This is Soooooooooo Cool! I'm having flashbacks myself. biggrin.gif

The last sit down game I played was with my grandson a couple of years ago (Jurassic Park w/ 2 pistols). I guess some of us will always be young at heart. wink.gif

Another creative wonder Bob! cool.gif I'll bring a roll of quarters when it's finished (And a 12 pack). wink.gif

Thanks guys!

Well I got some progress pictures smile.gif I cut up some plywood strips at a 22 1/2 degree angle and after alot of scribing and fitting, heres the result!

dscn0292c.jpg

dscn0293v.jpg

I also screwed in some rails to prevent the monitor bezel and the pedal panel from moving. I still want to box in the shifter on the left side and the bottom. Then I think I am about ready to break it all down for painting and applying the diamond plate for the base. I also have to find the tail lights that I bought long ago for this project and get those cut in on the backside of the cabinet.

For paint, I bought a couple cans of 'Hemi' orange engine paint. I am going for a Dukes of Hazzard theme with the 01 on the sides and some racing stripes on the front, top, and back of the cabinet. I also bought some additional t-moulding to wrap the edges of the right side panel of the cabinet. I'm going to have to buy another can of black paint for the inside.

I've still got quite a ways to go but it coming along. I like the old dash better, with the gauges and all, but since I had to go around the wheel housing, there isn't as much room on the new one. I might just leave this one plain, or I might not. I will have to think about it-

Happy New Year and be safe tonight cheers.gif

*drools* This makes me want to build a racing sim for my Xbox 360 and Forza 3.

Hey guys-
I thought I would post some more pictures of the little bit of progress that happened yesterday. I dug around and found the little led tail lights, a couple Ford emblems, salveged the switch that I need to attach to the break pedal to light up the tail-lights, and gathered up my diamond plate for the base.

I needed to break the case completely down to start diamondplating the base.

The first thing to come out was the 5.1 reciever, followed by the monitor (had to remove 3 wood holding strips) and the monitor bezel. Then I removed the top speaker panel by removing four allen bolts.

Next to come out are the dash and shelf that it attaches to and the pedal panel.

dscn0295s.jpg

Next I slide out the upper-rear windowed panel, remove the lower shelf, and lower-rear panel, and the rear cross-member.

dscn0294zk.jpg

The sides are now only attached to the base. I recruit my girlfriend to hold them while I remove the bolts with a nut-driver on my drill. Sides removed-

Now, I flip the base on its side to remove the nuts/washers that hold down the seat/subwoofer base. I also have to remove the wiring to make working on the base easier as I will be taking it outside to cut the diamond plate to size. Heres a picture of the bottom of the base of the cabinet. It's pretty stout and there are heavy-duty castors that extend about 1/4" below the plywood surround so the case can be moved when fully assembled. The rear castors are the swivel type, while the front are fixed to prevent the case from moving too much while getting in.

I cut some wires that I will have to resolder. there are quick disconnects on the board for the subwoofer, but the hole in the base was too small for the connectors to push through. I have since enlarged the hole for the wiring. Here is a picture of the bottom of the seat base with the subwoofer under the seat. It's not a super loud sub, but it gets the job done for this application (small semi-enclosed space) -
