Here is an update and a video of the cab so far.
1) Ripped out the the bluetooth wiring from inside the control panel and installed a simple device from Ultracabs - http://www.ultracabs.co.uk
2) Owned a spare DVD screen that we had for the car - the main one had cracked and this one was just lying around (it's the one without the DVD player). The problem was it only had composite input, and the PC I wanted to use only has VGA output. So I bought a converter for £10 or so from E-bay and it works great:
3) I have ordered an amplifier and some speakers. There is sound coming from the LCD TV now but not good enough for me. These are coming from Ultracabs:
4) Ordered some Acrylic from the marquee and front panel - these were from a service on E-bay and will be cut to size.
Going to use an external Laptop for now to run MAME - will replace with the Raspberry PI when I get one.
