    I was just going to say, whatever WPC it's for... it's a widebody! So IJ or RS or STTNG would be my guess.

    Excellent work Steve!

    Looks like it might be for a NBXM ;)

    I'd be interested in finding out what a NBXM is....:D

    Anyhoo....



    The gap at the bottom is due to using a 5/8" bit for the dado and 1/2" ply for the floor. It will be filled before pickup.

    Nice work Steve!
    What's really interesting is the placement of the buttons.
    This build appears to have the SUPER BALL button placed on the right (like a prototype IJ).
    I wonder if this was a special request by the buyer?

    I'm definitely going to have to save myself some bondo work and try one of these cabs out for my upcoming projects.

    Are you using the orignal cab as a template?

    This one's based on a Twilight Zone, so I'm hoping that the superball button is being used. I haven't got an original cabinet to go off of here so it's based off some drawings I have from a builder down south.

    Luckily it's for a custom pin so I have a small amount of wiggle room with the interior design.

    Forgot about TZ. That's right. The button didn't move until after that game.

    I would wonder if this might be an option instead of re decaling my IJ? What would one of these for an IJ ready to install decals be and how hard would it be to swap the machines guts over? I am probably just being silly but curious.

    The cabinet would be $400.00. I try to discourage me doing the finishing as it ties up my shop for too long due to the fact that I haven't got separate paint facilities (and no one wants a cab that has been painted beside a table saw...:))

    It would be finished (gap filled and sanded - ready for sealant/paint) but that's as far as I could take it without charging for the shop downtime while it dries.

    Thanks for the interest!!

    Colin,

    Going this route saves a LOT of time and headache when it comes to prep, which is THE most important step in re-decaling a cab. Transferring everything over is really easy. (also doing it this way would be MUCH quicker as I can work on the cab without your game being in my shop until it's time to swap everything over) I will say going this route may cost you slightly more in the long run but not too much more as you can sell off the original cabinet once finished.

    I'd be up for doing it, doubtful that there's a cabinet near me for reference though.

    I have a Banzai if you want to measure it up Steve.
    Nice work on the widebody!

    You can measure my Banzai Run as well, if needed.

    This is great to know we have a local source for brand new replacement cabs otherwise the other alternative would be:

    http://www.letsplaypinball.com/cabinets.html

    But exchange, shipping, taxes, etc... would totally kill this.
