Does anyone have any recommendations on where to buy a marquee light? Thanks

For my Star Wars cab I used a cheap warm white LED strip I bought at a local store for about 15$. To spread the light I used aluminum foil. The LED strip came with a simple IR remote control dimmer so I can make it as bright or dimmed as I want it to be. I put the IR receiver behind the Marquee plexi with artwork (top left corner in the picture) and if I point the remote within a meter (3 feet) distance it works perfectly.

Thanks man.  I like your idea.  Very creative

Finally starting to put this thing together.  Hopefully going back to bro-in-law's on Tues to continue connecting this bad boy.  Trying to get the box finished before winter really hits here in Idaho.  Gonna be harder to cut outside in the snow:).  Then all I have left to do is paint, graphics, electrical, wire management, etc.

Any suggestions on 120 mm usb (I don't know if they have to be USB??) fans for the arcade and where to buy from? I think I'm going to do 2 up top and 2 towards the bottom (on the backside).  Thanks

You don't have to get usb fans, just splice a pc power connector onto a dc power brick. (See below link) I found some LED speed controllable PC Fans which I put in mine.
