Then two layers of paint.

The colour is beige, looks white on the picture though.


Time for mounting the speakers. Not the best speakers, but they will do for now.

The fluorescent light is mounted after the speakers. It is a 12 volt work light for cars that has been modded. 



The amplifier is bought on Ebay. It's 2 x 8 watt RMS and runs on 12 volt. Perfect for this project and more than powerful enough for this project, that's for sure!


As you can see there is not much more space than needed. I really tried to make this cabinet as small as possible.

Motherboard and PSU is mounted.



I made these aluminium mounts for the hard disk. I needed something small, so I had to make it myself.

Rest of the space is needed for the monitor and control panel. Tight fit, but everything is there.




Big foot. Large rubber feet mounted.



Control panel for on/off, 2 x usb and audio installed.
The other side of the panel. As you can see, it's a standard pushbutton I have used for power button to the motherboard.
Finally the monitor is installed :D

I made a lot of scratches to the cabinet installing this monitor, but that's ok, I will paint all the scratches when it is completely finished.

You just have to accept that ;)

If you decide to make your own MAME cabinet using my drawings, please feel free to make a donation,  as I'm trying to raise enough money to make a new up-right cabinet, that's hard to do as a student.
