The parts i ordered at e-bay, two joysticks, 18 buttons and a minipac, here 's the link: http://cgi.ebay.nl/MINIPAC-ARCADE-CABINET-BUILDERS-KIT-No2-NEW-/390232464893?pt=UK_Video_Games_Coin_Operated_MJ&hash=item5adbaaddfd
The marquee is printed on photo paper and placed between two sheets of acrylic
the backside of the controllpannel, the buttons are a bit too close together, i had to alternate the dust washers to make them fit
now with the minipac and the wires connected
the front of the controllpannel
