I love it! totally breaking away from the fridge with a 5 ft control panel aesthetic! I really hope you think about the art a bit more though. That is such a strange design, it really needs some awesome custom art. I'm thinking wild colors, and cool accent lines. Take your time and don't rush this, you already have an awesome start, and once you get there really concentrate on those finishing touches!

PS is this a "wife friendly" machine? Not to pry, but I always want to know what peoples marital status is when they build their cabs.

Looks great. It looks 100 times better with the corners beveled and it didn't exactly look shabby in the 1st place.  8)

Keep it up, I can tell this will have an awesome finish already.  :cheers:

Now that is some custome work. Seen some similar projects and approaches, but they're few and far between.

I like the clean look you're going for, but aren't you afraid that in the area around the coin inserts the paint is going to look bad (scratched) quickly?

The coin slots you see at the moment will be coverd by a raised panel with lit coin slot - I just didn't want a coin recovery/coin box door below that on the front of the unit.  The final raised final panel should be able to take plenty of coin without scratches to cab.
Lol, sorry. I feel embarassed for even assuming a single detail would be left unaccounted for :-[

Can't wait to see this thing finished in all it's glory.

Hi mate, are you having just 1 switch on each side for flipper or adding a second one for tilting. i recommend a second one for tilting on each side. The fist system i built with on 1 button on each side and then later on i added a second button for the tilting action ... It makes for some good pinball gaming.

Excellent idea, proving that you dont just have to have a two armed two legged arcade.
-I have never seen the spray putty, intereting finsh, and I can already think of about 500+ applications I could have used this for in the past, I am running out the door to get some to play with.
-Did you note how you will finish it, I saw you wanted black gloss, compressor and spray tip?  I will be very interested in seeing that one. 
-Bump to you sir, excellent work!

If you find some of that spray putty in a rattle can in the US please pass it along.  I have a couple projects coming up that would be great for.

I found some at pep boys. Not the exact same make, but it was "spray filler/putty", so I'm guessing it's close.

I intend on trying it out on a future project. The cab I'm working on now is all finished hardwoods, so stuff like this is off limits  :)

Still gonna do those artwork sugestions in photoshop you mentioned? b :D I am interested ya know  :cheers:

I did a couple sketches just to visualize, and am having a hard time getting the proportions right due to all the angles that it has. I then got a brainstorm! That 3d file that you made could be the ticket, my gf is a modeler and I could unwrap that to get some shapes to drop into photoshop/illustrator. You wouldn't be against letting me snag those files would ya?
