Repair Work

One of the locations I went to today has been around since 1980.  I imagine they saw many of the classic arcades from back in the day went through this place. It reminds me of Skate Land, the roller skate place I grew up with back in the 80’s.

Removing an out of order sign or tape covering a damaged part is very satisfying.  Especially with a place that has history like this.

Pac Cocktail Work

Much of last week was spent on paperwork, admin and tech support.

Today I got back to doing some game work. We picked this one up a couple weeks ago and hope to get this ready to deploy soon. Today the lock was changed and the coin door light was swapped out. The original coin insert was trashed, but one of the old ones from the Super Pac-Man was decent.

Control Panel Work

I don’t plan to go to DragonCon, but some of my work will be there in the vintage arcade. Our business partner Brian needed some help with redoing a couple of his control panels. I’m pretty happy with the way they turned out.

He plans to replace the green trackball with a standard white one, once he gets them back.

Vintage Pac-Man Wallpaper

We had the idea to go looking for arcade themed wallpaper that could be used in the Pub. Much to our surprise, we found a couple rolls of sealed Pac-Man wallpaper from the 80’s on eBay!

We might use it in the bathrooms, not completely sure yet.
