I had an Asteroids cabinet that was really rough. Completely gutted, no back, coin door had been broken out of the front. But the side art was still decent, too good to dump. So, I decided to build an Asteroids cabinet! I built drawers and shelves everywhere I could, shoved a 19" tv in it, hooked up power and filled it up with vintage game consoles.
The control panel area is a flat panel to hold consoles, it also hinges up for access.
There is power and A/V jacks mounted on panel for easy access.
It holds more than a dozen old systems and cables./p>
No wasted space.
