I had been on a bit of a CRT and PS1/PS2 light gun spree when it was brought to my attention that an old shooting cabinet was up for sale. Andyj965 posted a Virtua Cop clone cabinet right around the corner from my work so I went and took a look. It was a bargain compared to flat packs available on the market at $100 ($120 if I wanted the guns but I did not need them and he was happy to keep them). Financial documentation of the project will cease at this point however a substantial amount of the expense has been tools. He mentioned it originally had a mirror inside that had deteriorated. Based on that and the internal rails I assume it had the CRT mounted horizontally down the bottom with the mirror mounted at a 45 degree angle above. I assume this would have been done to create a greater distance perception from the targets on screen while the players still stand fairly close to the cabinet. I have no knowledge of the actual hardware that was originally inside. Here is the cabinet, as received: I removed the control panel and screen glass and cleaned it up and stripped out what little there was inside, just a fluorescent tube for the marquee backlight and a pair of rusty speakers. power assisted me with gutting the NEC 68CM CRT TV as seen in the background of the following photo. At this stage I was not sure how I was going to go about mounting it though. I knew that the 45 degree rails for the mirror would be of no use so these were also removed. The panel above with the lime green contact on it was removed too. It's unclear what this was for or why it was there. Beware of cyclops laser cat. We went to bunnings and grabbed some aluminum square tubing and a few brackets. This resulted in the following so we could easily move the loose tube around as it lived in a spare bedroom while I mulled over how to mount it. The right angled brackets were kept in the final frame, the aluminum tubing was replaced with flat bar stainless steel. In the end this tube had power issues despite recapping and was replaced with a Sony Trinitron 68CM. I'll split this up into multiple posts at this point as there is a 10 image attachment limit per post.
