    Posted: 26 October 2017 at 8:46pm
I've not yet applied any custom monitor bezels to my Dino King conversions - so far I've got away with re-using the Sega ones (and some obtained from others!). But .. my projects are slowly moving on...
While I've seen clear repro's, they're not as thick as the original bezels, and not quite as sturdy.

I've looked into getting a closer reproduction of the Sega versions made up
- they are 5mm thick
- have screw holes in the correct locations to match the Dino King cabinet
- have a 1mm chamfer around the front face, just like the originals
- the arch curve at the top matches the metal support bracket at the top of the cabinet too.

Here's how an initial one I've had made up looks on my Wonderboy Dino King conversion (apologies for not removing the protective film from both sides at this point - you'll just have to put up with the cloudy look!)

You can see a page with higher resolution photos here.




I'm looking to see if I can get a group buy together to bring down the costs of these.
If I can get 20x made up, they'd come in at £32 each, including UK postage.
Euro / Worldwide shipping would be extra at cost:

to Sweden: +£12 for a single bezel, or +£18 for a package of two

Actually, put me down for 4 in total, I plan on getting two more Kings so would want two more bezels. :D

Do you know anyone who can make the CPs with custom button configs?

Crikey, we are getting very close to 20x now!

Yep I have three of virtvic's panels now - all two player jobs. They are very nice indeed.
The metal panels are from a time long ago so no longer available. They were rusty but cleaned up with a bit of work.

I could possibly get the same plastics place to do something like that.

The only issue is that vic's panels are about 4-5mm thick, so you could have quite a thickness of 'stuff' on your CP!
Vic's also have bolt holes in them for the joysticks, so the bolt and button holes would need to match exactly through both metal and the plastic layer. As they are all custom too, it might be a case of supplying the plastic shape with outer screw holes, but leaving people to drill their own holes for buttons.. it's a tricky one.

Personally I'll be using thick, hardwearing textured vinyl CPO's.

I've got the template ready with button and bolt cutouts so can put any artwork on them.

Probably worth sticking a photo of the new textured CP vinyl up here I'd say.

So things are getting pretty close to having 20x folk up for this.
I will be contacting everyone once I have one more person confirmed.

I was planning on putting reverse printed vinyl on the back side of my bezels, to replace the default 'orange' area on the Sega design, but Muddy has been talking about being able to print directly to the acrylic in the new year.
Given everyone will come up with designs at their own pace, it'll be up to us individually to send any plastics to Muddy when ready. So the fresh-from-factory plastics will be sent directly to everyone on the list.
