Hello All,

I have been looking at the VEWLIX kits here from KRAY and was wondering if anyone here has purchased one, and if they could please provide feedback.

Custom Vewlix

Thanks in advance.

    Very well done I must say.

    $535 with shipping including (for the Mad Catz TE version).

    (Can't do anything about the shipping cost. It is what it is! Unless you live in Texas and have a good size truck or fold down your sedan's second seat, how else are you gonna get this?)

    That's actually not a bad price when you think about it! Kit doesn't look like it'd be difficult to build up, either. If you can handle desks or bookcases, you can certainly build this up, too.

    MDF's not bad material. Sure, it takes some patience to paint but from what I hear it's a lot better than plywood (no creaking!) and holds up fairly well.

    If I had the inclination for this (arcade system set-up, MAME, etc.) AND the space, a stained wood like might not look half bad. It would be a neat-looking cabinet!

    It was $180 to ship from Texas to California.

    Well, Kray said $185 for anywhere US.

    I bought one from Kray about 2 weeks ago. Kray has provided great customer service since day one. For those of you wondering about the quality of the cabinet, it is awesome. I am getting ready to paint it. The build quality is superb as well as his customer service. If you are able to get it fully painted, go for it. It is alot of work and takes up alot of time. I will be posting pictures of it soon in a whole new thread to show you guys the progress. Kray is the MAN!!!

    I've been emailing with him as well, I'm about ready to pull the trigger, was waiting to see how the pack shipped and was assembled.....

    ONE100BILL, if you get a chance, I'm sure a few members would love to see your progress and credit given to Kray for the product =)

    I emailed Kray a few days ago since I saw his Craigslist post. I told him about Shoryuken & he said he'll post here soon. Not sure he wants me to post his price quote or not but lets just say it's very reasonable for the lower half Vewlix-style cabinet painted (yes, he paints it also for an additional charge). Thankfully, he's only ~45-mins away from me, woohoo!!! As soon as I pull the trigger on a VLX, I'm getting this bad boy!
    Current fav's the Hori RAP4 VLX! Like the MickeyD's commercial..."I'm lovin it"

    All the kit will be made out of MDF only.
    Shipping and handling is $185 anywhere in the US.

    If you guys can afford a full painted one I would highly recommend it unless you are familiar with body filler, sanding, priming and painting. It is a pain in the behind. I would've paid double just avoid the work. Either way I will post pictures hopefully today. I highly recommend him if you are looking to buy one and the quality of his product and customer service is superb.

    I was planning on building a vewlix for a mame machine, but if these kits are legit I might go this route.

    Hey Butteroj,

    What do you mean vlx lower? I saw a cabinet on youtube which just supports the vlx. Does he make that one? I would love to buy one.

    Please tell me he does. I'd like to buy one so bad. LOL!

    ZENBLASTER,

    That is the TV I bought (Panasonic TC-L32X1) to go with vewlix kit I ordered from Kray. I heard lag was very minute compared to other LCD's. I ended up paying $288.00 brand new/open box after they applied some coupon.

    Hey everbody this is Kray I'm the one from TX selling the kit. I was planning to put them on the forum but was too busy. Let me see if I can answer some of your questions here...

    It's $800 for a painted cabinet but if I paint it I have to ship it fully assembled because of the bodyfiller. I use them to make the arch and side seamless. Once it?s painted, it?s not possible to take them apart again therefore I have to ship it fully assembled. Shipping a fully assembled cabinet is very expensive therefore I only do them local here. The cabinet will accept most 32" standard LDC. If your TV is bigger than these deminsions it won't fit 32x4x21.5x.

    Yes I'm working on the VLX stand it will be similar to singlongkuen but I will have the bevel side legs and control panel to give it more of a vewlix looks.

    I'm still woriking on it and haven't decided on the final price yet. Maybe somewhere between $250-$300 painted. I'll let you know as soon as I finish building my first one.

    Not bad. Mine would have to be unpainted since I live in CT.

    You can fit stock viewlix panels on the control panel? Like the ones you can buy from akihabara shop will fit right no no problem?

    Yes, I will still be around...

    I have to admit...Painting is a pain in the butt due to all the long preparation (sanding, priming, etc...but it will pay off if you do it right!!

    I've seen alot of DIY that paint their own cabinet that looked really good!!
