Almost ready to move the cabinets into the house for the cleaner part of the building process
,IE monitor mounting, wiring control panel, mounting computers, installing marquee light, installing a arcade button for master power on and off, and anything else that goes along with it.
These two cabs have taken me a really long time time prime, sand, and paint, and clear certain parts.. for a relatively small area compared to my full size cabs I built in the past its taken at lease triple the amount of time, hopefully it pays off in the quality of the paint job when they are finished. I had some set backs along way such as spraying to much clear on one of the control panels and having to go back and completely sand it down and use paint thinner to fix it
. I decided not to paint the entire inside of the cab since all its doing is wasting paint and primer, that otherwise will never be seen once they are complete.
I installed the lighted coin button from groovygamegear.com. If you decide to install one of these use a 1'' drill bit, not your standard 1 1/8'' it will be to big.. I'm glad I tried on some scrap mdf before actually drilling into the cab, also to take the button assembly apart is a little tricky you have to twist the clearish assembly the goes into the actually button housing where the microswitch attaches too and carefully pull apart. BECAREFUL. here are some new pics from today, they don't look that much different because you cant pick up on the clear coating.
