I’ve been working really hard on the Baby Pacman over the last four days applying new Formica to the sides and front of the cabinet.

Having never used Formica or a router before I’m really pleased with the results:

Baby Pacman Formica All Sides

I sanded down each side, cut out a template to apply to the machine with Thixofix glue, and then routed off the excess.

The front needed some precision cutting, but the process was fairly similar.

I just need to apply the side art, cut some button holes and the exterior is pretty much done.

Then I need to complete the rest of the internal restoration, and finally I can get this cabinet playable.

Hopefully it will be in time for the two year anniversary of when I bought it 🙂
