WIP: New/First cabinet build.

Recommended Posts

Barely. It probably has about a 1/4" gap on each side (if I had to guess).

I don't know if you can really tell from this old picture:

Hey fellow HyperSpinners! I bet you all thought Zac and I fell off of the face of the Earth huh?

Well, here's a little update for you all. :)

We picked up some caster wheels, tilted the arcade on it's back with an appliance dolly, and installed them.

After inistalling the wheels, we tilted the arcade back up, then cut and installed the pegboard on the back.

We're hoping to get into wiring up the control panel soon. In the spring we'll probably tackle the painting.

We're also going to install some sort of door on the lower back of the arcade for access to the electronics.

We're still alive, and we'll keep you posted as things progress!

We should rename this to the never ending project lol. We got the control panel buttons wired up to the ipac today :) Got to play a couple games with the controls.

I went and wired up the coin door switches and the lights. Prepped the wiring to add the trackball light as well. Had a bulb out, told ray and he went off to the interweb and ordered some new LED replacement bulbs heh.

I know some of the pictures on this thread are broken. Zac is going to fix the issue. This project isn't dead, just neither one of us has had the time to work on it. Good news though, I now have a house w/ a heated garage :) So, come winter time, I'm hoping we'll have some updates on this or our HS-NES machine... This has been the never-ending arcade project lol...
