New to my roster, at any rate.
I passed on this Dimension in 2012, but two years later the price was better, so this afternoon I drove down to Des Moines and picked it up, a game I've been wanting for a long time! There are, however, significant cosmetic challenges and cabinet integrity issues I will need to address.
At some point this Dimension was painted navy blue. Later it was stripped to bare wood (mostly) and then coated with an oil-based clear.
But they didn't get all the navy blue paint.
Lastly, they "decorated" one side of the head.
Despite all the indignity this cabinet has suffered, the serial number still shines through:
Then there are the structural matters. The back (or "butt") of the cabinet has fissured. I didn't take a picture of it, but here is a photo of the bottom, damaged by attempted coin box theft, which was fortified with a crudely formed chunk of wood:
The backglass and playfield are imperfect, but the former is easily rectified with the repro backglass I ordered from Ron Webb. As for the latter, it will clean up decently, but I'm also chasing a couple of leads on replacement playfields.
There's a lot of work to be done here, but a Dimension is well worth the effort, in my opinion. I won't be able to to do any of the heavy lifting for at least a year or two, but I hope to update this post down the road with progress, when it's made!
