It started as a gimmick. A childhood dream of my own arcade. It led to pinball number 2. Still wondering why this hunger was growing. Is it the game? Is it the challenge? Or is it more the art, the colours? It led to pinball number 3. A bit of a visual wrecker led to a full strip, cabinet refurb, new decals, full leds, new ramps, etc. I was intent on learning a bit more and bringing it back to life. It's now an addiction. Gumtree and eBay is checked daily, if not to buy, just to satisfy the hunger. Machines of yesteryear enticing me. The bling and quirkiness of the newer machines also taking my interest. I want them all Check out my location and Wishlist if you want to help
