I got the Isopropyl out again tonight to give the Solenoid/Lamp driver PCB a good clean. This also looks in good condition:

I’ve cleaned the Vidiot Baby Pacman PCB tonight with some Isopropyl. 30 years of dust and dirt came off it. The PCB is in excellent condition, and I can see no traces of any battery leak damage from the MPU PCB.

I’ve finally had the chance to remove the Baby Pacman playfield. Wow, it looks in top shape. I’ll give it a clean with Novus and I suspect it will look like new. Really pleased with this.

One thing I haven’t done yet, and is recommnended, is building a box to hold the playfield. This ensures that you don’t crush the wires, coils and lights underneath

I’ve recently acquired a Crazy Kong PCB, but the Jamma adaptor that came with it wasn’t the best so I’ve made a new one, so I can plug this into a supergun or Jamma cabinet. Again it looks a bit like spagetti junction, but it is fairly tidy, and I am happy with the results.

I’m particularly pleased with the soldering of the edge connector directly to the fingerboard. This is the first time I’ve done this and I think I did a fairly decent job.
