    Hi Guys,
    Pretty much the thread title :D

    I’m looking at getting An 80’s original,
    and also possibly an original Space Invaders board (not the machine unfortunately).

    Awesome, is that enclosure designed for an arcade board or did you custom drill and mount the controls/ports/sockets etc.?

    Just not game to cut out the D connectors for joysticks properly.
    The enclosure is from Jaycar.

    Thanks :)
    It would get expensive to do this for a number of games.
    The hardware was almost twice the price I paid for the board!
    I do want to do a couple more though.

    Looks like the next one will be Terra Cresta (1985).
    A game I payed 40 cents for in a shop as a kid.
    Not really an all time favourite like Gaplus, but got this one cheap.
