Hidden controls:

Having a modular panel means that sometimes certain controls won't be available to control the frontend, etc. To get around this I put a small matrix switch on top of the cabinet.

Hacked power strip:

I really wanted to be able to turn *everything* on with just one switch. My cabinet, like most probably, has a switch up on top of the machine. I bought a cheap 6 prong power strip, took of the cover and soldered the switch inline with the power strip switch. Works great. Everything comes on, the marquee, computer, monitor, lamps, etc all from one switch. My Abit motherboard's default wasn't to allow re-powering after shutdown but I just changed it in the BIOS and it works perfectly.

Midway coin door decal:

I have a Pac Man coin door so I picked up a repro of the original decal.
