Recommended Posts

So guess I'll finally make my thread for this.

This is my second cab build, first time around I build a mid/medium size build.

24" play field and a 19" backglass. No extra toys, very basic, worked great but decided it was time to step up to a full size cab with all the toys!

Here's a pic of it.

So, that's what I plan on putting in it. I'm still a long way away from having it completed. As of right now I've got the cabinet built, the buttons/coin door/cabinet legs installed and that's it. Probably 3 weekends worth of work so far. Next on the checklist is to paint the cabinet and get it ready to move inside so the wife can have her parking spot back in the garage lol.

Here's some pics of the progress so far.

So that's where I'm at. Plan is to paint it a satin black, and then eventually I'll print up some vinyl from the graphics that Stuzza from vpforums has been graciously sharing.

Build will probably slow a bit as I'm to the part where everything I need to order starts getting expensive :)

I'm stealing the PC from my previous build so that's set. TVs/control boards/other misc cabinet parts(rails/lockdown/etc) are still to come!
