Too many people thing that money is the only motivation anyone can have. It's a sad reflection of some people's values.

Anyway, more importantly, what are the three arcade cabinets?!
I have a Street Fighter II reproduction Cab with a gorgeous CRT here already. It came with a Dos arcade thing i've ripped out.

I have a Pacman Multicade CRT Cab on the way from England.

I have a fixer upper of a Space Invaders Cab being transported by the Coin Op King for me that i plan to restore.

I've purchased the following PCBs :-

1. Street Fighter II CPS1 Jamma
2. 1943 Jamma
3. Chase HQ (Sort of Jamma)
4. Super Space Invaders
5. Real Break Jamma.

I've also got a Pandora coming but i'm not sure i'll use that much.

Company I used to work for repaired arcade machines. They chucked out so much stuff it was unreal. All those old logic boards like 2 foot square . we even saw Atari ones like area 51 , jag based machines. We did all sorts, who wants to be a millionaire machines , fruit machines.

My ultimate goal is either a full Outrun or Chase HQ Cabinet with functioning lights

Nice =D I can certainly see the attraction to arcade hardware! Wish I had a bloody basement that size lol!!! I've throughly enjoyed working on Neo Geo boards, and recently Punisher (boot) and that Sega Mega-Tech board. It's always interesting to see the bespoke design of hardware for a single game (in some cases more than one game, but often they are aimed at just one or two titles).

Outrun would be really cool, I would love a full sized sega rally and time crisis but no room for either :lol:
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

@terriblefire im sure I saw an outrun machine in Skegness back in the day that used an MX-5 for the driving controls and then the biggest CRT I've ever seen. At least I think it was Outrun.
