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

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.  Wink

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

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  Cheesy)
- restore the coin door/frame (rust!)
- replace the scratched bezel
- ...and finally touch up the cabinet with 'accurate' paint  Wink

...but while this time, that Ms Pac Man is now 'enjoyable' inside the Nuno's Lair!  Smiley  pacman  Ghost Ghost Ghost Ghost
