Sounds like with all the problems that you've had, you better scrap the project and send it my way.  Sorry to hear about that.  I'll try to find a good use for it. :applaud:

Go stand by your mailbox until it arrives.  Don't ever leave the mailbox, as I've instructed USPS to only deliver it if someone is at the mailbox.  It could be anytime 24 hours a day, so pack a thermos.  ;D

You sent it USPS?   :'(

Shhhhhh.  I just said that because I wanted him to stand outside by the mailbox.  He didn't have a FEDEX box at his house.  Get it?

  • HAH! Nice one!
    • A lifelong project
I heard those guys couldn't find it even if McCoy DID have a FedEx box in front of his house.  They're all over at the high school trying to fill the hallway outside the office

That plexi is supposed to look like that.  I think it's actually pretty sharp looking.  You really don't like it?

I would like it better if it didn't make the graphics look like they were out of focus.

I was at the bowling ally this weekend and saw that they had a GT. I checked it out and it was out of focus too.

Just look at it like this. It is true to nature.

Well, at least it's authentic.  :P


Thank you for letting me know that though.  At least I know the guy at IT is not lying to me.

I saw one the other day at a BBQ joint.  I was quite impressed by the overlay material and it sorta had a texture like the plastic pads that your computer chair rolls on.  Slightly obscure and very durable. 


If it doesnt work out for ya, I'd buy it.

Here is the cab with the monitor, bezel, and T-molding installed.  I still need to mount the front door (which will open with European hinges) and return the CP overlay and get one that is sharp.  I also need to get glass to cover the monitor, but I am very close to being completely finished.

Sweet!

That bezel looks alot better as a monitor surround than leaning up against a wall unused.

I'm impressed with the results of your handiwork and determination.

There's too much detail in the text and glows to do it justice in Photoshop.  I'm hoping Nostrebor will pop in here and tell me how to magically polish the plexi so it will look good.

Yeah I was just popping in here and noticed this question you asked in April...

Ummmmmmmmmm... yeah... I got nuthin. :dunno

I think that they are supposed to look like that.  ;)

Anyone know the measurements of the "Golf Ball" for these Golden Tee Cabinets?  I would like to make one, but having some measurements would help!   It would save me the embarassment of going into the tavern down the road w/ a tape measure!

I bit the bullet and went to a BW3's to measure the "GT Live" cabinet.  It wasn't so bad.  Most of the people who said anything were interested in what I was doing.

No, no, no.  That was when I was looking in my neighbors house before I went to measure the cabinet. :angel:

The only thing I have is the graph paper I drew it on.  Maybe someday.  A file already exists for the measurements of the fore machines.  It is what Mark used.

Hi Mark, great job with the cabinet.

I saw you used a Betson 27" Multi Sync Monitor, are you happy with it?  I'm looking for a monitor for my Golden Tee Fore 2005 cabinet and was looking at the Betson or a the Wells Gardner equivalent which seems to be a little more pricey.

Do you have the full plans?  Site says his HD crashed and he has a backup, which sounds/looks like the base.  If you've got the full plans, shoot them to me please.  I think you should still have my e-mail address.  Save the lemonparty pics for McCoy though.  I don't even care if that IS his grandpa!

Did anyone ever post the full plans for Markrvp's Exceptional GT Cab? I have the bottom half plans from BrianMerry's Website but need the top part. Any assistance is of course appreciated.

Sorry, don't want to dig up an old thread but I just came across this thread of someone who used my plans to build their Goldn Tee Cabinet and also found some additional photos on an old computer.  I have posted them on my website http://www.brianmerry.com and decided to add a link to this thread for reference purposes. 

A tad late but.....ok, real late :)

Mark, good job with the build!  Your cabinet came out very nice.... :cheers:

Archive.org is your friend.   ;D

The site has many other GT cab pics and a suggestion for viewing for the AutoCAD 2002 format DWG file:
