Great work, toyed with the idea of doing one of these myself but struggled to get good quality drawings to work from.

Like the look of this, have recreated nicer art work for mine if you wanted a better art work than whats available. You are welcome to larger artwork file if needed. 

the ones available have a huge amount of contrast clipping in the clouds and Raiden's coat.

so i might have found myself a old 4:3 25" CRT TV - just waiting on confirmation

Looking to get the coin door sorted also







Thinking of a JBL GX-A602 AMP & JBL-STAGE-602E twin speakers for the sound.

Is your cab hollow? That is to say normally the coin door would go on and there'd be a shelf inside that separated the two halves - will it just be for show so doesn't necessarily need the actual mech and coin box?
