Been to many museums and arcades and have even tried Gameplan but found Gottlieb to be more exciting, fun, and restorable. Looking to get serious about this hobby and begin collection with a DD.
PM if selling.

In the club here.. Picked up one in fairly decent shape DD. Probably over paid a tad and will put way more money in the machine then its worth but saving it from the dumpster for the next generation to enjoy when I'm feeding trees is priceless to me. I love the artwork which was the biggest appeal to me. Right now mine powers on and has lights but that's about all it does. I already pulled the back box and play field. Going for a full restore within reason to my knowledge(learning as I go). Going to try and keep it classic and classy but may put a little 2019 moderation and umph into it. First thing is to clean the inside box, and switch out those horrible leg brackets with some Williams style for more support. I already have one corner separation i'm going to have to address. I will post pictures later on. Although may not be many active people on this thread it will still be here for anyone restoring one down the road for historic purposes.

So will try not to spam this thread with to many pictures and will keep it minimal if anyone is interested So machine powers on with some lights but that's about all it does. Will have to repin all the connectors but tore it down anyhow to do a restoration. Started to paint the inside cabinet a lighter color and help protect that old MDF wood. Went with a almond color as that will go decent with the gold powder coat I'm doing on everything metal. Yeah a lot of the parts are in the cab but powder coating them will keep them fresh and not corrode in the future. Using enamel for inside the box due to its one coat and hardness. That old wood is sucking up the paint though so will for sure take a few coats. Also the enamel will help get rid of the musty smell. This machine smells like its been in my grandmas basement for 50 years lol. Powder coated the backbox brackets with sun gold, just to test out the color and I like it. So all metal will end up being that color. I realize my changes may not be for everyone but at least I'm saving the machine regardless The translate with the machine is pretty much in perfect condition so I got that going for me.

Looks Awesome!!

Does anyone have a photo of the inside of their cabinet? Not under the playfield, but, rather where the capacitor/bridge rectifiers and transformers are?

I picked up one of these about a year ago. I'm just getting to it today (had several other projects I've been working on).

It is in pretty decent condition. It was sitting in a basement on the ground since gottlieb went out of business. Man had bought it new, HUO from the sound of it, and he told me a switch would break every so often and they would come service it.

He said he stopped playing it and stored it when the switch broke and the company would no longer come and fix it.

I assume he had some sort of warranty through gottlieb when he bought it.

Anyway, it was sitting in a basement, had a room built basically around it and was a fun time getting it out without any keys or way in to take the head off.

Bottom is a bit corroded and musty. Diodes are all corroded as well as the power switch.

Just today wired in a new switch, turned it on, it powered on into attract mode, credited up with sound, and then errored when it tried to launch a ball and froze up.

Diving into this today and will hopefully have better news later

Side note, what's the going price for these guys?

EDIT:
So replacing the diodes at the bottom solved some issues, mainly allowing me power to the coin door and able to now use the self test.

I'm also able to start games. I can credit it up, start a game, solenoid fires but ball doesn't launch. Game makes a noise, P1 score display goes 00 and the credit and ball display go to E EE.

Getting there.

EDIT 2:
Fixed the game and it plays decently. Need some tweaking, rubbers, new balls, and a good cleaning, but all solenoids and switches working.

Just having issue with getting voice, and the credit display needs a bit of tlc but otherwise it's all done and ready for my living room

Just found this link to a guy in Holland that primarily does Bingo backglasses but does pinball ones as well. I see he has done Devil's Dare as well in case you need one.

EMK or anyone else for that matter just let me know what pictures you guys want to see. I took a zillion of them on tear down of my Devils Dare. Not saying mine is correct but its a reference.
