    I've seen some brought back to life and restored from this state but very sad to see

    I was for some reason tempted to bid when I saw this. I am up for a challenge, the only reason I wouldn't give it a shot is the missing topper and trans.

    If I send that to a high end restorer it will look amazing!

    At least the seller indicates serious regret when it was brought to him...as opposed to some idiot putting a BIN on it of $2500 because of the title.

    After a few gallons of Novus 3 it'll be good as new!

    It would need a new cabinet and art, IF the PF is not water damaged, that's a big if, it could be restored. All the boards are there, they should not have been affected really, wiring harness, another big if. Add in ramps, plastics and the 100 other things it would need like replacing rusted screws, light sockets, ugh, that could be a money pit. Would add one more machine to the pool and someone would have a huge labor of unbridled love, could be worth it

    That thing is beyond restoring, for the money and time that would be invested its not worth it. Let's hope someone is buying it for parts?

    Its a parts machine. You need a new cab, pf is a maybe, it doesn't look water damaged hard to tell with the pics tho, all the mechs would need to be replated, the boards a big if, etc etc.

    It is worth 100 in parts though, probably more.

    I was actually considering it for a project. The 20 hour round trip to pick it up changed my mind.

    That is the worst I have ever seen as far as condition. I'm really suprised people are bidding. There should be a buy it now option, and the price should be 1 cent.

    This thing obviously sat out in the rain for a long time, what are the odds the metal pieces are corroded? Including the boards.

    Where's the topper? Speaking out of ignorance, what could be salvageable?

    Worst shape pin I have ever seen. Had to be in a flood.

    If it were within driving distance, I'd buy it for the challenge

    If it was local I would look at it as a parts machine not a restore.
    To each there own. At least all boards looked intact. As for the rest who knows what is there and what is salvagable.

    To anyone ever doubted the A-list status of this pin, here is your rebuff, I guarantee it will go for over 800, you just watch!

    Did someone attempt to fill it up with actual water? It's not suppose to be a pinball aquarium. That looks like it came from the great PAPA flood.

    Looks like a victim of flooding - not sure I'd even want the parts. Floodwater mixes with local sewage, resulting in unsanitary gunk.

    It's alright. It was just it's time to go. Was called to that great arcade in the sky. Where folks like us will play pinball, drink beer, and "all will be made new again".

    $535! Sheeesh! I really should have gone to New Jersey and picked that one up for $1800 last month - even if I had to walk!

    woah not sure about the playfield, did the water got to it?

    All the game needs is the adventure kit mod from the Missing Mount thread that sent tomdotcom off the deep end :-)

    Katrina is my guess as well. If thats the case. The salt water pretty much took care of any of the electricals as well.

    A DH cabinet and decals for $1500-1600, a few other parts, and a whole lotta cleaning and you've got yourself a winner.

    If I didn't have a thousand irons in the fire already, I'd definitely go for it. It'd be a fun project, and this is why they make new cabinets...

    I wonder if it will break 1000.I am glad I bought mine a few years back when they were 1200 in good payable shape.

    Yeah, the price for a WH2O has really soared. I turned one down for around that price like 6 years ago. It had a lot of dings/scratches in the cabinet, and some other issues, so I walked away. Looking back, I probably should have taken it and re-decaled it!

    This one looks so bad because of the cab, but really go to any show and you can pickup a used solid cab for 50 bucks. 300 in decals later and it will be just as good as any cq.

    The more I think about it the more 600 for it actually doesn't sound bad. If I wanted to make a game perfect this would be a good starting point. PF on it looks good, probably send it to kruzman for touch up and clear.

    Really the kicker is the topper. Translite can be had, but that topper will cost more than the base machine.

    Phoenix arcade is working on a repro topper decal with the foil.
