    Ahcmetal's cab collection.

    Here's a link to my Flickr page with albums for all the separate cabs...

    I'll be cleaning up the Neo 4-slot...but I'm not going to go crazy with it...I rather like the scuffed up vinyl sides...I can't bring myself to peel it off...

    Seriously clean setup. The big red sure looks like a beast next to its Japanese cousins.

    I agree with you on leaving the vinyl - mine is in the same condition but I'd rather leave the vinyl than try to paint the particle board.

    Silly question, where is the location of the HOT on the MS9? I think I need to replace one on a backup chassis I have.

    I love all the custom color coated internal metal pieces, though I'd have gone with a pink/fuchsia on the blast and saved doing blue for an aero

    Great line up though, good taste leaving a bit of space between mis-matched cabs.

    I seem to recall there being 2 large chips with thermal paste and 3 legs on them being strapped to that big main heat sink running through the middle of the chassis...I think it may have been the one closest to the flyback transformer that I changed...

    Would love a Megalo 410 to convert to a HD cab, fuck those shitty rear projection screens.

    I've been checking out klov for about 8 months and haven't seen any show up...sourcing repair parts scares me, but man...a Megalo would be sweet. Oh yeah, I still have to get pics of the boards and console stuff up still haha

    I got a pair off amazon and another pair online from Walmart, google search "S-3901 bar stool"...they match cabs pretty well I thought...

    A bunch of forty-something video-gaming nerds that are only keyboard commandos and mostly sedate pussies any other hour of the day cannot really be all that aggressive, can they? (My self included.)

    I love the lads here, this forum in general, and the mentality but lets not kid ourselves about this being some sort of dark web tough corner of the world.

    Just went through your flickr, did you have these cabs professionally painted? Man, these are the coolest restoration jobs.

    Yep, I had them all sprayed and clear coated with automotive paint at a restoration shop. The Astro shell had bad enough hairline cracks running through all of it after I sanded it that I had a high build primer sprayed on first to fill them in and smooth it out...I'd definitely recommend that if anybody resprays a cracked/dented up shell...
