    Hey all, I’ve been working on this cab for a couple months now, and I’ve still got a few things to do, but I thought I’d post the progress so far…

    I picked up a pretty rough Gottlieb “Bad Girls” from a guy on Craiglist for cheap. The power and lights worked, but that’s about it, no boards, severed cabling, etc.. and since I kind of like the “speakers on top” thing and the weird shaped backbox, I thought it would be a cool addition to my mini arcade.

    Probably the thing that’s the most different about this build and others I’ve seen is the size of the playfield TV. This is a standard width cab, so normally people put 37″-40″ playfield monitors in. This one is a 42″ that I bought in hopes that it would slide right in, but in the end I had to route out more than I wanted to. There’s only about an 1/8 of an inch of wood remaining, so I had to cut a piece of steel and and affix it to the rear of the cabinet on both sides to make it more secure (pictured). Now it’s solid and the full edge to edge look of the monitor is sweet.
    The backbox speakers are an older set of Infinity outdoor speakers that I ripped apart and dremeled.

    Playfield – LG 42″
    Backglass – LG 28″
    DMD – “best buy” brand, whatever that’s called 17″
    PC – i5, 8gb RAM, GTX 750ti

    Things left to do:
    Coin Door
    Decide whether or not to have vinyl made for the sides (or just leave it 80’s style :))
    Get lights working
    Maybe re-purpose a couple knockers from the original playfield?

    There are a couple pics at the bottom of some other projects from the past year, including my original attempt at making a mini vpin cab from scratch.. learned a lot on that one.

    Thanks for looking!
    Ryan
