Kraylix Back From Paint

Not too much to report tonight other than the Kraylix arcade cabinet is back from being painted! As described in previous posts, I had it painted with automotive paint – first a base layer of gloss black, then gloss clear.

Here’s a photo after having assembled the basic cabinet pieces together plus installing the marquee back panel that I painted white myself. Note the artwork on the control panel here is just office printer test prints to see what it will look like.Kraylix-painted 001

From what I heard the painter had to do a bit more sanding and filler (in addition to all the prep I did), but it was well worth it – I’m thrilled with how well it came out. The top arch in particular is totally seamless, as is the control panel. It doesn’t really even look like MDF or wood!

I’ll have to clean up some overspray on the control panel before mounting buttons and joysticks, but other than that it’s pretty much time for final assembly and wiring everything together. This has been a really fun project so far and it’s about to get even better!
