Jeez, you even do "golden hour" lighting techniques on your half done, unpainted bondo'd shells, and they come out looking ready for the Met!

Seriously  :notworthy:

Very nice, Ond. I'm really happy to see you charging forward on this. This cab's progress really inspires me to do good work. Keep it up!
Man, will my cab EVER be finished?

This

I hate you Ond.  I created a workbench...oh look Ond created this fiberglass, putty, bondo, custom contruction that looks higher quality than my car.  Yeah my workbench is made of 2x4s and mdf!  ;)

goes really well with this



As for the rest, keep us up to date Ond, although I'm not a particularly big fan of the design you've chosen (I like things old school... don't listen to a cranky old man, man) your skills are obviously amazing and I'm eager to see the progress you make!

HOLY CRAP OND...NICE!!!!!!

I can't believe I'm joking about your lack of status updates one month then missing TWO WEEKS worth the next :(

FANTASTIC work!!!! /drool

That fiberglass is unbelievable and looks like it would be a blast to work with. I am so working with it on a future project and hadn't even thought of the solutions to a lot of issues it offers...WoW just WOW...

 :cheers:

Oh and umm please keep the updates coming i won't miss them again!

Maybe I missed it but Ond, what are you planning on doing for the edges/joints?  I'm assuming no edge moulding?

O....M....G....

I've been following your cab for 18 months, Ond. You never cease to amaze me!  ;D

I'll almost be sad to see this project completed but I have the impression we're not far away now.

I wouldn't be too worried, Ond's project reminds me of the show Lost. The minute you think you are getting close to a conclusion, an even bigger and cooler piece of the story comes up. I'm sure we will be treated to a lot more eye candy before this project is over.

Awesome.

Prior to spraying the red paint, you should've went with a tooling gel and used this as a plug for a mold that you could pull the part from.  Then you could make many copies of your masterpiece.  ;)

It's a good thing you've showed us all the progress pics, because otherwise I think most of us would believe you simply went out and bought pre-fabbed commercially-produced genuine Astro (TM) arcade parts (tagline: The arcade cabinet that is out of this world) and were assembling this project from a kit. I am astounded by the quality of the finished product.

That looks great.  Love that red color still.

On a side note I went to the local autoparts store to pick up a couple small things and was looking at all the little cans of paint and the only thing I could think of was "Man, I wonder how many cans of this stuff Ond has went threw on his cab?".  LOL.

It is superior to the CP finish and I will re-cut that to match.

When the cab is all done will you have 1/2 naked female models draped across it like they do at auto shows?

After all the work you have put into the cab I just wish there was some incredible game (besides Mame) to run on it.

Keep up the incredible work! This thread is such an inspiration even to such a noob as I am! Your work only inspires the rest of us to keep in mind... "good enough... just ISN'T good enough!"

Cheers!
