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
