I will be bringing my 1989 Bally Atlantis Pinball machine to TPF this year, didn't make it last year due to family medical issues, but it will be there this year! This made it to the HAAG show and was in the tournament area in 2016.

This is a machine you are never likely to come across in similar condition as it has a restored and clearcoated playfield. I did this purely to try my hand at airbrush and clearcoating. This is not a perfect job, but a good first try for me that I am glad to say I tried to say I can do it and eventually move on to the next one and do a better job at it.

Considering selling it, or trading it for the right game, $2700 OBO.

The goods:
Playfield was completely covered in mylar upon pickup.
Mylar was removed, and majority of the playfield was frisket stenciled and airbrushed.
ALL INSERTS were re-vectored and re-applied.
Playfield was clearcoated and wet-sanded about 6x over between various coats of paint.
A good 80+ hours into the playfield.
NVRAM installed
Cabinet was recolored, no beauty queen but better than it was when picked up.
New CPR plastics.
New Flipper coil assemblies
New charcoal legs
solid cabinet

Not so goods:
Cabinet head has decal issues
bottom back of cabinet has peeling black paint
New T-molding needed
some inserts are cold. Needs resolder or replacement sockets
Left flipper sticks, going to try to get this back to great before TPF.
center ball save not working, coil assembly missing 1-2 pieces
some side rail issues

Few photos attached, video below. Plenty more photos available of the finished product and the process.
