Title: My first Arcade cab (at last)
Post by: zapiy on September 23, 2016, 15:03:52 PM
Just collected my first Cab, well chuffed, it needs work but its a perfect size and has enough issues for me to get my teeth into.

Buzzing at the moment, it has an original Centuri Phoenix PCB, I will get new side art and tidy it up in general, add a multigame board and just enjoy being an arcade machine owner..

Looks good, Id be surprised if the screens not rotatable. My 19" cab allows the screen to be rotated horizontally or vertically. Did you get it off UKVAC? Muddymusic should be able to do you some decently priced repro side-art.

It was on ebay but I was winning the bid, offered £150 and wallop it was mine lol.

Yeah I have approached muddymusic as he has some for sale at the moment.  I might get some besoke RVG Hi res images of GF and maybe do a bespoke RVG one and take it to events lol..

Very nice! The cabinet looks in good condition. The three button setup is really perfect for a vertical cabinet. Looking forward to seeing more on this. Also I PM'd you just now on an idea.
