Finally, I have painted the arcade machine (black) and got it back together.
Here are some pics of the first black coat going on.
Here are some pics of the arcade machine after the final topcoat went on. It took exactly 1 litre of black semi-gloss to do the two coats of black. It was really way too hot to have been painting.
And finally, here is a pic of it getting it’s first series of use in the “production” environment:
//TODO: Proper marquee lighbox reverse-printed on perspex
//TODO: Bezel to cover TV
//TODO: T-molding on base
//TODO: Holsters for light-guns
//TODO: Reinstall operating system, emulation software and get drivers for dual lightgun working
