I found an arcade cabinet for free and decided to build my own cabinet. I blogged the whole thing at the following link in case you're interested.

Nice story  Smiley

I think the same (regarding an old cabinet) : "...So I sat back and looked at it for a long time, realizing that it has a lot of history behind it, a lot of people who played it and either hated it or loved it. It probably sat in some bar or old arcade and heard a lot of passing lives, loves, anxieties. I decided that the dings, scratches, cigarette burns and small busted chunks of wood revealed its character..."

We guitarists call that "relic" or "mojo" Grin

Hell yeah! But would we (I'm also guitarist) be able to fix guitars like we did for cabinets anyway? (personally not)  Roll Eyes Wink
So let's continue to keep 'the mojo' intact  Grin
