Cracking job you have done there bud. Like most people SF2 is one of the games I grew up with (im 25 so its kind of my own personal 'golden era' game). Its soo nice to see an SF2 cab looking that clean.  :applaud:

Geez, at least wait till I am done...Anyway, one thing about these cabs I don't like is that there is no volume control. The only way to change the volume is a little potentiometer mounted on the pcb. So I de-soldered it from the pcb, put some long wires on it and I am going to relocate it to just inside the coin door. I don't want to tear the machine apart just to adjust the volume. Here are some pics and a Video of what I am talking about. Also, you will see some pics of Mortal Kombat II. I've had the pcb for ages and this is my first chance to test it out as I have not had a jamma cab till now.

















And the Video...

After giving the sides a nice clean rubdown, they turned out to be in pretty good shape, so I went ahead and applied the sideart.  Then I installed the cupholders I have had in my inventory for a while. I cleaned up the front kickpanel piece but it still needs to be replaced. I'll get to it at a later date. That plus the new t-molding should make it 100% restored. (In my own opinion anyway). Here are some more pics...

I might change out the lightbulb assembly for a flourescent assembly later down the road.

I just use one of those "energy saver" type fluorescent bulbs that screw into regular light sockets, in both of my Dynamo cabinets. Even though there are two sockets, one bulb, of the lowest wattage they make, is enough. It lights up the marquee fine.

Ok, done for now. What needs to still be done can be done in the "Arcade" area of the house. Here are some updated pics of it's final resting place. Thanks for all your kind words and for rollowing the process.

Quick update. Came home from work today and my new t-molding was waiting for me. Gonna throw that on tonight and then it's just down to replacing the front piece and the coin door assembly.

Awesome stuff man. The cab looks great!! So you mounted the replacement metal panel under the existing one? Did you cut out the top panel or just add new holes?

I actually placed the new panel cover on top of the old panel after cutting out the old layout leaving 1/2" around the perimeter and re-installed the original carriage bolts on the left and right sides for added support. Refer to the pics on the first page. Thanks for the kind words.

AWESOME Job!  I myself am 27 so the SF2 games and MK games are what I grew up on.  The cabinet looks great.  I recently bought a house, and in my dining room/card room there's a corner just waiting for an arcade cabinet.  Sadly, I have no garage to build my own so I need to just modify an existing cabinet (Or buy a kit), but SF2 will definitely be in my mind when designing the thing.
