    My roommates SF3 cabinet. Not sure what it originally started out as. Has some issues (sound will cut out and screen gets fuzzy after playing for awhile) needs new sticks and buttons but works well for the most part.

    So I am currently working on a Dynamo z back (probably turning into MAME cab but probably going to be only used for FIghtcade). It has the old metal sf II control panel in it. I think it was a hyper fighting cab, anyone ever try to drop sanwas in the control panel? I know the 30mm is too big for the standard american 28mm, but on a scale of 1 - "you're better off building your own control panel out of wood". How doable is it to widen the holes? Can it be done with a file or is dremel nessecary?

    Sorry these arent the best pix of the cabi, but its all the pix I have atm. America Sega STV cab running the Darksoft multi cart. Changed the sticks over to JLFs n buttons over OBSCs. Had to have dust washers 3D printed to cover the gaping holes left behind by the stock Happ hardware.

    The MVS conversion cabi still needs to have the CP redone, so it just sits dorment.

    Does anyone here have any experience with "OK Baby" candy cabs? I've never heard of them before. Did a Google search and most people say they're decent clones at most. Found a couple of them for sale close to me for $500 without a monitor.

    Welcome to the internet. God help you if you have an opinion.

    I should start keeping written letters in sealed envelopes when I go to tournaments. If i get bodied, I give them one, and when they open it up it says "fuk u"

    I agree with @Darksakul

    $500 for an average candy without a monitor is too overpriced. Of course everything is relative to your particular area. There are some areas of the US for example that is hard to find a candy cab whereas if you're close to Cali or New York they're a lot more common.

    Like if you don't care about getting a Candy cab, American style cabs in reasonable condition can be gained for cheap.
    You got to do your foot work, your homework on this one. Check your local classified listings, Yellow pages, check Craigslist, ask local businesses that deal with Arcade Cabs (even if its a pizza join or laundry mat with a cabinet).

    You might need to borrow or rent a truck when it comes to the time to buy the Cab. You might have to drive for a few hours to get to your location. Very few places do deliver. Ask to see the cab in action if possible.
    Even then you are looking into doing some cleaning and repair work.

    Like Frank Said each geographical location is different, like me near Baltimore there plenty of opportunities for cabs.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm familiar with looking for and buying cabs as I already own several and one of them is a candy cab which are like unicorns in my area. I paid 750 plus shipping for a new astro city that did have a monitor a few years ago. So I was gauging the price compared to that. The ok baby is only a 2 hour drive from me. I've been wanting another candy cab badly so I was surprised to even see one so close. Lol
    I know they're way cheaper in places where they're more common like socal where they're only like a few hundred bucks or less.

    Just recently had my cabs at Animazement 2016 and CEO 2016.

    and pics from CEO:

    I had all the candy cabs with the Neo Mega Shock marquees, the Gold Neo Geo, KI2, Marvel Super Heroes, Hokuto No Ken AW. All the rest of the cabs seen are from Wedoca or Arcade Impact.
    "Comebacks are fine as long as I'm the one doing them. Otherwise, they are evidence of a broken, poorly balanced game and it's all because of poor netcode and in-game lag due to poor port optimization and it was a terrible matchup and they need to patch the game and I should have won that and why does anyone even play this awful, fraud friendly game."

    now if i can just figure how to get the marquee off to change the light... no bolts on top and bottom bracket wont come off when screws are removed
    Is it the joystick, the buttons, or my execution? The world may never know. But it's proably the lag ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
