Project continues ... slooowly:

slowly?

what i'm asking myself: are the measures, your drawings and the cuts that accurate that everything (marquee etc.) fits in like a glove or do you have to do some tweaking and use italian magic to make things fit?
all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!

Project continues ...


I need a new control panel (why? I've 2 original defender CP, where is the problem?  ::)):

check this pic ... you can see the space between the cp and the cab:



both are bent  :-\ ??? maybe the humidity?!?!?!

ok no problem ... A new Defender control panel from scratch is done:





in position:



test with defender monitor bezel replica from arcadeshop.com (I don't remove all the protection, too much dust around  :?):



fits nicely  8)
