    So whatís your story?

    This is the third piece to my arcade collection. First came a Crazy Climber cocktail table followed
    by a Space Duel upright. I came across this game in an unconventional way. When I started my
    new hobby, I was naturally very excited. As I was telling one of my co-workers about my new
    purchases (a bulk purchase of 6 machines) He then said he had a Ms Pac-Man that he has had in his
    den for some time. When I pushed him to sell it to me he did. This I great I thought. A working Ms Pac-Man that has been out of circulation for a while. It must be in good shape. Guess again.
    My Ms Pac-Man had led a tough life. Heavily faded from years in the sun with a front that
    was all damaged from a having a coin door hasp placed over it. It didnít help that the coin door was
    all crowbared apart anyway. In a large hole in the side, protruded a red toggle switch for the machines
    power. When I asked about the switch, I was told that the owner didnít like reaching around the machine to turn it
    on and off so he moved the switch. I like things more stock so that would have to be repaired.
    The front and sides had many spray can paint markings and to make matters worse, the machine
    stopped working when the owner moved it out of his basement for me to pick it up.

    Restoration:

    The electronic repairs were not too tough. The main PC board had broken off of itís mount
    when the machine was moved and had broken off a few components. Since it had no schematics
    I took it to my local electronics store and argued with my friend there if "this is a zener diode...No
    its a capacitor... and so on. By the way.. They were right. Did you realize that Ms Pac-Man boards
    are nothing more then reworked Pac-Man boards with some EPROM changes and a daughter card?
    With the game functioning again, I set off on making Ms Pac-Man a pretty lady again.
    The red switch was removed and I made a new mounting plate for a standard on/off switch as well
    as puttied up the 1 inch hole in the side. A trip the paint store got me a gallon of blue paint that we
    computer matched from the back of the machine. A new coin door was purchased to replace the
    old mangled one and the wood damage to the front of the machine was repaired. New "T" trim was
    easy and always adds a great finishing touch. The badly worn control panel overlay
    Out with the old..In with the newwas replaced with a new one as well as the faded marquee. The hardest part was the repainting. Do you know that the art on Ms Pac-Man is entirely painted? This left me with hours of masking and painting of the lady herself and the 2 ghosts on the bottom. The sides were painted solid blue as repairing both sides would have taken a millennium.
    If you to wish to restore a Ms Pac-Man, be sure to check out the FOR SALE links on the previous page. There you will find the links that got my lady looking respectable again
