That would be very cool! Trying to eyeball these things can end up very sloppy. What's needed is probably what you'd expect - height, depth and width. The tricky part is, for example, height - where? The part that is up against the wall? The highest point of the cabinet? Up to the top of the marquee? So just make sure you keep track of what it is you are measuring. Additionally, TX-1 is a pretty unique cabinet, so some of these might have multiple values, like width of the front screen section, and width of the seat section would be helpful.

Overall, even for a "basic" cabinet it's a pain to try to keep track of what part of the cabinet I measured, so I've taken to sketching / printing a picture of the cabinet and just measuring parts of it and writing the number values directly on the drawing. Of course that would be the "above and beyond" method but I've actually found it to be easier that way. Any values at all though, would help get an accurate idea of the size of the cabinet!

Oh, one last note for pictures, people seem to overlook pics of the seat and pedals for cabinets like this. Without pictures, I'm just guessing! Anyhow, thanks again for any assistance.
