Figured out what I will do to the sides. I bought 4 sconces (Wall mounted accent lights) from Lowes for $12 each. I remove the plastic light difuser and added one giant plastic piece that extends into both units. Together they form a sort of classic art deco Pillaster for either side of the jukebox. I plan to light the pillasters with 36 inch blue automotive neon. (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300234252628&ssPageName=ADME:B:EOIBSA:MOTORS:1123) which should match the marquee artwork. Here is a picture of the mock-up.

Well today its like 108 degrees in Vegas. So i worked last night on recessing my ELO touchscreen into the top panel. This morning I trimmed it out and added the first coat of stain. So far so good. This is my first 'real wood' project so I don't expect perfect results, but I think its pretty good. Anyways here are the progress pics.
I know, I know my forstner bit is worn out and half burned its way through
First stain coat dry enough to mock up.

Not done, but time to get it out of the dusty work shop. Still have Pillasters, lighting, remote start of Stereo and Second monitor left to do. Just added second monitor to the list as I found the flat position of the screen tough for Karoke and watching videos.
