Quoted from Jjsmooth:

Decals going on today. Gen 2's from PPS.

It's refreshing to see someone not using the ugly ass black decals and letting the original art look live on

#53 2 years ago

Thanks. I think these machines restored are beautiful.

Looks like you are missing a ball rail on the exit of the right loop.

It will be there.
Moved switches and mounts from old ramps over to the new ones from starship for test fit.

The pop bumpers got new bases, aprons, caps, lamp sockets, and clear bodies. Should look good with red LEDs inside.

Fitting the rechromed helmet.

Looking good!

#65 2 years ago

Do you just clean/polish the playfield plastics to look that good, or are they a replacement set? I'm on the lookout for the right slingshot plastic.

#66 2 years ago

CPR did another run this past year, so these are new.
I should still have the old one, will let u know.

#67 2 years ago

What is the playfield mounted on? Is that a rotisserie? Can you share some pics?

#74 2 years ago

It is a rotisserie, built from Skypilots design.

Beautiful! What lights did you use in the helmet?

#78 2 years ago

Warm white LEDs. Used them pretty much everywhere.

#79 2 years ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

I wish mine didn't have problems, they didn't show up till about 6 months later.

Who did you get your pf from? Same guy?

#80 2 years ago

Looks great! I'm at the same point in my Diner resto. Just got it fired up and working through a few bugs.

#81 2 years ago

I got the pf from Peter Brunner, in Germany. He is the only person who makes these, to my knowledge.

Thank you! I'm doing a HS restore, so I'll add these these lights in my order from Comet! This machine is coming along really, really well!
