    ok so a few years back i bought one of those $20 plug and play retro arcade games that plug into the tv via the av port. any how I played it for a bit then stuck it in a box and left it till now.

    So my idea is to take an old crt tv and make an arcade cabinet. then mounting game and the joy stick and buttons on the shelf at the front.

    Now my problem is getting the game on the shelf. I could just make a hole for it to slot into but idealy I'd like to pull the whole thing apart and mount them all seperatly. I've got a pretty vague idea of how to do this but I realy need to find some tutorials to give me a better understanding.

    Any help would be great. thanks. :D

    Do you have any photos of the machine or inside it?

    You probably won't be able to tell exactly what you need to do until you DO pull yours apart to see how it all connects together
