The front part has a hinge so i can keep a mouse and a keyboard under it
I used a €10,- speakerset, i positioned it like that so the volume knob would be at the front
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 iconic Atari 2600
Added the Atari 5200 for good measure, not much of an upgrade from the 2600, (neither is the 7800) but i wanted it on my cab anyway.
Time for a new paint job
Finnished the paintjob, still not great, but better. Now looking for some side/Bezel art
Everything running fine again.
