Koolbrez67's Cab Project

Recommended Posts

Well I finally got one. I am so happy it needs a little work and a new monitor but I am happy. I also got it for free which is even better . But what really makes it nice is when I got it home and found 27 dollars in quarters still in it. I was like hell ya. So It is now called my Lucky Cab. I took some pictures of it to show what it looks like I am going to take the free change and part out the rest of the unit on ebay and use that money to fix the unit.

That is actually very funny! Nice job!

I used to walk down to the local Zellers store to play Rampage quite a bit :)

Getting your first cab for free it's great. Getting your first cab free with 27 dollars in quarters Priceless. It's my lucky cab. It was also full of playing cards from Vegas. It is in mint condition on the inside. Everything is there and it runs.

Pretty awesome, I looked forever for a cab around here and couldn't find ANYTHING except for a track and field cab. I finally found a street fighter 2 cab but paid $150

Update sold the Marquee , Bezel and sound card of the rampage cab. Used the money to by a TrackBall. I've completely gutted the unit now and I've started stripping the siding off. The Control panel has been cleaned up and needs a new piece of sheet metal. I will put up pictures tomarrow of how it is coming along.

I will be getting new Tee molding soon and I am ready to start on the 28 inch LCD and get some smoked plexi glass from Tap Plastics. I need to have a marquee made. I was hoping to get Billpa to make me a Hyperspin marquee. Other than that I am waiting on the rest of the stuff to get here and I will be ready to rock soon.

Yo man- if you're gonna go all out, I suggest smoked glass instead of smoked Plexi. It's looking great so far!

Well I got a little done while the site was down. I got my smoked plexi and it looks great. I cut my control panel it was a pain in the ass. I killed my drill in the process and had to go buy another one. So Here is my update. I will be finishing up the CPO next week. I will wire it this weekend. I am trying to time it with the newest release of HYperspin.

Inspirational buddy. Still cannot believe you've provided all that wonderful theme art and stuff but didn't have a cab. That said, your first baby is awesome :)

Looking forward to the video with HS 1.0 installed on it. Sweet!!!
