-Greatly built out the "Cabinet Listing" section to include missing games like Sky Skipper, and added a section for similar cabinets that Nintendo produced before and after the "Classic" DK shape.
-Added two options for the paint match for "DKJr/Mario Bros. Orange" (why i didn't have this listed before amazes me!)
-Added links to ThisOldGame's Vinyl wrap colours.
-Added link to the Mikes Arcade Repro Button review/Installation from TCA.

Original nintendo cabs have a special laminated finish to them and aren't just painted wood.

Anyone have anymore information on this?

Also anyone who has made a cabinet from MDF, Particle Board or Plywood; How have you painted yours and what has been best/most accurate result?

Vwalbridge uploaded the monitor bezel pics.   :applaud:
- Added them to the post here that they were originally in.

Looks like the only remaining issue is finding a higher resolution version of the button comparison image that was posted here.



Found a KLOV thread where it was posted 7 years ago, but the dropbox link is dead.   :(

- PM'd JamBurglar to see if he has a copy or working link.
