    And the control panel is wired up.

    i cannot find the joystick knobs anywhere! I mean anywhere!

    has been a lot of work and I can’t feel my fingers after this much crimping and soldering :(

    We need a POP front end signature!!! Or no?

    Well I pressed an extra zero when I ordered these!

    So instead of 10 I ordered 100. Looks like I’ll be making a few displays for other people

    I think by now i could have bought 3 or 4 icb’s  :wacko:

    Dont tell the wife as she thinks making my own is way cheaper. LMAO!!!

    anyways here is a printout on blueprint paper(cheap) just to test fit before it goes to real printing and color correcting

    I will say again this is way more involved then i ever would have thought so i can see why nobody has every finished a DIY ICB. This will be finished and for test purposes will make another to see if it goes much quicker but first things first, get one built.

    Ok been a while since I had any time to work on this project but real work has been keeping me busy.

    So I had my first test vinyl overlay printed in a clear protected vinyl so quality won’t be issue but my colors are a bit to bright! Should be easy fix so for test I went ahead and installed it on one of my 7 test playfields I made :(

    i had printer guy cut out the 10 scoring holes using my cnc design so I had to cut all the rest out by hand but after doing that once I think I will have him cut all the holes as the cnc file has to match as this test proved. I was a bit off center laying vinyl down but really not to shabby!

    in this set of pictures notice the display pcb and back side cnc milling!

    Next will have printer guy print 15 percent darker or so but really hard to say what is right!?

    Well I had a new place make vinyl and color is a bit better but somehow they lost detail and they cut all the holes off center. Getting very frustrating at this point! I may just purchase a damn plot printer thingy and do it myself.

    compair these two and let me know what you think first one is new closer to correct color and second is last weeks neon-ish one is loss of detail worth color

    added a side by side photo

    Here is another angle you can see closest one is newer closer color and farther one is the neon like colors that show more detail

    im at a loss as to why they can’t make it closer? It prints so different then it looks on my photoshop
