VERY VERY nice! Great job. .

#57 1 year ago

Not to put a price on it .. but this has to be north of $10K in value here .. right?

$10K in value here .. right?

If not yet, it will by Christmas

For realz though, amazing job, can't wait for video game play.

Not sure but 10k sounds way to high. I paid $700 for the pin non working. Was in a fire. Have about double the purchases price in parts in and about 50-60 hours of time.

Holy cow, Bob. This is absolutely amazing. You did a fantastic job, man. Seriously impressive work. I can't wait to see the EK finished now. You have inspired me to try a full restore now.

Game is powered up with new boards. Looks like I need a transformer. Found one in Arizona. Game has no 43volts. Transformer is rusty from water damage.

You didn’t by chance make any scans of the overlay did you?

I did not . I have a extra overlay

Did you mean that as you want to sell it? I really don't want to go the overlay route, but I have a couple areas to touch up. What is it worth though?

On the inserts there are no letters etc... are those separate decals?

Any chance I can get some scans of that overlay from you? Thank you!

I might be interested. Would you possibly be interested in a trade, or just looking to sell outright?

I know this is a bit of an old thread, but if you mail one of your apron stickers to each of the original members with a detailed letter of your machine resto, I'd be willing to bet that Gene, Peter, Ace and Paul would all gladly put an autograph on it. Put a return envelope with postage paid inside with the sticker and letter, and mail the same one to each member one at a time. How nice would that look in the machine?

No I just always liked this thread. It inspired me to do my first resto
