First time building a cab with brad nailer so I probably went a little over zealous with the number of nails so its gonna be a pain to remove.

He nailed that tiny ladder to the back of the cab. Duh.

If I had to guess he needs to remove the front piece in order to laminate it?  Is it being laminated with wood grain?   :dunno

Psssst. That's no big deal. Just cut the laminate to the correct size and you'll be fine.

I put the front panel on backwards.  Speaker grille should be on the right side and the coin door is shifted on the left on a Nintendo cabaret.   I guess its not a big deal if nobody noticed ;)

At least you nailed it on and didn't screw it down.  Get some sleep, pull the front board off, cut a marquee in and nail that puppy back on and go from there.

Leave it backwards, we don't need any communist left handed coin doors here in America anyway!

I actually would leave it, by the time you go ripping it all up and fixing it you would be 2/3rds of the way to a new one.

+1 Leave it.  Also, if you ever sell it and it pops up on CL you'll know it's yours!   :laugh2:

But seriously, if it were me I'd leave it as is.

+2 if you see it every time you look at it then fix it now while you can.

Or...  You’ll remove it by tearing it out, put it on correctly but leave a scar. Even if it’s ever so slight it will be there and you’ll say, “I should have left it the way it was”.

Food for thought.

Thanks everyone for the advice.  After looking at it for a few days, I decided to just go with the goof as I was looking forward to playing it more than how it would look "authentic" in my cabinet row.

Do all the artwork backwards so that it looks perfect in a mirror.
