Custom built retro arcade cabinet with custom graphics, light up marqee and loads of cool games go play. My wife and daughter asked me to make this over the holiday break and it took me right at two weeks to complete working on it bits at a time.

  • What a cool project! It looks just like an arcade game. Did you add a slot for quarters? :)

    • Thanks! I do have a coin slot but I have not added it yet. The one I found was silver and I’m still looking for an old school black one to add.

  • Epic! I've been looking to get into a project just like this, I already have a screen and the RetroPi built out / loaded up. Where did you find those controllers?
