Working on my Arcade

Postby Chris Silver » Sat Jan 20, 2018 7:05 pm

I decided to tear out my cinema room and build a gameroom in my basement. It's a work in progress and I have room for 2 more pins. The short walls at the entrance need to come out and the 619-1 will be recessed in the DVD cabinet on a 45 degree to the room.

It might not be the best room but it's mine. :mrgreen:

I like a carpet where I can spill popcorn on it and no one notices. :)\

The carpet worked when it was a cinema room especially with four boys. Since I lowered the floor and took out the electrical console, the carpet is just laying there as a hodgepodge. It will be replaced when money permits with an arcade theme from the same manufacture.

Realistically Elektra, MGOW and Time Line are high up and financially feasible on my wish list. 2 empty spaces. I also need a good title EM after I rebuild blue-chip.

Chopping a wall and running wires later. 5:00am on a Sunday and I'm rebuilding the upper left playfield on Eight Ball Deluxe with a coffee to Queen.
