Documenting my next swap which will be similar to the Taxi I had done for the same gentleman. This one is in far better shape but is in desperate need of some love.

It will be getting a new playfield with my usual rebuild, clean and/or replacements with new plastics, targets, switches, ramp and chrome. The cabinet needs some work and will be getting Radcals. It will get chrome trim all around as well. A new DumbAss WPC driver board will also be going in.

Here’s the as delivered starting point.

This is going to be awesome! I'm here for the shiny stuff and pictures of the supervisor.

Despite the icy morning, I was able to get a lot accomplished. The cabinet is stripped down. It’s really a decent machine other than dirty. The speaker maybe needs replaced?

The back box top came off after I took all the angle brackets out lol. My buddy Grant is taking it Sunday so he can make it nice.

Have a local powder coater that did a hitch receiver for me. Came out great. It was rusty despite the rain in the picture making it look better.

So I’ll be able to get that done locally now too for pinball parts. He had some there that just got done.

Mechanisms torn apart for cleaning. The pop bumpers will get all correct coils.

The ball shooter feeder was pretty rough so it’s getting a lot of new parts. Same for the slings…

Playfield has some parts installed.

Using Zitt clear bodies again to brighten them up. He has an opaque clear and lots of other colors to fit the theme or style. I really like them and this is not sponsored lol. At some point when I do some deep shop jobs on my own machines, I’ll be converting to them.

#20 1 year ago

She was checking that the harness was cleaned up. I’ll get her opinion on the progress of it later.

Well Karolina approves of the work so far. I taught her how to fist bump with her head. So Thing qualified so she considered Thing worthy too lol!

Not much to share tonight as I had a blow out that want from Taco Thursday. Gotta love PA potholes. So threw my 3 season wheels back on and got tied up with that. Very glad I have a full size spare and no issues changing it out right before getting on route 30 in Lancaster.

Supervisor is really cracking the tail on this one. Looks great.

#25 1 year ago

The entire cabinet will be getting chrome and it just showed up today. Hot Rod Arcade always comes through. We also went with the chrome wireforms. This one is getting pimped out.

I swapped over the parts on the ramp tonight. Added the switch cover as it feel it looks cleaner.

Started on the new plastic ramp from Starship. The new clear plastic will look much better than the yellow on a new clear ramp. I added new diodes and tubing for the lamp holders.

I have most of the mechs in. I’m waiting on a few new coils to replace ones that had broken tabs.

I laid in the solenoid harness but not much done other than plugging in a few connectors. But moving along well…

I'm assuming white gloves will provided if I'm permitted to play this when you're done?

#30 1 year ago

Thing is assembled after I replaced the crimp connection.

Bookcase is back together too and installed. Thing has to wait close until the end when it’s off the rotisserie.

Excellent job.

#36 1 year ago

The ColorDMD is installed. I used my own machine to load the firmware and confirm all is good.

Two standoffs were broken so installed new ones.

#37 1 year ago

Plastics are done. Green LED’s will be added into the swamp plastics and spotlights at the slings. The last one I did really lit the slings up in the middle nicely and the owner wants them.

I had 3 wedge lamp holders that were busted like this so they got replaced.

Adding a few reinforced targets. They (PL) also now have the Stern reinforced with anti sway. This his perfect for the upper swap target.

Outhole kicker in and starting on switches with new ones being installed. New clear tubing for obvious reasons.

This is the oblong blue target by the bear kick ramp. Well it should be. And it was custom lol.

I have all new switches and optos in. More pop bumper spoons are much better. One was cracked! Not sure if it shows in the pictures.

I’m about 85% complete. Everything is soldered in less pop bumper lighting and sling spotlights (in route).

Thanks for posting this one of my favorites it's coming along fast

Looks like it is ready to play pinball again. Taking tips from your progress for my upcoming PF swap.

Following... you do very nice work!

#46 1 year ago

I'm impressed at how quickly you're making your way through this project. It would take me months to get half as close as to where you are on this.

#47 1 year ago

Thanks! It helps me to keep moving daily or almost daily (wife’s birthday was Friday). And either I order parts and order ahead or people supply them. And having spare new parts on hand too. And lastly having this title and have done several of them!

#48 1 year ago

My buddy Grant has the cabinet cleaning up nicely. Should be ready by next weekend.
