What do you guys think about my cab?
« on: March 04, 2015, 10:00:31 am »
So this was my first try at a MAME arcade. This board gave me a lot of help during the build and i thought that i would post the end product.

It started out with as a Golden Tee machine.

Being that I am a 33 year old comic nerd I went with a Marvel theme.

These first few pics are before the bezel and screen position adjustment. I also added two extra buttons (for navigation) on the left side since the pics were taken.

looks good, i'm sure it will bring many hours of joy.  Looks way better than my first cabinet.

Thanks! I have been playing it like crazy. My bothers seem to find a lot more excuses to stop over now haha. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. Especially the top marques. It looks amazing lit up. The photos do not do it justice

So once again, we find that evil of the past seeps into the present like salad dressing through cheap wax paper, mixing memory and desire.

What monitor/TV model did you use? I have a silver strike cabinet that I was thinking of converting.
