Yes, definitely... once I do my last "ready to print" check on them, I will get them all posted in the artwork section. Thanks!

I like the sideart.
They remind me alot of the pacman stickers from the early eighties.

I wonder if the sideart is a little angular for a pac cab... what about this alternate? Preferences?

Cool. Keep in mind I'm not doing any other stenciling... just a 20x30" sticker/poster stuck on the Ms Pac blue paint, so I kind of like the extra color space in the 2nd one.

I agree with your angular comment... I prefer the second.

You've done a great job with the artwork. That's something I am not good at all. If I ever make a Pac themed bartop (which I just might) then I would love to use all the art you've done here. I know I'd be kind of "stealing" it but it just looks great. Oh yeah I prefer the second of the side art examples you posted earlier. Really looking forward to the finished article.  :applaud:

Yeah, I think I will go with the more "rounded rectangle" type, that will probably be easier to apply, too. You're definitely welcome to any of the art, I am dragging my feet on it but I will try to get all the .ai files posted this week... after all, I just "stole" it from some Namco designer (and a few parts from other folks here on the boards) myself ! And it was a good subject matter to learn the software (Adobe Illustrator) on... clean lines, simple color palette.

As the cabinet goes, I am finished priming (finally) and ready to put some blue on this weekend. I think I am painting the front yellow, we will see how that goes. I would love to say the priming/sanding gave me a perfect finish, but I still see lots of blemishes... this one has been a big learning experience for me as far as bondo and paint!

I hate painting! I just dont have the patience for it. One thing I want to do with my current project is get away from painting as much as I can. Of course you can't avoid some areas like the small angles where side panels meet marquee etc. etc. which can be sprayed. But I want to try and use some adhesive vinyl instead of paint. for the back panels and door etc. You still need a flat surface as the vinyl is quite thin and will show imperfections, but if it's applied right it should give a great uniform finish. Well that's the idea anyway... perhaps applying it might be as frustrating as painting would have been.  :dizzy:

First coat of blue went on today. Posted artwork here: http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=112832.0. Now I just need to get it printed somewhere.

Bought a duplicate of the TV I de-cased for this project, just in case it dies on me. Added it to my "shelf of screens for future projects"... I have a problem.

Last (3rd) coat of blue goes on today. Takes forever to dry in the midwest humidity. Not entirely happy with how it is coming out, but looking forward to being able to move on to another color (yellow on the front)... and get closer to getting it inside and put together. Pic below.

Not much to report, blue paint is done. Too hot to paint for a few days.

The "Multiple" in MAME has become too much of a temptation, and decided to add a spinner and a couple buttons to the plan. Time to re-do the CPO artwork!  ;D

Got an order into Basement Arcade Grafix for the artwork, and just sent an order to Groovy Game Gear for a Turbo Twist spinner and a longer ball top shaft. New CPO preview below. Yes, I put the buttons on the left. I am strange I guess. Buttons and spinner are red, should have a slight yellow outline of them on the CP.

Still too freaking hot to paint!

Need to update my potential ROM list now that I have buttons and a spinner (still just a 4-way joy though).

Finally got some painting done today, first coat of yellow on the bottom front. When that is done will just need to do the flat black on the top front/misc hardware and a pink highlight around the coin door area (not using any kickplate art, due to the over/under door).

Also glued some small metal pieces as backing for a couple of carriage bolt holes I need to fill, now that the holes have a "bottom" I will fill them with glue or something (out of bondo) before I prime and apply the adhesive control panel overlay.

I was just about to say "ohhh, those need to go in a frame" for the sideart as I was reading this thread but you did it already!

Great designs and theme! Who would of thought Mr + Mrs Pac-Man! :applaud:

Thanks. I originally thought of the theme to make a Bella's Arcade sized cabinet for my daughter based on the Sega Genesis version of Ms. Pac (where the two can play simultaneously), but then I ended up with a an old Ms. Pac cab with a Pac Man control panel, and it was 30 years ago that Ms Pac was released...

