Mikesarcade.com only has the back-to-front retainer. The bottom bezel bracket you're referring to hasn't been repro'ed. Mike responded to my inquiry last year on this issue....he stated that since the repro bezels are thinner in width than the originals, he came up with the retainer as a dual-solution so people didn't get confused on ordering over the two thicknesses and what they needed. He didn't feel it'd be worthwhile to reproduce and offer them for that reason.

So this is what he sells:

Bezel Retainer

I got my repro DK bezel from arcadeshop (which is great quality but slightly thinner as wundercade mentioned) and I have a good shape original metal bottom bracket for it.  It's loose, but that is really a non-issue (if it is an issue for someone, it could be easily fixed).  I think the original sized bracket should definitely be repro'd.  It would fit some other games as well and appears to fit just fine (a little loose) on the repro DK bezel.  This bracket is nearly impossibe to remove from an original bezel for cleaning without destroying it if the double sided tape is really bonding it tightly.  I think these would sell if repro'd.

Received my D2K Bezel (flat packed) on the 21st of May... Looks fabulous... Sounds as if the side art should be here in the next few weeks (roll packed) after he's caught up with cutting and sending out the bezels.

What's your serial number?  Mine is 51, and I haven't received my tracking # yet.

SirPeale,

Don't feel bad - mine is 53 and I'm still waiting on tracking info as well.    Let's hope something comes through this week!!

Ugh.... I was getting ready to order a set from Mike's and if the color is off, then I won't even bother - thanks for the heads up.

So yeah, we definitely need to know your serial number and your source for the other items, audiomidiman.  It'll be greatly appreciated!!

Yup... it came with my CPO shipment.  I received CPO, bezel sticker, instruction card and coin door decals.

Ok, thanks for the info and confirmation! 

With your serial number being 35, that means that Peale and I are a bit of a ways out.

I'm going to have to go back and look at my shipment then... I do not remember seeing any of that with my shipment.  If that's the case, then I need to call Rich.

I checked my shipment and I'm good.... For whatever reason I missed those when I unpacked my shipment.  They were "stuck" to the backside of the marquee...

Has anyone else received the balance of their kit yet?  I'm still waiting on mine and was curious who might be close to me (serial number-wise) and if they've gotten the rest of the order yet...

Bill - that looks awesome - congratulations!!

Rick,

I think Rich is shipping them in serial number order, so don't feel bad - I'm behind you (#53).  Rich has a quality product and has been 110% with me every time I've talked to him on the phone - we just have to continue waiting, but I know it'll be worth it.

I have a couple of questions about your awesome paint job:

1.  Is there any particular reason why you went with oil-based paint?
2.  How did you apply the paint?  Foam roller?
3.  Was 2 coats all it took? 
4.  Did you do any sanding in between coats of paint or primer?
5.  Did you tape the lines where the black meets the blue?  My cab does not come apart so I will be taping and your lines are very clean.
6.  Did you have any "orange peel" after drying - how smooth is the side art?

I put the first two coats of primer on my cab last night and it isn't as smooth as I'd like it to be.  I mean, it's OK but not *perfect* and I had to use a brush to get in the corners.  Tonight I want to sand to 400 grit and then apply 2 coats of the black paint and tomorrow I want to apply the blue paint.  I'm just looking for some pointers - Thanks!!!   :cheers:

I just received tracking information yesterday on a shipment from TOG.  It is l.isted as 5lbs, so I'm hoping it is the bezel, artwork, serial plate (and a few other items I ordered from Rich).  I'll update the thread again once I get the package.

I'm stoked because this way I can at least put another piece of the project to rest. ;)

I wanted to update the thread - my bezel was in the aforementioned package, and it looks amazing.

All I've yet to receive now is the side art and the serial number plate.  Has anyone in the thread (knowing the OP has sideart) received either?

The label on my bezel says Aug 18 which I'm guessing is the ship date so I've had it about three weeks now, but am still waiting on the side art and serial plate.
