Another small update.

Everything was nailed, nothing seems to have move
wich is GOOD.....it can happen sometime that the aluminum sheet move just a bit...
and then it turns all holes into a fitting nightmare.

Better catch such a problem here, then when its in your hands.
so for now erything goes WELL. even the paint looks shiny @_@ its beautifull

The paint is diferent from the first case, its charcoal.
It has a dark gray feels, which looks like the original case (but not perfectly the same color)

Also ! hole on front for plugs is wider, thats great, i think you'll find it better then my first version (it was too tight)
Hole around the C-board is slightly bigger too just in case.
Volume hole is better centered this time :)

as for now a over half of the order has been shipped !

@Loki
@jassin000
@LittleLarrySellers
@psykom1
and
@ack

Ill communicate trackings later tonight.

i wanted the front screws to be black but something i had not foresaw, my supply depleted very fast.
and my order of black screws might not be home until next year so... i'm not delaying your orders for that, so some of you might have 4x steel screws and some might have black ones.
(this is because i added a 4th insert on front...completely forgot to ajust the number of necessary screws -_- but i guess it will still look great :) don't worry)

stuff i've learned is - international tracking (not USA) cost a freaking arm and leg (wtf its over 60usd) so for people from international i had to take another shipping option but it will take around
8-12 days, so you might be lucky and get it JUST before christmas. Those who were not shipped today, Dont worry, im taking care of that tomorrow... The missing screws jammed everything today. (sigh~)

More update tomorrow :)
after that i'll write a little install process for all of you (hehe i'll make you work a little :P )

Every orders were shipped :)

now i know better about shipping.
Canada 20$usd (1-2 weeks + tracking)
USA - 25$usd (1-2 weeks + tracking)
International - 45~65usd (2-8 weeks + may or may not have tracking...seem to depend on country)

add 12$usd (approx) for each extra case but for international i would have to check if i can do that..prices goes up FAST

so i was almost right on the shipping price.

now, this was a fun experience. i really hope no problem will happens, those cases are long to make ...and the whole shipping process was quite a mess here.
i will have to organise myself back at home better, or ill go crazy.

I really thought it would be easier XD there's so much stuff to think @_@
anyway please send me feekbacks :) tomorrow i'll write some installation infos

Registering my interest for a TMNT case if you do end up making one.

Also an X-Men and Simpsons case if you ever get one of those boards (they're the same footprint, almost identical boards). I need to start casing the boards I intend to keep long-term.

Right in time for Christmas!! Awesome work @Escarioth!! Thanks for accommodating me and enclosing my case by special request. This will help protect my CPS1 board for many years to come.

I would love to have a matching CPS2 enclosure case if you ever make one!

No problem, but as i said...no test were made about this enclosure...
keep an eye on the heat and check carefully the jamma harness...i know it doesnt fit well.

Ok ! Happy new year !

Long vacations are now done.
Back to my chair and computer :)

I'm going to work back at my current TMNT / Battletoads projects

When I'm done i'll re-open pre-orders for everyone.

I was very happy to see that some of you guys received the cases and are very happy of the product :)
that pushes me forward to bring some more. If you have questions about anything don't be shy i love having some chatting :D

anyway
Ill update when i've got more to show you ^^
