MKG-RC1 (Driving Simulator scratch build log) - Page 13

post #121 of 228
Absolutely Brilliant build. Wish i could make something like that.I love what you did with the pedals and the brake lights. Attention to detail makes projects like yours look good.

I have a Bally Space Invaders pinball machine imported from America (shame its not working at the moment ).

(these pics are not mine, thats why they are awful)



You need to watch that Samsung monitor. My dad bought 3 and we had to take 2 of them back after under a years worth of use because of problems with the touch buttons and the monitor would flicker and randomly switch off.

Cant wait to see the finished result!

Nice pinball machine! What's wrong with it? Is it the angle of the pic or is the playfield a bit smallish (top to bottom)?

I've got a Williams 'Big Guns" pinball and its awsome. Its working about 90%. One of the lockable cannons just spits the ball right back out instead of holding it.

I'll keep an eye on the monitor. I haven't even ever turned it on as of yet.

I also can't wait till it's done

Yes the dusty work phone was blocking some playboy centerfold goodness
There are girly posters all over our breakroom and I had to be careful when snapping shots

Moar updates!

I brought home some more finished pieces today from work. There are 2 that just need a little lovin and clearcoat, and the other two need stripes re-painted, and a couple stickers on the big side one. I cant wait for the paint to be done so I can finish this bad-boy! I plan on painting the stripes, clear-coat, and applying the stickers this Friday or Saturday. Pieces should be home on Monday or so. One week to go (give or take)!

I put the buttons, cig lighter, and ashtray into the dash. The green ring on the cig lighter will be illuminated.


The buttons are old style arcade, and use cherry reds (my favorite)




Installed! notice the stealthed ashtray below the buttons- the buttons are- white-power, red-reset

Sorry to say, I have been smoking a long time and often smoke while gaming.
Do as I say and not as I do and DONT SMOKE KIDS! dont smoke cigs either...

I also glued in the left and right speakers into the speaker panel. The rear surrounds are just mounted on the back panel behind the seat. The sub is under the seat. The speakers were a tight fit but I hot glued them anyways with some industrial hot glue.





Heres the pretty side

Thank you!

Here's a picture of the lower rear panel with the tail-lights sitting in their holes these will light up when you step on the brakes



One other thing I got done today.... The foot control panel looked so drab on the backside, so I thought I would spruce it up a bit.

.

here it comes...

oh wait! thats the front, not the back doh!

here we go- Turbo-Charger!







This race-car should go even faster with the extra hoursepower this turbocharger puts out

This project no longer feels out of place on the OCN forums.
Thats an evga p55-le board, 4 GB of Mushkin ridgebacks, and hiding under the CM v6 is a core i3-540

I have more goodies to go with it, but I need some support for the pci slots so the cards dont flop around. I was able to just plug the intake fans in the foot panel directly to the mainboard
I just drilled small holes into the plywood and screwed the standoffs directly into the wood. The holes I drilled were quite a bit smaller than the threads, and they actually hold pretty good considering there is only a bit more than 1/8' of thread on the standoffs. I may put some adheasive around where the standoffs meet wood to be on the safer side though since this board will be getting some additional weight
