Anyone here built a bartop?

Have you vinyl wrapped you arcade? Where did you buy wrap?

Don't tell me weecade or ebay I need it custom size as I have a bigger monitor than most of the kits.

    Good for you on making it. Got any tips for people that want to build one?

      follow one of these instruction guides

      Not really its my first build,so I might run into a couple of hicups. The main mistake I've made so far is not using min of 12mm MDF for all panels. I only used 12mm for the sides and 9mm everywhere else as its wide and wanted it as light as possible. But this also made me waste more time on thinking & making brackets to support

    You tried a Signwriter?

    •  

      This will likely be extremely expensive (in my experience with dealing with local signwriters) - but OP has said he needs custom, I guess!

      Yeah as johnno said they are expensive, I did an online quote with a sign writer company I think it came to around $180 for just the sides

    Ring pinball shops most of them restore old pins and may be able to put you on the right path from their suppliers.

      Thanks guys but I think I found someone who can do it at reasonable price, found him through one of the arcade forums,I will message him once Ive finished bartop and ready to wrap

    Good job on deciding to build one. I'm also going to eventually going to build one, when i have the time and resources to do so. One of the major things i think anyone is going to have is what style, control layout and cabinet size, then you have what kind of control switches, monitor type, sound system, Marquee, lighting, etc.

    Decisions, Decisions XD
