Anyone here bought a VEWLIX kit from KRAY?

I would say $400 is very reasonable for the prep-work associated with the cabinets. MDF is a huge PIA to paint. A lot of primer, a lot of sanding, a lot of bondo. Materials are cheap. He used automotive paint too (a requirement by me) which can be a bit pricey for good stuff that will last.

If you are in the DC/Northern VA area I have all of the stuff to paint (air compressor, spraygun, etc) and can help you out… if you provide a garage. I don’t have one in the rental house I am in. The house I own in Miami and Groton have one, but not here :(… it really limits what I can do!

If it makes you happy or anyone else happy by having an lcd for jamma who am i to tell them they are wrong. I was just giving a heads up to people who may not have that experience yet or planning to. I was just pointing out the cons which is tech assistance IMO.

As for painting cabs, i did my first one on my own & it was pain in the ass & turned out bad. The prepping alone took forever to do, so i decided to get the my 2 slims done by an auto guy too. I forget how much he charge but he was a bit pissed off on how much prep work it took to do. He also told me he wouldn’t do it again, especially for that price. He didn’t even do a good job. I should have done it myself.

So if you guys want a beautiful paint job cab, just let Kray do it…Very good pricing & looks amazing.

I just bought a new 32" TV to replace my the one that come with my kraylix. The problem is that the new TV has a very thin bezel and can almost fit though the opening. I’d like to get some ideas on how to mount this new monitor.<br>


#1261

I received some questions about how I installed my TV. Here’s what I did:<br><br><ul><li>I used a piece of white melamine cut to fit within the
arches of the cabinet. About 10" tall x 33" wide (I think that’s the
dimension).</li><li>Then drilled a standard VESA 100x100 mm set of holes into
it. I found measured the center of the board and stood off 50mm from the
center in the x and y direction of the center point and drilled the
holes. Imagine holes at the corners of a square that is centered on the
board. </li><li>To make it easy to mount to the frame I drilled 4 pocket holes on
the piece of melamine on either end so that I could get to them screws
from the back without any cosmetic damage. I then found some nice long
M8 screws that allowed me to put a few washers between the TV and the
board and bolt it together. </li><li>A buddy helped me align the TV/melamine board inside the cabinet to get it flush with the bezel and centered. Then I simply screwed the pocket screws in to hold it all together. <br></li></ul><p>Additional cost: $10. If you don’t have a pocket hole jig, add about $20 to that. If you don’t have a drill… you probably shouldn’t build one of these :)<br></p><br>

I’m going to buy a second control panel for my viewlix. I’ll make current control panel into the “silent version” with silent sticks and buttons for the late night sessions. I have an idea for the art that I would like to use for the second. I’m not sure if this is the right place to ask (if somebody could point me in the right direction), but I’d like somebody to create the artwork for me. I would like it to look like the Sega New Net City control panel.<br><br>http://i37.tinypic.com/547si1.jpg<br><br>I think I found the right thread for this question, but I’ll see if somebody from this thread can help me as well.<br><br>The NEW Official Arcade Stick Art Thread NO IMAGE QUOTING!<br><br><br>

Just a heads up, trying to replicate a New Net City will be pretty damn hard to do.  Seeing as how the artwork is printed out in silver foil.

Just a heads up for everyone. I installed the CPS2 system in my Kraylix and wanted to use the onboard RCA Q-Sound. I found a cheap 12V amp on amazon since the Q-Sound amps are extremely rare/expensive. Unfortunately, the AT style power supply fan translates a lot of noise throughout the cabinet which resulted in a lot of humming. To fix, I used a ground loop isolator, same thing used in Automotive applications to prevent alternator/generator whine. Works great. Probably a good idea to include one for any system, even if used with a PS3/XBOX setup that uses an external amp to drive the speakers. For a few bucks it cuts down on the noise significantly. If you go the JAMMA route in your cab like I did, a true Arcade power Supply probably will cut down the noise as well… so long as their is no fan in the system anywhere or you pull audio directly from the JAMMA edge.<br>


#1266

I also shot him an email with how I mounted my TV so that he might consider making it a standard piece that comes in the kit. I think its a bit more versitile than the blocks he includes. I guess we will see what he says!<br>

Here is the paper: <br><br>https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=JOq0jkt3TrI#!<br><br>Not sure where if they make a long enough version, but it exists. If you google “metallic inkjet paper” you can find a lot of it. I think you could get the design fairly easy and take it to Kinkos with your own paper and have them run it through their large format paper… if you can get it big enough. Or the alternative is, do the silver as just part of the picture. It won’t come out as shiny or very glossy… but the idea would be there.<br>

Can’t believe it’s already been over six months since I got my kit in the mail… this thing is taking forever to complete 100% haha. Just about everything is done except for the artwork, coin door and the custom usb selector/power harness I’m working on. I should have my art soon, a bud of mine runs a local print shop. He’s a bit of a flake though, told me it would be ready last week! I can’t complain, his work is top notch.

Thought I’d give you guys a sneak peek at my art, It’s based off rix9’s awesome work.


#1269

So im trying to order the happs coin door but for some reason the happs store dont want to show me how much is shipping…Anybody know another place to order the coin door?


#1270

eBay!

I was going to buy mine from happ yesterday but figured I’d shop around first. Saved me $5 on shipping compared to happ’s flat rate.


#1271

Is that the same size for Krays?


#1272

if it fits let us know!


#1273

I couldn’t order from the SuzoHapp site so i called them…I ended up getting the coin doors without the fake coinslots…Anyway, i ordered 3 of them but the funny thing is that they couldn’t tell me how much the cost of shipping will be…Seriously WTF, anyway im suppose to find out tomorrow the cost of shipping after they ship it haha, this is going to be a trip to see how much it will cost.
