The non artwork faces are fitted with matt vinyl



The edges are fitted with chrome T-molding



The pc was bought from gum tree


And i left it in its case


The controls and ipac are from ebay




The artwork is from my local printing company here is me fitting them



And here is the finished machine (with out final glass fitted)




And at home for final testing



And the final thing i fitted was the lock that i got from ultracabs and Jack helped me fit it ( his only 9 months)


I fitted the lock because you don't want little fingers getting into the machine whilst its running


After these pics i fitted the final plexi glass and tidied the wiring and loaded it on my van ready to be taken to its new home.........

So like all things that travel it had a little problem

When i set it up on location it forgot its bios setup,lucky i brought a keyboard and set it again no problem, then i moved it again its final position it did it again and also pushed the battery to make sure it wasn't loose

I set it up again and left it unplugged for a minute and it started ok

Im worried it maybe a recurring fault

Anyone have any idea what maybe causing this? Duff batt? Loose jumper?

how about doing this with the buttons...

pickup 6 blue and 6 yellow buttons (the same type as you already have)

then replace the button centers with the back ones you have, so they would look like this..


cheaper than buying illuminated buttons and would work well with the Tron Theme

I've been looking at local printing companies for my artwork...what did you get done, just a full colour print on self adhesive vinyl? Did you have any coating on it to give it some resilience, especially on the control panel?

This is a good looking build too, really clean.
