It's so horrific that the podium is actually crying tears of blood from the shame.

Here's the full thread if you'd like to witness the horror.

The really sad thing is that after he cleaned it up, it looked really well.

He then goes and destroys it!

Wow,

Why didnt you just build your own instead of destroying a nice original cabinet?
You should be ashamed of yourself,you turned gold into a turd.

What a nice first post.

Whereas the others are saying it's 'beautiful', 'looks amazing'... Strange bunch that think it looks good. Horrendous what he's done to the poor candy.

Yeah, bit over the top alright. You can be horrified without being an arse.

Although the fact that someone would sign up to a website to go on a rant about what he did just shows the stupidity of the modifications.

A lot of folks in the US see candy cabs as generic junk or don't really know what they are. I specifically remember reading a thread where someone was ruining a Jaleco Pony II 19 (with a value of about €2000) and one of the responses was something like - 'and it's only a little generic cabinet, so you don't need to feel guilty about Maming it!'

I left a post there myself, trying to be just a little more positive about it but pointing out the folly of his/her work.
I wonder if they will take it well?
Seems that previous poster was banned for suggesting that the cab work was a bad idea, although his language was slightly more colourful than that.

Nice post

Unfortunately this poor Pony can't be saved, but it's nice to even make folks aware of the potential value of these things (both monetary and historical, it's it's not like the world is full of Pony IIs!)

I have to say **** that lad.
that was the first time I've ever been properly angry at a picture of a mame cab.
he deserves every bit of abuse thrown at him imo!
