Home Arcade Teardown

Spent the weekend pulling the old monitor, wires, and controls from arcade panel. The arcade panel is being sent to a local machine shop to add a button hole on either side of the joystick. I was able to buy an additional "Gauntlet" arcade panel for $5.00 at the same time we bought the arcade This will provide us with the extra buttons we need as well as some backup sticks. After this panel is returned from the machinist, we'll peel the old "Jungle King" sticker off, and clean it down to a flat black.

This arcade will become a Propeller/Mame arcade allowing us to play Parallax Propeller games as well as arcade classics.
