My DK Cabinet Build
« on: March 24, 2016, 07:29:24 PM »
I thought here would be a good place to start posting up things im collecting for my DK cabinet build :)

In case you dont know, my name is Shane and i live in Australia. i have been playing Donkey Kong on and off since around 2012. But in the last 7 months i have started getting a bit more serious about it.
My Current PB is 457k.
My Current Goal is to get a KillScreen with at least 860k and claim the Aussie Title  <stirpot> <Allen>

Im going to be building a DK cabinet from scratch as they are very hard to come by in Australia not like over in the US where it seems like you can just about get one from every street corner. :P

I just bought a Donkey Kong PCB off KLOV and its just arrived last week. Heres some photos of it.

I also have a 20inch CRT that i will beable to use. (needs a chassis made up for it still)

i have ordered a couple other things from mikes arcade that hopefully will arrive in the next couple weeks and i will post up some more things.

heres a list of things i still need to get

marquee

control panel overlay (would be happy to have a whole original control panel if someone has one spare)

buttons, blue and orange etc.
monitor brackets

if you have anything else laying around that i havent mentioned let me know just incase.
