Hi Folks! I recently found a Hi-diver machine for sale privately near me. I've not dealt much with woodrail machines very much and have some questions regarding the availability of parts and value.
Backglass has some lifting but it appears all of the paint is still there.
The playfield isn't too bad with the worst wear in the shooter lane especially at the top right hand corner. The rail down by the plunger is broken.
The apron is rusted and I'm not sure it can be salvaged. 4 upper pop caps are missing. Each of the lower pops have slight damage.
I did not get to look under the hood but for now we'll assume no major parts missing.
1. What parts if any are unavailable (reproduction or otherwise) or might be very difficult to find that would prohibit someone from restoring this beauty?
2. Value of the machine as is?
Ant feedback would be greatly appreciated.
