A client of mine had a nice Transporter pin that he wanted a cabinet restore done to. The new decals were supplied by the client. Look how nice and RED it is! I thought I would share since nobody has probably ever seen this machine look this bright and new since decals are not available.

The left side of the head was crushed so I a new piece of wood was installed after gutting the head and taking off the old one. Of course there are all the leftover staples, etc. from the factory and the tongue and groove that had to be routed in the wood before putting it back together. After ALL the cabinet work, here is what she looks like!

Enjoy, Pimp!

Awesome!

Wow, that is red alright!

It looks quite stunning when you see it as it should be.

My Transporter is faded as all hell, like every other one out there.

PM me where the decals came from, if you can ...

Thanks for sharing. That looks great, you don't see them like that. I miss Transporter. If I had the room I never would have gotten rid of it. Fun game with whacky artwork and great music.

Yea, nice wood working....most wouldn't tackle that. Final product came out fantastic.

#12 7 years ago

Cabinet looks great, although I think a natural floor would look even better

Nice work , I love seeing these sys 11's restored . Did you do any resto on the playfield ?

Yes playfield was completely stripped and shopped out.
All new posts, flippers and housings rebuilt. All new LED's.
Game came out wonderfully. Keeper!

WOW... just ran across this post again. I forgot how much work this machine was for me, but was fun working on a Sys 11 after all the WPC decal restores and older Bally FULL restorations.
