SO I put this empty cab up for sale on the webstore and it sold within 24 hours. The only condition was that he wants to pick it up this Weekend!! So here goes the Warp Speed Build with no corners cut. Started yesterday afternoon.

Before and after of the gun and coin door. Adding some bling to clean it up a bit.

PC and wiring wrapped up. Just waiting on a few mercury tilt switches.

thats a neat little wiring loom you have there going from the front to back. is that from the original machine or your own custom loom?

could looms be preMade for these cabinets or do they change depending who makes the cabinet depending on what toys they want and stuff. im guessing it changes to much to standardize.

some sort of off the shelf loom for all the buttons/contactors/coin door/audio/lamps would be fecking cool and really helpful but nightmare to make it adaptable for every one i guess.

Hey Russ. Thanks!! The harness in the picture is from the original machine. I am however developing a turn key wiring harness for the DIY guys. It will include my new custom labbeled 12v LED cabinet buttons, flipper buttons, leaf switches, PC power button, HDMI's, VGA's, DVI's, USB's and speaker/sub wiring. Basically all wiring and connectors to be plug and play with a standard PC ATX power supply. The customer will just tell me what buttons they have and where they want them on the cab. I will take care of the rest. It should allow someone to complete their cab wiring in less than 30 minutes with no soldering or crimping required. I have everything to start building them now but I'm trying to figure out a fair price. It is very time consuming as each harness would be custom made to the customers specs.

On another note. I wasn't super happy with the one dimmensional look of the gun so I decided to dress it up a bit. My OCD is letting me leave it alone now.

What an amazing build in such a short period of time! Looks awesome.

Oh hell yeah! Sign me up for that! I'm actually glad I've delayed my build, between you, Greg and Zeb, you're making it real easy for us noobs. :)

Man, you weren't kidding about the warp speed! Awesome job!

The change to the gun grip was a major improvement. Was curious what process you used to apply the black to the relief areas?

A very small brush and a steady hand. It wasn't too bad. I used an acrylic paint so if I slipped I just wiped it off the silver. Whole process only took about 10 minutes.

Oh. BTW Scottpe. Your graphic design skills are amazing. Do you do that for a living?

Whenever you're ready just send me a PM with what all you want wired up and I'll get you a quote for that.

Aw thanks! No I just dabble in the graphics design. Been in IT for a long time, and have the need for graphics work pretty often, so the skills were pretty much developed through necessity over the years. Most of the graphics work I normally do is serious stuff, so it's been really a nice diversion to pour some of those skills into a fun project like my pincab. :)
