My younger brother started this madness, He bought a TaF off a friend, I played it and fell in love with pinball again. I hadn't played in a long time, not since the Galaxy arcade on Gratiot closed its doors so long ago. I bought a Diamond Lady off of CL back in 2005. It was non-working but I was determinded to get it running again. But life got in the way and I went through a divorce. That put the project on hold. I met a wonderful women several months later and re-married. She herself had two arcade machines, A Robotron and a Budweiser beer tapper. Awesome! So I started slowly working on the diamond lady again using Clay's awesome helpful "manuals" .
Fast forward a bit to 2012 and I now have an Apollo 13, Dr who, and Gorgar along side DL. All were bought this year.
I really love restoring the games and getting them back into shape. I almost like working on them more than i do playing them. LOL
