re-zipped the kick harness and cleaned up the jamma loom:


and everything is back in:


Well,except the monitor:


While waiting for the replacement monitor, I pulled the 27" tri-sync from my MAME cab:


I removed the top 2 monitor brackets, swapped the sides they were on, and rotated them. This raised the mounting bolt up about an inch and the holes still lined up with the ones in the cab, so no new holes were made.  After that I trimmed the bracket on the monitor frame, then put the stock washer and wing nut back on:


pardon the dust!

Screws in the bottom for stability, screen burn is delicious, and you can see the Darksoft kit writing the flash:



Before and After of monitor color, size, position, brightness, and contrast adjustments:


Still need to finish my custom art and get it printed. The wooden frame is a good enough for now bezel, lol.

So are you using a carboard "shroud" around the monitor, or will you leave that out?  E.g. do you have monitor, cardboard shroud, bezel support board, bezel, then glass?  I'm trying to figure out if i should go and get a generic cardboard shroud for the monitor, or just leave it be.  Was going to try and make one myself, but nobody sells black construction paper/cardboard that's 26" wide.

I am not going to put the "shroud" around the monitor *if* I keep my 27" Trisync in the cab. If I swap back in the 25" than the paper shroud will go back.  As for making your own, its not easily seen so you could get smaller paper and just tape 2 or 4 pieces together and no one would be the wiser.

Is there anything you need measured or picture taken of?

Hew, well, pretty much everything.  any photo with a tape measure in it will make me happy.  As of right now, I only have photos.  Zero measruements so any attempts at reproducing are a pure gutshot.  i have enough parts to make my endeavour pretty obnoxous.  heh.

I'll pull the cab out and take some surround pix and notate some measurements. You want just some nice high res shots or do you want pictures with a tape measure in it?

I figured I could measure the paper shroud for you too

The Hi Res photos with tape measures in it would be great, but if you are able to denote physical measurements and just write them down in the post, that would be helpful as well.

Basically, imagine that you are giving instructions to someone on the other side of the world on how to reproduce the cab.  heh.

Measurements soon, just gotta button up the cab.

I changed my mind on the black tmolding and ended up sticking to my guns and getting yellow. The Blue at regular ambient light almost looks black and with black tmolding it just looked like a big black box.

With TONS of natural light AND a flash it looks this blue:

(which it isnt, at all)

Flash off with indirect light and it looks this blue:

(which is also isnt)

Its a nice dark blue and I like it. Still need to figure out which monitor is going in this summabitch , Ken showed me the art gettign printed so she'll be done soon!

Very cool looking!  I'm still debating on how I'm going to want to paint my cab when it's done.  Either go with a lighter, baby-blue like color that my brain remembers seeing SF2:CE cabs in, or go with the darker "Capcom Big Blue" type blue even though the cab technically isn't a "Big Blue".

BTW, I see you've found DarkSoft's forums for the CPS2 Multi.  (FREAKING AWESOME device, by the way.  I'm loving mine).  If you're interested in going with his CPS3 setup, let me know.  I am getting a full CPS3 kit with the DarkSoft SuperBIOS cart shipped to me this week.  I've got a battery powered New Generation setup that I can part with.

So, squared away the monitor, bought an untested k7401 chassis from ebay , told the guy 75 for the chassis and $20 more if it worked. Got it, it worked, looked NOS, so I sent him $25 as a paypal gift.

At first I put it in and the grid pattern looked like this:


Then I noticed my old non working chassis had a mini adjustment board that his lacked, transplanted that to the new chassis and:


To note, this monitor is a 27" and not a 25" like originally came with the cab.
Adjusting the monitor:


And moving it into it's final stop in the line up, between my HS5 clone cab running Strikers 1945 and my NeoGeo restore:


Heres the 3D printed case I made at work:

Its a little rough, I didnt want to wait long, and its completely functional.

Darksoft kit in action:


Kinda neat how the case is like a nightlight inside:


Bought a 5 foot long cable from aoiddr over on arcade-projects.com so I could move the LCD behind the coin door:



According to tracking the art should be here TODAY!
Here's the complete line up, for now:

not pictured is my Cruisn USA which is on the opposite wall.

Thanks for the compliments all, Im really looking forward to finishing this cab off.

Glad you went with the yellow t-molding. Definitely pops a bit more, and has a nice Capcom'y feel.  Great restore bro.  :cheers:

Decided to start scavenging parts off my defunct MAME build, and pulled the 2 new Comps out of player 3 and 4 spots.

Here are the old mismatched sticks, and the new ones in the second shot. Even though the old sticks didnt match, they played fine just weren't aesthetically pleasing.
