and everything, but I thought it was a more interesting cabinet when it had that other artwork on it.  Oh well.

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

If he does, I hope he doesn't post them. It would ruin the illusion. Use the spoiler tag if you do, Chancester.
