Its been cut down now, got a 22" sorted & machine to run things aswell as the MAME emulator..

Just need to purchace my arcade 2 player joystick and some speakers, make some skirts on the front so you can only see the monitor and paint it up and we all go _b

Looking good so far KJ bro, I saw it on Facebook yesterday......

Actually bro I started playing all those old school games last night after seeing your post, I have a few favourites back in the 70's & 80's.

I've got a mate who still has some of the old arcade machines stored in his back shed, he old man owned our local parlour.
I've been trying for years to score one but he won't bloody part with anything.

Well after all this time since I posted in the 1st place the machine has risen from the dead.

Still no where near complete, however it was great fun and the hours got wasted away old school styles. Going to be great for drink nights in the shed.

Taken apart for the rebuild

Screen tilted back, drawer added and speaker and sub system added

Finally painted black, needs another can to even out the finish, needs stickers added also, but pretty much done
