    Yeah i just want the template w/ the red Vewlix overlay & marquee so i can take it to the store & print it out for my slims...The slim is a different layout though as you can see has the start button at the end & i only have 6 buttons...Let me know if you can help me out...

    *edit*
    I bought one of those stools the white one but the rest was sold out. Do you have a site that has them in stock?

    i just got the template for the slim from Kray. give me a night or 2 and I'll see what I can do.

    Is there any way to run one of these in an arcade with ae 2012? Can you lock the controls or something until the customer puts money in it?

    I know Arcade UFO has console games in cabinets, you might check with them to see how it's done. I'm not sure it's legal though.

    Im pretty sure its possible as i remember back in the day there were dreamcast arcade cabs...I think they used timers though...It was called MGCD or jammacast i believe...

    There is an xbox 360 timer board here

    This probably will work if your cabinet is already jamma ready or you have an arcade cabinet...The only problem would be the controls as i think jamma only has 3 or 4 buttons available...

    Just heads up i bought one of these awhile back for my modded xbox...The controls were buggy as hell & picture quality wasn't that great...Plus im pretty sure it is illegal....I think if you want to use this as a business is better to just rent out the cab per hour basis...Its probably the easiest way to do business with it...

    Hmm.Those converters are interesting. Sucks the controls are so bad. I want one of these 2 seater kraylix cabs to put an ae setup in, but I need to find a way to run them on a coin basis. All the arcade machines are run that way in the arcade,so I don't know how charging on an hourly basis for just one machine would work. I was hoping there would be a way to leave the machine on the arcade mode select screen with the controls locked until they pay.That way the 2nd played would just have to pay and hit start,just like a true arcade machine.

    Anyone had to paint their own kraylix cabinet, if so what type of grade sand paper did you use?

    Like i said though, what you're trying to do is illegal...But if you charge an hourly rate for the machine is kind of like a loop hole...You're pretty much renting out your equipment for an hour. Kind of like those computer shops charge for lan gaming...Also i really wouldn't recommend have a vewilx cab out on location, you're better off w/ candy cabinet that is more durable for heavy use...

    Can you have an xbox setup in a candy cab? And can you set up it up fairly easy?

    Cabinets aka half slim Vewlix arrived 2 weeks ago. Everything came in great condition. Kray's work is truly exceptional and the level of customer service is unmatched. His cabinets should be the new standard for all tournaments.

    Still need to purchase the coin doors.

    Here are some Iphone pics (sorry for the meh quality):

    Are you planning to have a supergun hooked up to this for ST?

    you start with 80 grit followed by 220-300 grit. you need to bondo first before sanding. then apply primer. sand the primer with 220 as needed. apply color coats. sand again as needed. apply clear coat. buff for mirror finish. that's the simple version

    Thanks aminthemachine. I'm having the cabinet painted by someone. Is it better to paint it while it's still apart or put together? As far as the sanding goes I'll be doing it myself.

    i am doing all the sanding/prep work and the painting while having it seperated.

    You all should try Krylon Xmetals. That stuff is the sexiest paint Ive ever used on MDF and Plastics. Its like a combo acrylic dye and paint.

    Prepping went extremely well and painting is going smooth as well. Finished priming yesterday and started on white coat. I'll put some pics up when I get home from work in the next hour.

    Pics look great man. Are you just doing white? Did you use automotive paint and what's the model of your spray gun (devilbiss finishline flg 4 possibly)? I'm planning to do black and red for my cab. I'm in the midst of buying the necessary paints needed.

    The whole set was on ebay for 69.99 with free shipping. You can actually get a 2 gun set for around 40 but I would recommend getting the 4 piece set because it comes with a priming gun, base gun, touch up mini gun, and the regulator. Here's a link to the one I bought

    Depending on the size of your air compressor you can get gravity guns or regular. I got gravity because my brother in law has a smaller compressor so gravity works better with it.

    Yes I used automotive lacquer paint. I am doing my cabinet white and orange. I picked up 2 quarts of primer. If you aren't familiar with painting all that much I would get 3 quarts. 1 quart of white, 1 quart of orange, and 2 quarts of clear coat. The base coat shoots thinner so you don't use as much as you do of the primer/clear coat. I used Duplicolor ready to shoot paint that requires no thinning or mixing. Just stir it up good, pour in gun and you are good to shoot. They run 24.99 a quart for primer, base and clear. I can't recall the model name of the guns I got but I linked them in the post above. I linked the paint I use below. You can pick them up at any automotive store (Autozone, advanced autoparts, O'Riely). I just glad I only need 1 quart of orange as I was only able to locate 1 quart locally in Houston.

    That's the brand and how the can looks. They all have the same layout just with different colors. Primer and Clear Coat say it in big letters on the can.

    Here's an update after today's session. I got out of work early so instead of 2 hours of sunlight Shawn and I had about 4 to work with. We got a lot accomplished today. Finished all of the white base coat and the orange, and got 2 coats of clear on all pieces. I added the pics that were taken today to my album. I'll link it again if you want to check them out. We are both busy this weekend so that last 2 coats of clear will be applied next Wednesday and after it drys over night we will hit it with the buffer to give it that nice polished mirror finish. I'll have it back home by next Thursday. Ordering the last of my parts on Wednesday (pcbs, white buttons, wires and fans). Wiring and all will keep me busy most of the weekend until I can buy a tv in 2 weeks. With everything staying on schedule the arcade will be up and running in 2 weeks. Here's the link for the new pics.

    Started working on my Kraylix last weekend. It has been a challenge especially first time working with bondo! That stuff dries really quick and has been a nightmare to work with. Working on my primer currently followed by sanding and hopefully my first round of Valspar High Gloss Lacquer soon. I am following the guide on the forums to get the polished look.

    Would you mind listing which compressor you're using with your guns? After looking at your pics it seems to be working out really well. Also I don't know if you can answer this but if I decided to use metal flake paint or introduce metal flakes into whichever paint loaded into the gun; would it still work? As in, actually distribute and not become clogged?

    I was going to originally use the candy coat paint which has the metal flakes in it but decided to go with regular automotive lacquer. I remember Kray telling me he uses the normal lacquer. I'm not sure if the gun would get clogged or not but the best advice I can give it clean your gun every time you take a break longer than 5 minutes. I would recommend hitting a few coats and letting dry for 45mins-1 hour, and clean your gun while you wait. Also, use lacquer thinner and not regular paint thinner. As for the air compressor, I want to say it's a 4 or 6 gallon. But I would recommend a bigger one than that. We are doing great with ours but it's constantly running.
