    nice job on yours also....my next task is to hdd my unit. On my arcade the cd tray ejaects out of the top of the joystick platfor. I had to remote mount the reset/open buttons, you can see the buttons next to the sony emblem on the platform.

    Wow...that cabinet setup is awesome. Is this the Mortal Kombat Cabinet that you were talking about in the memory card thread?? I've got to say that it looks really good.

    Where are the R2 & L2 buttons, I saw L & R, have you implemented them some other way, just curious. Also how much does a cabinet as kick ass as yours cost not even considering all the man hours and modifications. That is something that I would love to do someday when I have my own home, I should probably learn a little more about electronics wiring and the like though.

    Anyway, bottom line - that is friggin amazing, you're my hero.

    Thanks guys...It took some time and effort but definately worth it...It originally was an ultimate mk3 machine that had severe water damage.i rebuilt the joystick end of the console( thats how i got the speakers in the platform) gutted the rest except the monitor and built a circuit board to be able to communicate with the monitor from the ps2 I had to find a speicial ps2 controller that i could even solder too it was a mess. I will get some more pics with her hood up before long.
