I finished up the Genie project ( https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/79-genie ) faster than expected, and I hate to have an empty workshop .... so when a decent Black Knight came up for sale locally I jumped on it.
I am NOT doing a full restoration. I like to think of what I do more as a 'players restoration' - where the game plays and looks as good as new (or better) from the players point of view. That means I'm not too concerned with polishing parts on the underside of the playfield, or repainting the inside of the cabinet. Don't get me wrong, I really admire the guys who have the patience, skill and tools to do all that. ...but I'll leave that to the pro's. I'm just a guy doing this in his garage for fun.
The game plays near 100% - but the flippers/pop/slings and drops all need to be rebuilt. I'm also going to touch-up and clear the playfield(s). Here are some BEFORE pictures:
