My new MAME project is coming along

Last night I finished the control panel and added a mame marquee. Wired the coin box to accept quarters as well as a button to add credits for my Cheaper friends :)

So far there is a joystick and track ball and the light gun is being added tonight.
That should get me through the fighting games (joystick)
Golden tee, Arkinoid, etc etc (track ball)
Time crisis, T2 and so on with the light gun.

The main goal now is trying to figure how to include a wheel in to this as well. I love me some Iron man off road racing.

I do have a steel series SRW-1 wheel that works like a Wii controller so no mount would be needed. It also has paddles for shifting and a gas and brake flipper.But I am not sure on it as I think It would feel kind of hoakey, standing with a wheel freely in your hands.

Any thoughts as to adding a wheel that would clip on and store on the side of the cab?

The pc is finished and ready as well. I am using a 23 inch monitor mounted vertical and of course A slick front end for mame.

Ill design and print the vinyl for the cab over the weekend, I Just haven't came up with a good theme.

Check to be sure but iron man off-road I believe is a 360 degree game, not sure how playing that game would be possible with a wheel that probably simulates 270 degrees.

The wheel is set to emulate up to 560 degrees with an adjustment dial on the front side so that part isn't an issue. just holding it freely not attached to anything would be the weird part in my opinion.
