Recently, I bought an original Pacman arcade machine for around $200. The case is not bad, but it’s bad enough that it needs restoration. Since this machine is outside in my garage, which is colder than my freezer, all the electronics had to be removed from these extreme temperatures to prevent further damage (Most of the components a rusty).

I cleaned the motherboard a bit, reqired some stuff, and set it up on the floor in my basement. The game works, but the screen is covered with dots vertical lines and dots. I will put some more pics up when I get the chance.

**PS: According to the manual, the plural form of Pacman is Packmen… Cool.
