Here's other pictures of the cabinet... still not cleaned yet ( oppps).

The control panel  arrow



The marquee. As you can see, slightly damaged  Ghost  arrow



The bad think : no board inside the cabinet  confused  arrow



I've just missed one on ebay US  Evil  arrow



...went for $115 ...without shipping cost ... too expensive, and too risky when I read this : "Item is sold untested and inspected as is, as seen. NO warrenty implied or given unless stated in auction description..."

I don't have access to the coin door #2...  I can see, from the upper coin door something inside a plastic bag in the cash box... I presume it's the manual of the game and/or the monitor?  arrow



...I'll have to drill the lock, 'coz I don't have the key  confused

On location... in the 'to restore' area  Roll Eyes arrow

Let's start to work on this one.

No key for the second coin door. No problem... let's use the drill... and let's discover what was the sheets of paper hidden inside...



One sheet of paper, and the Sanyo monitor documentation :



Here's the sheet of paper...Funny  Grin  It was supposed to be the manual? But it's just a note that tell you to be patient... the manual will be available soon  Wink ... we are the 24rd of November 1987  Cheesy  arrow



To release a game without the documentation? Strange isn't it ? Or Maybe PacMania was just an upgrade kit for an other cabinet?
