Looking nice everyone. :D

That Pepsi scoreboard is sweet, I keep looking for a 70's Pepsi soda machine at a good price.

**Update**

I might be able to join the club anyway. do you guys think a Tekken 2 cab (in working condition and inspected) for $120 is a good deal?

Pretty much any cab with a working monitor is worth at least $200 IMO.

I got around to replaicing the PSU in my neo cab, it got rid of the "noise" in the video completely :)

Buy it if it works man. You can always throw any game in there, sounds ready for all the 4 button fighters. :D

I know the cab for pigskin is not original, but I only paid $50 for it.

Don't worry I stole the high score board idea from the arcade forums. mine came from ebay.

player 1 is on the right, player 2 is on the left. the front controls are for games like the simpsons, tmnt, street fighter, etc.

the walls are panels, you can buy them at lowes. I had plain walls, felt the brick was more old arcade feel.

Rydon, that's badass

I wasn't able to get that cab for $180. :( I did the the second best though. Picked up a copy of this.

Be patient man, it took me weeks (if not months) of combing craigslist etc., daily before I found a cab worth buying. Save your money up, and something will work out. In the mean time, read all about transportation, maintenance, the JAMMA standard, etc. It'll save you a lot of time and headaches when you do get that first cab.
