Control Panel Overlay-Printing and installing

Post by godamongmen77 »

Well I need a control panel overlay for my MVS-U4/29 candy cab, I found one that Electricgrave makes here: http://www.neogeomvs.com/

My question is, has anyone printed these out themselves, or have you gone through a company? If so, what company? Also, did they cut out the holes for you, or did you have to do it yourself? I don't trust my hand cutting out holes, so I am looking for a company that will cut out the holes for me.

Any and all help appreciated.

Also looking for a memory card/headphone decal for the same candy cab, anyone know where I can get one? Thanks!

While I am on the subject, does anyone know how I can replace the plexiglass for the marquee? Mine is a 4 slot, and the 4th slot is cracked. I also need a new marquee, because the 4th slot has been cut off because of the broken plexiglass. I bought it like this, and now I need to fix it!

One last thing, how can I replace the lock for the marquee? Do I need to get a locksmith? Maybe some WD-40?

While I am asking, how do I get off the old overlay? It's a metal CP so would I just sand it, or use alcohol, or...? Also, how do I get off old decals?

thanks for the info. Does anyone know how I can get this made, or where I can buy one like it? I am looking for anything here. I contacted Mame Marquees but they have yet to respond.

Where abouts are you? I may be able to replicate the marquee for you.

people who bought from him seem to love is stuff. still, make sure to read up on his history and don't expect your artwork to be done within a few days.
Wanted: SNK Candy 18 spares. Mainly looking for a marquee holder & the "video games" sign.
