The toughest part will be distressing the game. Going to go slow, use light sand paper, steel wool, and test some small areas first.

#52 3 years ago

just use some water in a spray bottle. spray it on the cabinet. The wood should grain on it's own and crack into the paint. lightly scuff some areas with sandpaper to add rub off.

#53 3 years ago

Nice to see woodrails are making a comeback.

#55 3 years ago

Dang it. Now I want to buy an IJ and do this. Thanks a lot.

#56 3 years ago

This is awesome - wish my IJ looked like that cab you're making!

Thanks for sharing the updated progress with us, Gap!

#61 3 years ago

I'll be going to Disney in June. I will definitely be taking more pictures of it. Also been one of my dreams to build that cabinet.

This is currently my favorite thread on pinside. Great work!

#62 3 years ago

I'd love to do something like this with POTC.

I'm surprised Disney never did.

Yeah, or at least have a POTC pinball machine in the Pirates gift shop(although it is pretty damned cramped in there) or in line since, whenever I'm there, it seems that the ride is always breaking down.

Progress update bump

A little more progress today, hoping to have it done by Expo. Sending playfield off to Bob Gould to get cleared. De-greased all the guts and swapped them over to the custom Indiana jones.

Very cool. Will you have the black and white Twilight Zone done by Expo too?

#68 3 years ago

Black and white TZ might be a stretch. Waiting to have the playfield done by a professional. Mostly not,

wow

now you need a real hat and whip as a topper!!!

#74 3 years ago

We are already thinking about a different take on the art work for the next one we do. Thinking a winged beattle for the cabinet sides and a egyptian god on either side of the head or egyptian cats.

Very Nice!!

Looking good Mike! And the coin door is just like the one at Disney, giving it the "real feel" that the machine has been on location for a fair amount of time.

#78 3 years ago

That's cool. Anyone ever think about one with a mine cart as the cabinet?

#79 3 years ago

A few more pics. Hope to Finish the game up this weekend. I may put in a color dmd also. What do think yes or no on color dmd.

Absolutely yes. The colordmd is great. And fantastic work on this! I came across this thread and always wanted to do this to mine as well. You guys really hit it out of the park.

#81 3 years ago

Very cool. Do you have a thread going about TZ? i would like to seem more of that!

#82 3 years ago

Looks fabulous! A color DMD would look good too. Another suggestion would be to make the coin door look like it was made of salvaged military parts, faded green boxy jeep style.

If you finish this and TZ do you have any other plans for new takes on the classics?

#83 3 years ago

That's beautiful! Nice job!

Mike, that playfield looks really nice. You should probably give the fellow Pinsider who restored it credit in this thread.

#85 3 years ago

Ok pretty much done with the Disney Indiana Jones I reproduced. I May do a little tweaking, might paint the hinges to match the cabinet. Going to put color dmd in tomorrow. Thanks to Rich Figarelli for doing the wood work and Bob Gould clearing the playfield.

Paint the hinges like The Walking Dead LE

#87 3 years ago

Fantastic work...as much as I love ColorDMD's, I think the orange dots fit this design better.

#88 3 years ago

Looks fantastic!

A rose between 2 thorn's.... well one thorn anyway.

#91 3 years ago

Looks great, but how are you supposed to slide stuff under it for storage (eg golf clubs, home brewing equipment, etc) with that bamboo running between the legs?

#92 3 years ago

It's surprising that the guy who did the original Disney one hasn't popped up here on pinside. Anyone know anything about that?

#93 3 years ago

I have seen the machine Great American Pinball (GAP) has and it looks great. I imagine Mike has linked the URL for the eBay auction somewhere, but if not here it is:

ebay.com link »

Beautiful work Mike.
Did you make the wooden lockdown bar a little more user friendly than the one at Disney? It sticks out pretty far over the flipper buttons.

Did this ever sell Mike?

#96 2 years ago

I took it off the market, because we did a custom Scared Stiff and hoping to get my black and white TZ done and have them all at expo this year.

#97 2 years ago

Are the sharp corners on the lock down bar hard on your hands as you work the flippers ?

They look like they would be. That's right where your palm rests.

Wear gloves with the fingers cut off.

Thanks for the update, see you at expo!
Dont think the Disneyland is out on the floor anymore. Was a rumor it was sold?
When yours came on ebay my buddy tried to convence me it was the Disney one. He hadn't seen your thread yet.
