Assembly - main bezel, marquee, control panel
There isn't much to say here since I spent so much time fitting the main bezel and marquee before I painted the cabinet.
I nailed the aluminum channel to the control panel rear support and dropped the main bezel into the channel. the top of the main bezel is held by a support bar that I bought on Mike's Arcade. The marquee fits into the top of that support bar and is secured to the top of the cabinet by - you guessed it - another support that I bought on Mike's Arcade.
I dropped the control panel into place and secured it from the underside with a pair of "control panel latches" that I bought on ebay.
I also stapled a piece of black poster board to the inside top of the cabinet and to the back of the monitor support. This can be easily removed if I want to slide the monitor out.
