Yeah I planned on fitting in a 27" tV SLREADY PICKED ONE UP FOR $25.00 And for the buttons I ordered and X-arcade button pack with joysticks. I'm waiting on my controllers so I can start on my soldering/wiring job.

Are you guys using RGB monitors for your cabs? If so, then where do you get yours?

Hey all, Sorry for lagging on the progress. Been busy doing the family thing. Here are some pictures of what I got so far.
I plan on removing the 25" arcade monitor and retrofitting in a nice 27" standard TV.
First thing I did was remove the old button panel, trace it out on a new pc of MDF, then I traced out a new pc of lexan for the top.
Then I mounted both pc's to the arcade cab. For the button layout I just used photoshop to lay it all out. After that I started drilling it out.
Thats kinda where I'm at now. I plan on soldering up my wires to a stock xbox controller, wish me luck.

yeah thats looking good - its actually pretty tough getting button layouts spot on, especially with plexi on top. looks like your a dab hand.

what are you doing about an overlay for the control panel - i get my stuff done from scott at mamemarquees - quality stuff that looks the bees knees