Updates:

Final painting happening... yellow done, did another coat of blue, first coat of black on cab.

Cleaned and prepped all metal pieces for a quick coat of black spraypaint (this project and next one, both under/over doors).

Got Groovy Game Gear order in, with turbo twist, very cool. Should get last item from them (new balltop/shaft) and my artwork from Basement Arcade Grafix this week.

In-laws are gone (we live with them) so I have the garage to myself until next Saturday... should help me progress quickly... could have the cab back in the basement and assembly/wiring within a week!

One thing I learned: don't use newspaper to mask off latex paint- the ink will transfer! Just buy a big roll of painters plastic and use it! Much easier too!

Not much to report, waiting for artwork. Moved the machine to the basement, now I have all sorts of spots to touch up with paint.  :-\

A few modifications to parts here and there to make the Pac Man (wood-backed) CP work on a Ms. Pac Cab (made for just the metal).

Decided I want a couple new bezels for the coin door, need to put in an order to TwistedQuarter.

Managed to drop my new versa ball 2 shaft, putting a dent in the balltop... which I had bought to replace a dented balltop.  :banghead:

Needless to say, I am at the "learning to live with imperfections" stage of the project. If I can get this thing finished by Christmas I will be elated.  :angry:

I know what you mean, I way over thought some points on my project and now I'm looking at some of these things and saying, that looks just fine.

Thanks. If I can keep from destroying all the individual parts until I get them assembled, I will be ok. I guess it is going to get wear and tear from playing anyway, but denting a $20 balltop/shaft stings a little. I am sure it will still chomp ghosts just fine.

Holy crap, got my artwork from gameongrafix and it is gorgeous!!!! I was afraid my on-screen colors wouldn't look good when printed, but it looks great. I guess the designer in me needed the artwork to get excited again about the cab... and it worked.

So phat! :notworthy:

Thanks!

Got acrylic cut to sandwich the marquee tonight, managed not to mess it up! I will say this, 24x18 sheets are very convenient for pac cabs... two cuts and I was done, with only a 1" strip wasted.

Only other update is that I am still messing with the software, looking into groovymame or cabmame to fix some graphical/sound issues I am running into.

On my 6th (!) version of Mame, finally found the right one for my cab... old version, 0.72. This weekend hope to get light installed, marquee on, paint touched up, t-molding in, CP assembled... thank goodness for a 3 day weekend!

Wow, I'm not so sure about the blue sides and yellow front but the artwork looks amazing.  I'm really hoping that it ties it all together in the end.
If there's bees in the trap I'm catching em
By the thorax and abdomen
And sanding the stingers down to a rough quill
Then I dip em in ink, and I scribble a bit
But if it they wriggle then I tickle em until they hold still
Lemme say it again
In my land of pretend
I use bees as a mf'n pen

That's my hope, that the yellow and blue will get along. I was originally thinking about a pink border around the coin door, but I wasn't so sure about my ability to mask off some nice round corners. May play it safe and just see how it looks when the door and kickplate are on.

I think the yellow and blue look good together. I know some people like their arcade cabs to look like furniture and be nice looking and all (it also helps for the wife to not hate it so much) but I still love the loud bright colors of the original machines.

Got a few things done today... wife and I got speaker, light, marquee installed, paint touched up, and additional CP holes drilled. Would like to get another coat of paint on CP metal & wood to seal edges.

Tomorrow is T-molding, corner protectors, and software tweaks. Monday, control panel assembled. It is starting to look like a real arcade cabinet again!

Re: Pac 30th anniversary cab- Sideart on, Control Panel done.

Made some good progress today. My wife helped me get the t-molding in, sideart on, corner protectors on, CPO on, and I populated the control panel. Overall very very pleased. Pics below. Tomorrow hope to finalize my Mala layout and my MAME setup.

Thanks all for the kind words/feedback.  :cheers:
