- Attached thin pieces of black painted wood along the inside of the cabinet where the bezel and marquee rest to block light and secure the plexi.
- Attached top bracket to secure marquee.
- Did some touch-up painting on parts we nicked and scratched.
- Drilled hole for lock in back door and installed lock.
- Applied side art.
- Transported to my home.
According to the installation manual provided by Nintendo (can be found at www.klov.com), Mario Bros. side art is to be applied 2" from the top and 2" from the back of the cabinet. So, we made the measurement, placed something next to the ruler to hold its place...
And then used the half-sticky butcher's paper that painters use (I don't know what it's called) to give us a guide for where to place the side art.
Then, with mom and pop holding the bottom up high, I lined up one corner and slowly went across the width of the artwork with a cloth, making sure there were no bubbles. Just make sure it's lined up right before you start, because there's no turning back once it's down.
