Works great.. just giving it a clean up.
I really FUBAR'ed the touch-ups. It was the first pin I ever tried color matching and hand painting. Just missed the mark. But the darn thing just keeps running. Paste wax the snot outta the playfield and it keeps the remaining art intact. I did do a full zipper flipper rebuild. Also the pop bumpers have the original metal rings and trigger mechs. It killed me to upgrade it to plastic so I did the best could holding those original also (minus pop bumper bodies).
Also the wonderful and huge upper plastic was cracking. It covers the entry to the spinning feature in the upper mushroom target area. Was able to save one half the plastic from the creeping crack! Ground out the clear original see thru lane and created 2 seperate plastics. To the lamen it looks nos. Anyone have an upper plastic?
Wow. Fun game! I loaned this out for 2 years at my Dad's man cave. I forgot how quick and fun zipper flippers are. Giving it a quick clean up and wax has made it really zippy!
A couple of Mods Rocket III needed. On off switch of course! Just havent drilled it in yet. And the one I'm proud of 3-chime unit!
Getting more intimate. Love the early E.M.'s that have the folding board in the belly that allows a hinged arm to hold the board up and out for maintenance.
Thats exactly it. We use old rubbers to pinch that connector down, of course, grinding on the jones plugs helps too!
Does your Rocket have a Special function? Early ones were a little different and in some cases came with a Plexi BG. Mine is a later model with special and a thick glass BG.
