  • Our New Cocktail Style Project (In Progress)

    Well after looking on here for about a week or so, still having not much of an idea on what we are doing we have decided to just have a crack and see what happens. Myself and a friend are building one each and this is the build up.

    We have decided to go two players on one side (for SF2) and one player opposite also for those games that flip. We will just use a switch somewhere to change between the sides.

    We ordered 18mm mdf, 3 sets of joysticks and 6 buttons per stick, ordered the coins mechs and brought a couple of hinges etc.

    So far we have cut out the frame, screwed it together, cut holes for the speakers and cut mesh to fit in the hole, routed some edges, and made the controller boxes and screwed them on also.

    So that's it so far, we are doing more and more each day, I will continue to post pics. Just waiting on parts to arrive.

    Back to sanding for now to make it nice and smooth ready to wrap in vinyl.
    We plan to add some neons too...just because we can.

                        Well here are a few more pics of what we did yesterday and today. We cut our coin mechs in and added a coin button above it so you can switch between the two if you want to pay for it or not (on a switch that will be inside the cab). We cut out two holes in the bottom of the cabs, placed a computer fan in one hole to draw the air in and added a vent at the top of the cab to vent the heat up and out. We also started to trim the cabs in vinyl. We have purchased some stripping to go on the edges also.

                              Cool, sounds good. Here are some more pics for everyone. We finished trimming the rest of it (except the top for now), put on the aluminium strips up the side, screwed the speakers in the sides, trimed and attached the control panels and added mesh to the top vents on the sides. Also added the hinges for the lid. Still waiting on legs, controllers and computers to arrive.
