The Arcade Cab Project Part 3: Constructing the control panel part 2

This is a continuation of my multi-part series about my arcade project about about the – as of now – hypothetical arcade cab project (and definitely not decent into madness). This hilariously part 2 of a thing that’s a part 3 of a thing.

Where to start…

I did come up with an idea of mounting this controller PCB inside of something else that I could work on relatively easily and use like an actual arcade controller for testing. Which would then be relatively easy to adapt to the actual case. And I came with what I think is a solution to this: the outside frame of an old VHS drawer. These drawers are quite common and very cheap (as you can imagine).
