If you build a frankenpanel, chances are I don't care for you as a person.

I would like to get me a pull-start cab :D

Do you think that is hackable? If somehow you can hook a pull start up to some type of switch to turn the power on in your cab..

Perhaps have a regular button too... but that would really make people flip out if you busted out a pull starter :P  "Hold on, I'll have it started in a jiffy!"

That is funny.... I bet you could... you'd just need to make the pull start mechanism turn a generator (i.e. turn mechanical energy to electrical) .... a motor might work... and have a relay or switch that would "flip" when enough current goes through it....

Although you'd need to make it sensitve enough so that you didn't have a heart attack trying to start your cab... (but still need at least 2 pulls to get it going)

it's not the same effect if you don't get the "chug chug chug" on failed pull attempts hehehe..

hehe.. WTF you have a gas cap on your mame cab??? heheh
