I would be curious where you got the overlay as well. I am getting ready to restore a Neo Geo cab, but I am going to do it from scratch. The one I got for a $100 was a conversion and a bad one at that.

As a newbie, I would like to throw a few questions out to the community.

1. The wiring in this old cab is circa 1988. What modifications to a new Jamma harness would I have to make to make it compatible with neo geo?

2. I have found several sources for the Neo Geo cab conversion decal (red square/white lettering). Does anyone know where I could get a rub on decal made of the logo to avoid the potential issue of color mismatch?

3. On that same note, does anyone know the name and the manufacturer of the shade of red used on a neo geo cabinet?

4. Also, I have been having trouble finding "detailed" building plans for a neo geo cab. I found a guy who built his own, but no actual measurements. If anyone has a link to this info, please let me know (any versions).

Thanks in advance for any info,

deathbot


 


I am very much in need of a control panel overlay for a MVS-4 25 cab that I am restoring.

Awesome. Please help me figure out the exact color of red I need to paint mine. Also,you changed the marquee to red, is that painted or, how'd you do that? I'll see If I can figure out how

Was looking to see if I could get a FULL SIDE ART for my neo geo 4 slot? Looking to completely refurbish mine. It wouldn't let me PM CSS about the previous art.

Glad the "I" showed up.  Nice idea putting the extra MVS on there.  It's fits perfectly.   :cheers:
