how much does a can of that set you back?

$9.72, it will be interesting to see how many I use.

i had a look online.

it said you get 2 sqm out of a can,

so was thinking even if you used at worse case 3 cans per coat, 2 coats, thats only $60

it looks nice and shiny in the photo :)

Thanks for the tip Agrajag, just bought one of them of eBay. Cheers.

No problem! I hope it is still available by the time I'm ready to start building. Can't really justify buying one now and having it sitting in its box losing warranty.

Well painting was a real learning curve and the red probably turned out better that I had hoped for but now that I have some painting experience, I know I can do better next time.

It is standard width and I did manage to fit all that in there but it's another thing as to whether they will be playable.

The way I look at it is if I find I'm not happy with how cramped the controls are I can always make up another control panel but I'd thought I'd at least try it out.

I like the idea but man that color is blinding me. Have you played around with the color scheme that you've got going on in the marquee's and try to incorporate those in the cab somehow? Like maybe a white cab with an orangesh marquee or something, orange buttons or trackball maybe.

Have you seen a Donkey Kong "orange" or "red" cabinet in real life? They are bright and loud! And I love it!

I painted my MAME cabinet DK orange, and my brothers DK3 red. (if I do another, It will probably be the DK blue)

      This is a pack of 47 hard to find and English translated titles which were made from the same template as SNES 3D Box Art Complete (HL 1.4) 1.4  by Styphelus. Enjoy!

      This is my ICade mod using USB encoder for the joystick and buttons with a Dell micro PC in the back end with USB volume knob. Powered by Windows 10, Hyper-Spin, and Rocket-Launcher with Atari 2600, MAME, Nintendo Entertainment System, and Sega Genesis emulators and roms set up. The display is a 4:3 8 inch Neewar monitor which I purchased off of Amazon. I have acrylic glass behind my wooden bezel which I drilled out holes for monitor buttons in both the bezel and glass. All artwork was created by me in Photoshop and printed on adhesive vinyl. The marquee was made with the same acrylic glass and has an 8 inch LED glass enclosure with remote made for small fish aquariums I purchased off of Amazon as well. All wood paneling is MDF material and was cut and drilled via a Black and Decker drill with spade bits and a small Dremel band saw. I mostly used gorilla glue to piece everything together. I used Behr Marquee 2 in 1 primer and paint to paint the MDF material. The Hyper-Spin intro video was created by me using open source and free program Open Shot Video Editing. It took me roughly 2 months to complete from start to finish in between work and my family lol. I am so glad I did it though I am so pleased and happy with the outcome. A match made in Heaven! MY favorite band KISS (original members) and my favorite hobby retro arcade. I absolutely love it!
