« on: July 21, 2004, 02:17:06 pm »
Hello,

Vinyl I want to buy is sold by happs and is 40" wide. my cabinet is a small stand up 6feet tall by 27 " wide. i want to coat my entire cabinet front to back in vinyl but not sure how much i would need.. I guessed at saying 20 feet....... is that enough? how can i determine it? I am not a math guy......

Take some string and start measuring. I think the average game cabinet requires about 16 feet of t-molding for the sides. It depends on whether you will bother having the tmolding on the backs of the sides as well. Aqnd you mentioned the CP. Depends on how wide your CP is and if you need t-molding along top and bottom or jut top or what...

If you're still in the planning stages, I'd say wait until you are farther ahead before purchasing this stuff. I was all set for making my cab white, with blue tmolding. I bought it... and now I'm starting to like the idea of a red cab with white t-molding...

The Ultimate Cabinet II takes 48 feet and it's a pretty big cabinet. I ordered 50' of t-molding for mine just in case I mess up and 2 rolls of vinyl from partsexpress

I wouls always get a few feet more than you actually plan just for safety sake.

20 feet is gonna be cutting it way too close, try around 30-40. the back and 2 sides at 6 feet are going to be 18 feet right there. Then you have the front, top, CP, and screw-ups.
