Wow! It's been 3 years, how she doing?  :pac:

Well, she's still waiting, just behind me atm (in my 'office'), but now that my game room is almost done, I'll have time to go back on restoration job, and I really want to 'play' with the Ms.  ;)

Héhé... that cabinet is now in the official 'repair room' somewhere in my game rooms  8) ...not in the family house anymore. So, in both ways, the Ms is happy  ;D

Ops... didn't updated that topic since a loong time...(thx WunderCade for the reminder  ;)).

What I've done recently :

- installed the board 'Namco Reunion' / jamma wiring
- replaced the original marquee completely sun faded
- installed 20" TV / RGB scart to jamma adapter
- installed temporary plexiglas (unfortunately scratched)
- completely restored the grill speaker (rusted to the bones)
- installed spare speaker + amp board

... and ... and ... that's it!

I always wanted for that specific cabinet to start the painting job first... but time goes & goes... months years passes.. and I finally realized that it's most important for me/the visitors to have this game playable first.
In addition, do you honestly think that cabinet need a 'strong' restoration firdt? I don't think so... check this out  :arrow:









Next steps in the right order :

- clean the cabinet (yep... still not done... you can spot the shits of pigeons  :D)
- restore the coin door/frame (rust!)
- replace the scratched bezel
- ...and finally touch up the cabinet with 'accurate' paint  ;)

...but while this time, that Ms Pac Man is now 'enjoyable' inside the Nuno's Lair!  :)  :pac:  :ghost: :ghost: :ghost: :ghost:
