Title: I modified my Arcade1up cabinet into a MAME cab

I've always wanted a Killer Instinct machine in the house. Unfortunately, I really don't have the room. The cabinets are also getting really expensive as time goes on and they become more scarce. Arcade1up's cabinets are not the best quality, but they are pretty sturdy. I decided to just go for it and modify it so I could have something close to an arcade in the house. I'm really happy with how it came out. I made a video showing the build.

Being able to easily turn it on and off was a must for me. I'd like to make it look like a KI in the near future. I'll definitely share if I do.

I found a company selling graphics kits for these cabinets. I've ordered them but its been almost a month and they still haven't arrived. I'm starting to get a little worried about it, they've been removed the website and I'm not getting replies from them. If anything, I may end up having to dispute the charge with my credit card.

The art showed up the day I complained to them! haha. It was Arcadegraphix.com but they were partnering with Escape Pod. It seems it was just a communication error, either way, everything showed up. I applied the art, its not exactly like the arcade but neither is the cabinet haha. The bezel isn't on in this shot, I may need them to reprint that. The pic isn't great but I'll post the video when I get it all done.
