    If you are in Michigan this weekend for the MPE, checkout FlipperCity's Backglass Restoration Event on Saturday 4/6/2013 from 10 to 5pm. (www.flippercity.com for address info). We will have many of the glasses restored on www.bgresto.com available for purchase.

    In addition, I will sell a few Bally EM and SS restorations out of my collection.

    Flipper City is hosting this event and will have their collection of 100+ working pinball machines, EM arcade games, and bowlers waiting to play along with refreshments and food...

    Thanks,

    Steve

    3pm – 4pm: Python Anghelo
    Python is one of the most talented artists in the industry and has worked on many of pinball’s all time great games such as PINBOT, Taxi, and Pinball Circus to name just a few. Python is currently working on a TOP SECRET project, so come to his seminar to find out what it is!

    4pm – 5pm: Steve “The King” Ritchie

People all over the world play and collect Steve’s pinball machines. Come see what he has to say about his past, present, and future pinball plans!

    5pm – 6pm: Skit-B Pinball

    I'm sure there will be plenty of "filler" spewed from this "hot dog".

    Any of the speakers presentations going to be recorded from the Michigan Pinball expo?

    All the presentations will be recorded. We hope everyone has a fun time all around this weekend, it's a good weekend for pinball for everyone!

    to the earlier post, Yes, there will be a TZ for sale.

    I couldn't make the MPE this year, So in the mean time I wanted to make this new back glass restoration services available to the MPE attendees and give you access to glasses that have already been restored. If you have a glass we have not done, we want to know about it. If you need a glass we have done and want to drop by during MPE and see it or purchase it, please come on by.

    Check out the MPE this weekend, looks like Saturday is going to have a great lineup... Like they said, no filler, just fun... if your busy with all of the events at MPE on Saturday, thats cool too.

    MPE makes pinball more accessible to a larger audience of potential enthusiasts. Back glass restorations hopefully will keep more games alive longer, look better, and motivate more of their owners to preserve them more often.

    Thanks

    interesting about the BG restoration

    #11 7 years ago

    Seems like there's odd tension in this thread. Put it to rest fellas: Detroit Pinball City!

    #12 7 years ago

    No tension here, just poking fun. The backglass restoration process they are doing is very cool and you should check it out if you have the time.

    #13 7 years ago

    I'm excited for a weekend of pinball. Enterprise even put me in a minivan! I don't wanna put the extra miles on the Subaru.

    #14 7 years ago

    WOW... checked out the bgrestro.com site, and the work looks amazing. PM sent about some possible work I would like to have done to restore an old EM backglass. Please let me know if I should just send an email through the website.

    I can't go to the expo this weekend...
