Picked up this restored Bumper last week.
Here are a few pictures.
Hi Jim...I had a bally skipper, I believe from the same year and the scoring was a rotating wheel, with a bulb as
a projector running on a dry cell.
There was a mica like film in the window, that received the projection.
Is yours anything like this?
Looks great ! I also have one but it still needs to be restored.
Could you post a good picture/scan of your instruction/score cards please ?
And was the playfield repainted ? Or was it originally that bright green ?
I notice in ipdb it seems there are different color combinations for the playfield.
oldpinguy: Scoring is indeed projected from a mico film.
The machine was completely restored. Not sure if the playfield was that bright before. I have seen 4 or 5 before and each are different colors.
