atm currently not living at home with the wife so i needed something to keep me busy while i am away from home.

got this few weeks ago from gibo. The WA boys would remember it from the front door of the shed. Its all complete and came with a single slot neo. This was my neo cab plan till the day after when i got a 6 slotter :laugh:

it used to have a 25 inch monitor but the tube was dull as buggery. So quick cruise for hardwaste revealed a 21inch flatscreen vga crt.

decided to try a cga-vga adaptor and happy with the results. Monitor is nice and desbaz has kindly made me a bezel to suit the monitor

CP is bare atm to go to the powdercoaters. im thinking of forking out for a multiwilliams board for this cabinet in the future.

its a different shape than the most ive seen but quite fancy it

a bit of progress

CP is painted, coin mech uses the reject button to add credits :). bezel is in. now i just need to replace all the perspex and replace the sticks with some i got comming

ended up getting a 108 instead of my original idea. will cover most the 4 button games i want and cheap enough to fit the bill nicely. The marquee not sure on but im going to make it a big puppy to fill the whole area :o

you can see dez's surround im most happy. This machine will stick with the 21 inch it looks pretty good inside the cabinet IMO
