2 weeks ago I picked up another Donkey Kong cabinet from a high school friend (thanks, Nick!). The cabinet is in good shape and complete with the exception of a monitor. I have a monitor I could use that would require an inverter board, but I’d prefer an original Sanyo 20EZ monitor. I have a couple leads on a monitor but nothing set in stone yet. I planned to use the spare monitor in my Centipede cabinet, which has a serious case of burn-in.
My intention is to run Donkey Kong Jr. in this cabinet. Here’s the question…leave the cabinet original colors, etc. and just run Jr. in it, or completely convert it to a Jr. cabinet with orange paint, new side art, bezel, control panel and marquee? Pictures later.
