Let's start with some measures:

So you're interested in building the us-version or the european? I've got the european version and I've already painted a CPO for it.

Let me know and I will try to get the measures you want asap Smiley

Great! I'll watch with interest. This guy didn't have much luck getting measurements, but his email's there maybe he got them eventually?

Now that guy is really annoying....instead of grabbing the reached hands (people offered to measure their cab) he keeps whining for a complete set of plan......tz..... Roll Eyes

I obtained these measures from a Klov member (LongJohns):

In mm

1 = 1782
2 = 1630
3 = 218
4 = 724
5 = 724
6 = 94
7 = 28 *see note 1
8 = 25 *see note 2
9 = 236
10 = 164
11 = 884
12 = 10
13 = 15
14 = 45
15 = 7
16 = can't measure as cabinet stripped
17 = 200

*note 1 - subtract marquee thickness. Also this measurement is in the center - the marquee is mounted at an angle. 40 mm down from the top it is 31 mm to the front edge (less plexi thickness), and @ 185 mm down from the top it is 25 mm from the front edge (less plexi)

*note 2 - also less thickness of the bezel and also measured in the center as it follows the same angle as the marquee. Hard to measure without multiple measurements as the cabinet curves here.

Other measures (thanks to LongJohns on Klov  Space Ace):




























in mm

18 = 38
19 = 70
20 = 150
21 = 50
22 = 34
23 = 70
24 = 70
25 = 150
26 = 50
27 = 70
28 = 660
29 = 625
30 = 680 from the front flat plane
31 = 1450 to the center of the curve
32 = 520 from the center of the curve @ bottom to the front face flat plane (where the curve starts)
33 = 208 from the flat planes on each end
34 = 602 (fairly sure on this, but hard to be 100% as I still have that part of the cabinet masked off for painting)
35 = 598

width of the upper door is 620

Planning can start ...

I've got two wheels and two legs incl. mounting plates. I bought them new from Arcadeshop.de but since the derusting was so successful I decided to use the original stuff instead. Let me know if you're interested for a good price......I could bring them to EC Smiley


Why two legs only: it's hard to move a cab when it's sitting on 4 feet. I'd rather put it on two feet in the front and the two wheels in the back. So you can simply lieft the front and pull it towards you Wink
